First Cookies of the New Year 2013!

January 8, 2013 | Filed Under Cookies 

Mischief Mari of Cha no ma-ri has always inspired with me with her cookie-decorating skills. 

I never thought I could be capable of decorating my own cookies until I’d read her recently-released book: 

the coolest cookies on the planet by mari pfeiffer

It’s a really fun, inspiring and easy-to-read book.


So, for the New Year, I set out to bake and decorate some cookies!



I made sugar cookies from a recipe in Mari’s book.



I made Royal Icing.


I had fun choosing my icing colors.


Then I set out decorate.

Of course, I need a lot of practice, but I‘ve just begun.  

Let’s see what type of decorated cookies I’ll make  during this new year.

I hope to get better and better!
