I specialize in custom cookies, cupcakes and cake pops. I use only the best ingredients and hand decorate each treat myself!  Don't see what you are looking for? I love custom orders! Feel free to email me with a special request!

With the 4th right around the corner (literally!), I thought I’d show you all a quick and easy way to make perfect stripes by hand.  Break out the rulers, cuz here we go!

 

Start with your baked, cooled cookies.  I used stars and hearts.

Using a food pen, draw a line from tip to tip of the star. (I prefer using a light color pen)

This is really the hardest part: I mark the center of the cookie as my focal point.  From there I figured out how big I could make my stripes.  Then made my marks.  My cookie was 4 inches and I wanted 5 stripes so I made them each a smidge over 3/4 of an inch.

Now draw your stripes :)

Pipe one color at a time and let it dry completely before adding the next color.  I started with the top (just made sense to me;))

I use 20 second icing, cuz I’m lazy like that! LOL!

Then add your stripes.

Now for the finishing touches….

I thought I’d change things up and make cute dots instead of stars on my little flags.  What’s life without a little whimsy, right?

Ta-Da!!  Have a happy and SAFE 4th of July!!

Recently, I was asked to make butterfly cookies, naturally, I [...]
