Fall Baking

This time of year I get excited to bake cookies. I’ve been collecting cookie cutters for a long time and have them organized by occasion and holiday. Recently someone anonymously sent me a fox cookie cutter which appeared at my front door. Here are the cookies I made this week. Let the baking begin!

India Inspiration

A friend of mine is having a party this weekend and will be sharing a slideshow of her trip to India. Last year I painted this watercolor for a friend who just came back from there. Yesterday I made these decorated sugar cookies to bring for the celebration.

Christmas Sugar Cookies

Baking treats for the holiday and giving them away is one of my favorite things. Right now my freezer is full of cookies and I’ve already given away several dozen of them. The recipe I use is Martha Stewart’s sugar cookie and royal icing recipe. Since I’ve been baking cutout cookies for so long, I’ve collected lots of cookie cutters and icing materials. My favorite decorating item is the edible sparkling glitter especially the one that looks like snow.

 

Here are some of the cookies I’ve made.

In 2016, I experimented with a new technique and painted on the the decorations with food color gel mixed with a tiny bit of royal icing. I found the process to be a lot quicker and was happy with the results.

Easter Cookies 2017

Yesterday afternoon I finished my Easter cookies. This year rather than making dozens of shapes, I decided to make two dozen large eggs. I iced them with white royal icing and then used gel color and painted the decorations on them. ABC Cake Decorating Supplies in Phoenix is my favorite place to purchase baking supplies. It is a baker’s dream.

Happy Easter!

Easter Baking

Are you going to do any baking for Easter this year? Baking cookies for Easter is my favorite occasion for decorating cookies with royal icing. My inspiration came from a set of springtime cookie cutters which have a lamb, bunny rabbit and a butterfly. Since Easter is only a little over a week away, it’s time to get inspired. Here are some sugar cookies I’ve made in the past. I use Martha Stewart’s sugar cookie and royal icing recipe. I better get busy if I am going to bake any this year.
