Learn how to make some blood pressure cuff decorated sugar cookies for your favorite doctor, nurse, or medical professional with this royal icing cookie decorating tutorial!!  

If you've known me for longer than seven seconds, you might be vaguely aware that SUGAR is kind of a thing at my house. I did one of those "sugar diets" once -- you know, where you pretend like you can go an entire 30 days without eating any added sugars. I was mighty proud of myself when I made it to 10am on the first day. MY-TEE PROUD.

Use this icing color palette and the formulas to make icing for your next sloth cookie project!! 


I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.

When I make different colors with the same ratios (like the pinks and browns above), I usually make the darkest color first. Then I add some of the darker colored icing into a bowl of fresh white icing to make a lighter version of the same icing.

Learn how to make some adorable sloth decorated sugar cookies with this royal icing cookie decorating tutorial!!  


When I made my very first decorated cookie - I lived alone in Colorado. My husband was deployed. I had one child. And one friend. And cookies were sugar.... so really - I had TWO friends.

When I moved to South Korea and had to give up making cakes entirely and started making cookies for REAL and not just for kidding any more... I was still just a girl and her sugar. I had a Ziploc bag full of cookie cutters. And a baking sheet that could fit six cut-outs at a time.

At that time, this new wave of cookie decorating was really just beginning. And by "new wave," I mean -- cookies that were CRAZY adorable and still delicious at the same time. For decades, cookie decorating had either been one or the other. The cookies looked good OR they tasted good. And suddenly - you could have both.

As it turns out...people kind of liked that whole thing. Since the first moment that the second child was born on earth, there has been a desire to stand out, to be unique.** And "custom" allows people to do that. And I don't think it will surprise anyone that the rise in popularity of custom decorated sugar cookies coincided with the introduction of Pinterest.

MY POINT IS -- (You guys are SO DISTRACTING.) -- I lived in South Korea with a single box full of decorating supplies. And I had at least five friends. And they were all online cookie decorating friends that would chat with me at 3 am when I was up with my very newborn babies. You guys -- I was pretty sure that I was LIVING THE DREAM.

Skin tone icing color palette and the formulas you need to recreate them! 


I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.


If you're not sure what the "parts" mean, or how to use these formulas, check out THIS POST for detailed step-by-step photos!

When I make different colors with the same ratios (like the 1st and 2nd or 3rd and 5th colors above), I usually make the darkest color first. Then I add some of the darker colored icing into a bowl of fresh white icing to make a lighter version of the same icing.

When I make very light or pale icing colors, I mix the food coloring into a very small amount of icing (2 tablespoons) first and then use that saturated icing to color the rest of my icing. (Check out THIS POST for details.)

A soft and chewy no-chill and no-spread honey graham roll out sugar cookie recipe that is perfect for decorated cookies.

I don't think it's a secret that I'm obsessed with my own chocolate sugar cookie recipe. I think I could make it blindfolded, using only chopsticks and a broken Lego. Except for the oven part. That would just be dangerous. And I may be a risk taker...but not with ovens. Or alligators.

But you guys. These cookies rival even The End All Chocolate Cookies.

Learn how to make some adorable and fun sheep or lamb decorated sugar cookies with this royal icing cookie decorating tutorial!!  

I never know how to explain what I do to people. When they ask, I usually tell them something super clever like -  "Stuff." But since people typically don't understand all the details and nuances that I've associated with that word throughout the entire history of my existence, it usually requires a follow up along the lines of, "I make cookies every day of my life."

Learn how to make some simple Easter Bunny decorated sugar cookies with this royal icing cookie decorating tutorial!!  



Every winter, I live in fear of my computer breaking down. Because that means I will have to take it to an actual person that uses words like “hard drive” and “ram” and “Why is there gold in the card reader?”

But really... my biggest fear is that secretly they will check my internet history and see all of my internet research for "electric pants" and misunderstand my purpose.
