Mini Tutorial: Filling Pastry Bags

I get a lot of questions on this topic, so I decided to do a quick video.  My way isn’t really the only way, it’s just what works for me.  Actually, that’s almost the best tip I know.  I can tell you what I do, but that isnt the only way. The key is taking that information and turning it into what works best for you!  =)
Its a little long winded according to my husband, but I hope it helps! I’d also like to recommend another great blog post by my friend Marian at Sweetopia on staying organized while decorating.  This is not my forte, although my intentions are good…Thank goodness for an organized husband!

Today, I have a  few cookies and some fun Sunday stuff to share.
I had this wet on wet idea for Fancy Nancy’s hair, so I had to try it.  I REALLY like the result. 

I made these cookies for my neighbor’s son.  I think this might have been my first crack at Mickey…?
This is another fun use for your Christmas ornament cutter.  It can also be done with a balloon cutter, but I like the round head better. Although, the more I think about it, the balloon might be more accurate =)?

This was my fun find of the week.  I couldn’t leave this one behind!  Too bad they didn’t have a boy version! It almost makes me want to skip the expensive uncomfortable Christmas dress!  All from discount stores, and my precious SugarBelle wears it well.

And finally, I wanted to share this cool tip I learned from my friend Keri, many many years ago… if you overbake your cookies a little, OR, if you just want to keep them fresh and soft, use this trick.  Store them in an airtight container with a slice of bread. It works every time!

  Have a good Sunday, everyone!
