Quick Cookies- Ninja

I’ve never baked, made icing, and decorated all in one day.  It’s usually easier to let each piece of the cookie dry to ensure quality.  Since I had to quickly whip up some cookies for our friend, I made ninja cookies all in one day!

They were pretty cute (and still wet for the photos!) and were consumed just as quickly as they were made!

Baby One More Time

A few other cute baby cookies I sent to Dallas for my sister and Campbell’s shower!

These were the first cookies where I tried the one bowl method (mixing all colors in one bowl).  I read a couple of cookie blogs and have referenced Sweet Sugarbelle before.  Her site is so helpful with tutorials!  I think the colors look really good together!

Denver Broncos Cookies

Things are getting exciting here in Denver.  Tomorrow’s a big game against a formidable team.  The whole town has gone mad with Broncos fever!

Here’s a set of Broncos cookies I made complete with Payton Manning jerseys. The helmets are a nod to the old-school Denver “D” but aren’t that awful brown and yellow throwback. {visual reference here} Here’s hoping tomorrow will go well for the Broncos!

Going to the Chapel

Last December I made a bunch of diamond ring cookies for my sweet friend who was getting married.  I managed to fly them home, decorate them, and take turns at about 5 miles an hour all the way to the party!  They were my first go at a diamond ring cookie.  There are so many others out there (there’s really only one cutter that EVERYONE uses), but I thought the swirls were cute.Since it’s wedding season, I’ve been testing out a few other cookie ring looks!  I’ll share those soon!

Let the Good Times Roll

A while back, I made a batch of Bunco cookies for a family friend.  They turned out very cute and would work well for a casino night!

I’ve had a couple of people weary of black icing.  I read about it and have tested a few different things.  The easiest way to make black icing is to use a high-quality, black coloring.  It doesn’t have the strange taste, and gives you a nice color.  I’ve also tried mixing left-overs from all of my other colors to make black.  It taste exactly the same (which is only like almond!).
