#8 The Perfect Accessories for all Your SWEETS!
There are so many things to do as the holidays approach. We need to make Thanksgiving dinner, buy Christmas presents, find the perfect gift for our spouse, and dress our cookies so they’ll be the shining star on the dessert table! Do you feel the pressure? You don’t have to be that stressed because I know where you can find the perfect accessories for all your sweets!
Hillary Ramos at The Cookie Countess will show you how to add a little sparkle, stencil a pattern, or airbrush some unique designs to make sure your cookies and sweets will be set apart from the rest. Her store has products you’ll love along with tutorials that will help you become a better decorator.
Have you seen The Cookie Countess Black Friday Deals yet? You can get a sneak peek and make a plan for supplies you need. I’m sure you’re going to find inspiration for all your sweets when you start looking at the products on her site. I feel like Hillary keeps me up to date on new products. Did you know what Roxy & Rich Sparkle Dust Pumps were? I didn’t until she showed them on her site. It looks like a great way to brighten a cookie or add a little sparkle to your cakes. I can’t wait to try them.
Speaking of new tools, the Precision Rolling Pin is my new favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I still use my J.K. Adams 19″ x 2″ Maple Wood Rolling Dowel for pies, biscuits and chasing away bears (not really, I have a cowbell for that), but the Precision Rolling Pin is now the fav for making cookies. The cookie dough is the perfect thickness every time no matter how hard I push down when I roll it out.
So Hillary keeping me up to date on products and gives me options for perfect accessories like stencils, molds, food gel colors, airbrush colors and so many things that make me a better decorator. She inspires me. She helps supply my cookies with personality, sparkle and video tutorials that makes things simple. Thanks, Hillary!
If you’ve listened to the podcast I’m sure you’ve heard how Georganne and I decided to take some money from Hillary’s poor husband Jon at Cookie Con 2014. We gave it back, but the look on Jon’s face and the joy on Georganne’s face were hysterical. So here’s a tip for you, if you go to Cookie Con, don’t carry your money in your back pocket. Who knows what Georganne and I might do! 😉

UPDATE: I like the name for Hillary’s Precision Rolling Pin. I don’t want to change the name of it. I’m one of those weird people who give everything in my house a name. Like my airbrush gun is named “Wendy” because she sprays wind. My Kitchenaid mixer is named Arnold Schwarzenegger because he beats everything up for me.We need help!

So when it comes to my rolling pin, I think mine needs a cool name like ‘Roly Poly’ from the movie Pillow Talk with Doris Day and Rock Hudson. So can you think of a good name? Rick the Roller or something funny. Can you think of a good name?
