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!
