Sugarbelle Shape Shifter Set
- Begin by baking a batch of sugar cookie dough and cut out the shapes.
- Let the cookies cool completely before you begin to decorate.
- Use the plastic template that is provided in the Shape Shifter Set and trace it onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
- Outline and flood the center of the ballet slippers with the white icing.
- Outline the outer edge of the slippers with the green icing and let it dry for several hours or overnight.
- Once the white royal icing has had time to dry use the plastic template and the food safe marker to draw the template onto the cookies.
- You want to make sure the icing is dry so you don’t polk a hole in it with the tip of the marker.
- With the green icing pipe over the pattern you drew to make the ribbons. Or is it elastic? Or is it elastic that is covered up with ribbons? Can you tell I’m not a ballerina?
- Flood the rest of the cookies green and let it dry for a few hours.
- Add a dot of pink icing for the flower on the tip of the ballet slipper. Guess what? The template Sugarbelle provided even has a hole so you know exactly where to place the flower. This set of cookie cutters couldn’t be more perfect.
- With the leaf tip pipe a leaf on each side of the flower.
- Add the detailed line to the rose. The icing should be a little on the thicker side so it will hold it’s shape.

I love Sugarbells Ballet Slipper Cookies and I’m so glad I finally got to make them!
If you were sitting around with nothing to do and were to think about Sweet Sugarbelle making cookie cutters, I bet you imagined the shapes she has in her Shape Shifter Set. She has a way of making cutters that change shapes so they can be used in so many different ways. The set has 20 cutter with 40 designs! The only way this set could be better is if Callye popped out when we opened the box. Will you work on that for us Callye?
Thanks Callye for loving the cookie community and helping us make cookies so we can dance on our tip toes!
