Peanut Butter and Jelly Decorated Cookies via Sweetsugarbelle.com

When it comes to decorated cookies, there's no right or wrong way to approach a design. These peanut butter and jelly cookies are the perfect example. I've made peanut butter and jelly cookies before, but this time I needed something a bit smaller, so, I took an entirely different route. I'm sure it won't surprise anyone to learn that I own a mini-toast cutter. I found it in a Christmas play dough set from Target last year and justified my … [Read more...]

Decorated Rose Cookies for Valentine’s Day

Decorated Rose Cookie Close-Up

I don't know if I should be ashamed or proud, but it's amazing the ways I come up with to avoid work. Usually, cookies are the exception, but lately I've become L-A-Z-Y. Rose cookies have been on the agenda since January, but in the last few weeks even the simple version seemed like too much effort. So, I came up with an even simpler design. Behold the most recent result of my total lack of motivation...even simpler Valentine's Day rose … [Read more...]

Shark Week Cookies

Note to self: If you make a bunch of dinosaur cookies to get ahead for your son's birthday, he will inevitably decide (one day before the party) to change his theme. That's where easy shark fin cookies come into play.  These cookies are so simple, you can probably start one day before the party and finish with time to spare.

Decorated Mermaid Cookies

Decorated Mermaid Cookie_SweetSugarBelle

Instead of "Simple Mermaid Cookies", I'm calling these "Relatively Simple Mermaid Cookies". Truth is, there's nothing simple about mermaid cookies.  In fact, this is probably more of an intermediate cookie, but if you're going to decorate mermaids...this is about as simple as it gets. Since I'm not really into hand-cutting, I used a cutter from my collection.  This fish is from the Betty Crocker 101 Piece Set.  If you don't have this … [Read more...]
