The basic sugar cookie and royal icing recipes came from Sweet Sugarbelle. I just love her blog and her cookies inspire me to keep trying, although I am completely aware that my cookies will never look as incredible as hers. And, that’s okay with me. I’m totally happy just baking and decorating, whatever the results.
That said, I really do love this year’s cutouts!! Little a and I had way too much fun (and spent way too much time) transforming simple cookies into our own little works of art. The table was bursting with royal icing, sparkling sugar, sprinkles, doo-dads and, of course, my (ahem) personal favorite…DISCO DUST.
We made lots of other cookies that I will share soon, and…we had a very special guest baker this year! I won’t keep you in suspense long. Promise.
