I especially loved making the swirl roses that I used to decorate the cookies.
I used several blogs for inspiration but my favorite was The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle. She has great tutorials and so much creativity. You can find her here.
These cookies were made with my favorite sugar cookie recipe. You can find it here. I used Royal Icing, piped and flooded, then decorated with royal icing swirl roses and Wilton Pearls.
I was pretty happy for my first attempt at a "Fancy" cookie!! Who know's what will be next??? I can feel the creative juices churning in my head....or is that a headache from all my seasonal allergies coming on (LOL)!!!
