I’ve been so busy lately teaching cookie decorating classes that I’ve hardly had any time to make a tutorial! I’m glad to be back here sharing a new project with you. This week, a few of my Tastemade network friends and I have gotten together to bring you some rainbow themed treats! I made these dripping rainbow cookies using the royal icing transfer method with a little help from gravity.

Mimi Fix of Baking Fix and I are joining forces! We’ve planned a Cookie Decorating and Marketing Workshop on Saturday, August 23rd at my studio here in Beacon, New York. During the first three hours of the class, we’ll focus on how to make royal icing, flooding and the wet-on-wet technique. In the afternoon, Mimi will walk you through the process of creating a business plan.
I took one of Mimi’s classes before I opened my business and it was so informative and helpful. I’m fortunate to have her come to my studio to share her knowledge! Click on the poster below for more information and to reserve your spot in the class.

It’s watermelon season!

If you’re still not sure what to bring to the 4th of July picnic this weekend, give these a try!

Cake Slice Cookies

When I was decorating some monogram anniversary cookies for my friends the other day, I decided to give them some “snacking” cookies, too, just in case they wanted to hang on to the monograms as a keepsake. As I was cutting a few round cookies into little slices to pack up, I was reminded of Sugarbelle’s mini pumpkin pie slice cookies, which then led me to a memory of a book that I had growing up. It was something about a kid who couldn’t sleep and then he called his grandma and his grandma shrunk down so she could come through the phone and they ate a piece of cake. Anyone else know what I’m talking about?? No? Okay. Anyway, this is how I remember the cake slice from that book. I’ve thought about it over the years from time to time because it was so pretty and yummy looking. Cake-Slice-Cookie4 Continue reading
