My love for baking started when I was a kid, making Christmas cookies with my mom. Over the years, decorating sugar cookies has become a creative outlet that I really enjoy. Oddly enough, I was under the impression for most of my life that I didn’t have an artistic bone in my body. I always struggled to draw, sculpt, or paint anything. But put a tube of royal icing in my hand and it’s game on! I have a ridiculous sweet tooth – so if I am going to have a creative hobby, it’s only natural that it involves sugar 🙂
I started this blog thinking it would be a nice way to document the cookies, the process, and most importantly – the occasions that inspire them. I was also hoping it would motivate me to bake more often. I had become a bit of a workaholic and needed to focus more on things like this that I really enjoy. I mean …who doesn’t like cookies? It’s been over a year now, and I have learned more and more tricks and attempted more designs along the way. Not that I’m patting myself on the back or anything, but I am very grateful to have found a hobby that I not only genuinely enjoy, but others find pleasure in as well.
Thank you to all who have supported me so far and for all new friends I meet along the way 🙂
