After finding a fabulous book on making yummy and tasty treats, I decided upon my first project: Sugar Cookies.
This seemed like a nice path into making beautiful creations without getting too complicated. At this point, I have never made my own icing or mixed my own batter. Not to mention rolling out dough and freezing, rolling, cutting, freezing... or techniques such as "floating", "piping", "BAKING!".
Vanilla sugar cookies with Royal Icing (a recipe I will become quite familiar with as time goes on.
First I thought "hearts" then I thought, Tiffany Blue! The sugar cookie was great, not too sweet- more like a shortbread. The Royal Icing is VERY sweet, so the combination was perfect.
