Sneak Peak into Fall

14 Sep

With fall here, that means the holiday season is lurking just around the corner.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to rush things.  I know I’ll be longing for these 80 degree days in a few short months.

That said, I have been working on some fall sugar cookies… and perhaps baking with pumpkin and apple.  But that’s not crazy like Christmas trees in September (really, why so early?).

Anyway, I thought you might enjoy a little peak into the sugar cookie design process.

It all begins with me sketching out designs, complete with colors and decorating ideas.

Then I pick cookies that will use the same royal icing colors.

While the cookies are baking, I make, color and prep the royal icing.

Once the cookies are cooled, I outline the design.

Then the cookies are flooded.

Finally, all the embellishments – dots, lines, writing – are added.  You’ll have to stay tuned to see the final product.  Be sure to check back in early October!

    Those squeeze bottles of icing look exactly like the bottles of paint still sitting in the cabinet of Anna’s bathroom. Creating on paper…creating on dough. Lots of similarities!
