Hello, my friends! The best thing about today? It’s Saturday.
With all of the cake orders I have had in the last few weeks, I have to say that a week jam-packed full of cookies was a welcome change! While cakes are definitely my favorite creative outlet, there is something so relaxing about piping cookie after cookie, and I think everyone knows by now that I love creating beautiful things in smaller sizes.
Here is but one set that resulted from this week’s labor.
I hope they will put a big smile on our teachers’ faces!
I also pulled out my video camera for a little while and put together this fun video of the making of the chalkboard cookies. It is short and fun!
If you know anything about me, you likely know that I started decorating cookies basically out of nowhere three years ago. I take pride in all that I have learned, developed and grown when it comes to my business, especially because I am self-taught (with the help of the internet).
Incredible amounts of learning and studying up have lead me to where I am in my cake and cookie decorating!
I am guessing there are so many other people out there like me, who have had an interest but never known where to start! A few basic YouTube videos and Craftsy classes really cleared up the basics for me and gave me enough base knowledge to move forward!
I am so passionate about online learning, because the knowledge is really at your finger tips.
One of my very favorite online learning avenues, Craftsy, is having a wonderful sale this weekend… 50% off of their NEW classes!
This includes a class I have taken (ok, a TON of classes I have taken, but ONE in particular), by my absolute cookie idol Callye Alvarado of Sweet Sugarbelle. Must. have. this. class. Seriously – a class by Callye for UNDER $20. If you have been at all tempted to give it a go, this is a great place to start.
I love to share my passion for sugar… it has brought so much joy into my life and I know it could for some of you also!
