ABOUT DECORATING COOKIES
Let cookie guru Bridget Edwards guide you through more than 60 delicious cookie-decorating designs for every occasion and holiday, from luscious springtime daisies to spooky spider webs to personalized birthdays. Cookie dough and royal icing recipes are included, and every iced design features easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photos. Five guest-star baker-bloggers each share a special decorating technique: Amanda Rettke of i am baker, Marian Poirer of Sweetopia, Gail Dosik of One Tough Cookie, Meaghan Mountford of The Decorated Cookie, and Callye Alvarado of The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.
Bridget Edwards has been decorating cookies for more than a decade and eating them for as long as she can remember. A self-taught cookie decorator, Bridget started the blog Bake at 350, bakeat350.blogspot.com, in 2007 to share the secrets of cookie decorating through easy to follow step-by-step tutorials. Her cookies have been featured on MarthaStewart.com, Texas Live Magazine, FoodGawker, and The Official Star Wars Blog. In 2010, she was thrilled to host a cookie decorating workshop with Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. Bridget lives in Texas with her husband, son, and two kitties.
This is such a great book. The table of contents has an index with thumbnail photos of all of the projects in the book!
Some of the cookie designs included are:
- Tiger & Panda
- Circus Elephants
- Ballet Slippers
- Bridal Shower Monograms
- I “Heart” Mom Tattoos
- Edible Father’s Day Coupons
- Beer & Hot Dogs
- Summer Strawberries
- Pirate Boys, Parrots & Treasure Maps
- Halloween Black Cats
- Dia de los Muertos Skulls
- Mugs of cocoa
- Under the Mistletoe
- and more
The recipes are easy to understand. There are TONS of photos in this book, far more then one per page or one per recipe. The book teaches just about everything you could ever want to know about making cookies, including tips on prep and baking, as well as detailed tutorials for decorating. This book would be perfect for anyone that enjoys entertaining, enjoys baking, wants to learn how to decorate cookies, or already knows how to bake and wants to learn more.
