I didn’t plan on making pineapple cookies, but I saw an opportunity and I took it. These cookies are a by-product of another set of cookies I’ve been working on this week. I needed a small circle cutter and couldn’t find one that was right size even after I searched through all my cutters. So I grabbed my car keys and started to leave and it hit me. I did have a circle cutter that was the right size. The only thing about it was it was attached to a bigger cutter. It’s Sweet Sugarbelle’s Donut Cookie Cutter.

The circle in the center of the donut was the perfect size for what I needed. Once I used the center I was left with a donut cookie. If your not in the mood for donuts, go healthy and make some pineapples.

Have you seen all the cute little cacti everywhere? They’re growing in popularity everyday. If you want to have a party with a cactus theme now would be a good time because you can find cactus decorations everywhere. You can even make your own cactus candy decorations with the free templates I’ve made for you. If you don’t like royal icing, you can make them with chocolate and use them on cakes and cupcakes.

The last few days I’ve been watching two cute little bunnies outside of my kitchen window. I’ve never seen such playful rabbits in my life! They hop, and chase each other all around the yard. Then, they hop under my husbands truck and sit there like they’re waiting to pounce on whoever walks by the truck. They’re so fast that most of the time I only see a blur of their feet flashing like they’re some kind of Flash Lightening Superhero. After watching them, I had to make bunny paw candy even though I didn’t make them for Easter. I know, I know. I’m late as usual, but this time I totally blame the bunnies! Maybe they worked too hard delivering all those Easter baskets last week and now they’re rejoicing a job well done.

I have a dream. It’s a simple dream about making bread and different things that involve using yeast. You know, that magical stuff that makes everything taste delicious. The only problem is I haven’t invested enough time into learning all of the secrets of how to make delicious dough. I can’t seem bring myself to slow down enough to learn how to make gorgeous artisan bread. It makes me sad, but at least I can make pretzel cookies that look like real pretzels.

I know it’s not the same, but it’ll have to do until I get brave and tackle the yeast!

Sugar Cookies part 2 is here! Today we are going to talk about a few things I’ve learned through the years. I’ve tried a lot of different techniques to make decorating cookies simple without going crazy buying tons of new gadgets and falling for every new idea out there. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a gadget girl if the gadget works! In the video we are going to talk about how to transfer a pattern to a cookie using four different techniques. You can spend over a hundred dollars for things like a KopyKake (yes this is a gadget I bought years ago and it does work) or you can use a simple trick that is practically free.

Do you know what Royal Icing Candy Decorations are and how to use them? Better yet, do you know how to make your own? They have many different names like candy decorations, royal icing transfers, layons, and edible decorations and I usually refer to them as royal icing transfers or candy decorations. They’re basically designs you make by piping royal icing onto wax or parchment paper and let them dry completely. Sometimes it can take a day or two depending on the humidity. Once they’re dry you carefully remove them and store them flat or in little jars so they don’t break. You know, since they are made with royal icing they can easily break, but they’re an incredible tool for decorating cookies.

So now that we all know what candy decorations are, did you know you can use PicMonkey to make your own? If you’ve never heard of PicMonkey or thought about using it to make candy decorations, you should. It’s a site that is used for photo editing and it offers premium features that will allow you do all kinds of crazy cool things to your photos. You can add text, make Christmas Cards, Candy Bag Toppers and almost anything you can imagine. You can also use the overlays to make templates for your candy decorations.

Have I told you lately that I love you! Because of you, I’ve got an amazing job. It let’s me travel to places like Salt Lake City, Utah to a magical place called Cookie Con! In case you didn’t know, I was an instructor this year where I taught a class about cookie fundamentals or as I call it “Bearfoot Basics”.  I know life happens and stops us from doing the things we want to do. I don’t think we should let it stop us from going over the Bearfoot Basics Sugar Cookies 101 together.

Incase a “busy life” made you miss it, I’ve come up with a way to share the class with you. I’ve turned the slide presentation into a series of videos so you can be a part of it with us. Now, the class is long so we are going to break it down into a few different videos. The first is called “Sugar Cookies 101.” It’ll show you the a video about things I’ve learned through the years.

Just like I promised those of you who took my class in Utah, heres the class so you can keep it at your fingertips. I added a few things like a video clip on how to remove the cookie dough from the Flexible Cutting Mats and how to get a nice flat surface on your cookies. I’ll be adding a little more than I did in the Cookie Con class because we’ll have a little more time to cover more issues. If you have a question, email me and I’ll do my best to find the answer for you.
