I have been inspired! I recently came across a great blog called Bake at 350. This wonderful blog is filled with treats that look mouthwatering and make you want to RUN into the kitchen or better yet her kitchen to try them out! After spending a really long time looking and drooling over all the creations on her site I became inspired to try my hand at making some cookies decorated in Royal Icing. Her instructions make what seems at first glance an intimidating project straightforward and uncomplicated. So when a family friend asked me to make some cookies for her daughters Hawaiian themed Birthday I know that I wanted to try these out! (I did make a batch of peanut butter chocolate chip and a batch of oatmeal cranberry just in case!)
I followed her instructions on both making the Royal Icing, found here as well her instructions on flooding and decorating found here. I highly recommend trying these instructions - once you make the first one and see how fun it is you will be hooked! My hubby even got in on the action and was having a great time decorating!
I am deciding on a theme for some Thanksgiving cookies for next week and will post the cookie recipe later this week! Jump on over to Bake at 350 for some inspiration!
