I began making Royal Icing glazed cookies in 2008, and each time I make a set, I learn something new, and (hopefully) improve. I initially was inspired by a cookie bouquet gift given to my husband and challenged myself to see if I could produce such an interesting and pleasing product. I began making platters for my children’s “Teacher Appreciation Day” at school and progressed to gifts for team coaches, teachers, family and friends. As I improve, I become more obsessed to try new techniques. I like to give gifts that don’t create household clutter and, ironically, am acquiring more clutter/stuff for myself, in the form of cookie cutters and associated cookie making paraphernalia! Oh, my!!
I think if you compare the two pictures, you might notice a slight improvement in my technique…? : )
I am creating this blog primarily for myself, as a diary of my progress and to include details for future projects. Come along for the ride, if you wish!
