Bunny Track Cookies

Bunny Track Cookies

Every year around this time, an old familiar tune starts running through my brain.  "Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail...hippity, hoppity Easter's on it's way!" With all the bunnies hopping around in my brain, of course I had to make cookies! As I've mentioned before, my inspiration comes from the strangest of places.  Would you believe the entire time I was working on these polar pal cookies I was seeing bunny … [Read more...]

Decorated Moose Cookies

Moose Cookies SweetSugarBelle

Last week, when I shared my decorated bear cookies several of you wanted to know more about Mr. Moose. You know that old saying, "Ask and you shall receive?"  I'm pretty sure it wasn't referring to moose cookies, but we'll overlook that today. The first time around I used an older Wilton bear cutter to make these cookies.  I liked the angle of the arms and the extra ear space the lower body allowed. However, since this cutter is no … [Read more...]

Panda Bear Cookies

Panda Cookie Platter for Chinese New Year_Sweetsugarbelle

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed an unfortunate lack of bear face cookie cutters on the market today?  The ones I've found are either way too big or way too small. While I wait for someone to remedy this, I'm limited to using what I have.  While I've been known to morph frog cutters into bear faces, this time around I wanted something a little "rounder". I used simple circle cutters to piece together these panda face cookies.  When … [Read more...]

Decorated Cardinal Cookies

Cardinal Cookie Sweetsugarbelle

I've always wanted to make cardinal cookies, but I've never been able to find quite the right cutter.  This year, I decided to make it happen. It took a little thought, but when it finally hit me I was super excited...and a little sad I hadn't thought of it earlier.  I made this cookie using  a simple egg trimmed with a heart.  If you want a curvier bird, a flip-flop works well too. Like many of my cookies {on a good week} my cardinals … [Read more...]

Decorated Rose Cookies

Decorated Rose Bud Cookie

Believe it or not, I have never been a rose kind of girl.  It's always bothered me that something so expensive dies in just a few days.  That doesn't mean I'm not a romantic.  I just prefer gifts that last a little longer or at least taste good. I really like these cookies because they were inspired by a paper bouquet my little boy made for me. When I looked at the rose, I immediately saw a bell.  The longer I thought about it, I saw even … [Read more...]
