GUEST POST -- Sweet Bliss Cookie Company Happy Accident Rose

Sometimes (OFTEN!!) things don't turn out like we planned. And sometimes (I can neither confirm nor deny the frequency at which this happens) we cry to ourselves as we scrape cookies into the garbage. Sometimes (usually) we can salvage the cookie and even though it may not be our new adequately passes as a decorated cookie in the appropriate theme. But SOMETIMES...magic happens. This rose by Jamie from Sweet Bliss Cookie Company came from one of those magic moments.

Fantastic Find: Precision Rolling Pin

Sometimes I feel like this is what it must have been like to live in the Industrial Revolution. know...this one is a Cookie Revolution.

You guys. I hope you are ready for this blog post. When Shirlyn  of Cookies Art by Shirlyn showed me these graphic design style floral wedding cookies I almost lost my mind. They are GORGEOUS!!!! The colors! The details! I'm still obsessing over them. I just kept going back over and over again like a total creeper in the night just staring at them. Luckily for all of us, even though Shirlyn had just moved to the United States, she sweetly agreed to show us all how she made them!!! Isn't she the best?!!!

When Georganne contacted me to ask if I can write a guest post, I was so excited and happy to do it for sure! She asked if I can do tutorial on how to make one of the two designs (Cake Stand and Congratulations) from the bridal shower set I did back in March. I just told her - I am going to do both!

I thought I would throw it back old-school to my very first challenge ever and go with a Cutter Challenge! But instead of making you all use the same shape... you get to choose from all the cutters I've designed this year!!

Before I tell you the rules...let me tell you about the prizes! Because...well..prizes. So much more fun.

How to Make Decorated Jean Pocket Cookies

When I was in fourth grade, we learned fractions with the help of the future. And by that I mean - Laser Discs. They were a precursor to DVDs...but were the size of a record. FOR THE LOVE DO NOT ask me what a record is. In my ten years of wisdom, I was absolutely certain that these Laser Discs were going to change the world. They were going to be everywhere. I was going to have an entire collection of Laser Discs at my disposal and I would lie on a couch somewhere desperately trying to get them to "scan" through to the next chapter and finally achieve half-hearted success and be thrilled out of my mind. My young brain could see it all.
