Learn how to make these brightly colored fiesta cactus decorated sugar cookies with this royal icing cookie decorating tutorial!! 

My oldest child is in middle school. I think I might have possibly blocked out all memories of my OWN experience in middle school, because as a parent I legitimately thought middle school would be like elementary school...but with taller kids and a little more homework.

As it turns out, I was not even remotely accurate.


Fall Cookie Decorating Kit GIVEAWAY!!!

(Hey!! Don't miss out! I'm giving away one of these kits at the bottom of the post! )



Starting new things is hard. Even just knowing WHERE TO START a new thing can be hard. Cookie decorating is no different.

I kind of LOVE decorating sugar cookies. Like a lot. And I know that if I could come over to every person's house and get them all set up for decorating a set of cookies... decorated cookies could take over the world. Decorating is so fun and exciting while simultaneously also being calming and therapeutic. Also. SUGAR. It's really got something for everyone.

I went to Costco today.

If you don't know what Costco is....it's a giant warehouse store. You pay money to have a card that lets you in the door so you can spend a ridiculous amount of money every time you go there because everything is sold in bulk and WEIRDLY...bulk items completely bypass my impulse control center.


Tropical Toucan Color Palette and Icing Formulas

Use this icing color palette and the formulas to make icing for your next tropical or jungle cookie project!! 
I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.


If you're not sure what the "parts" mean, or how to use these formulas, check out THIS POST for detailed step-by-step photos!

When I make different colors with the same ratios (like the pinks above), I usually make the darkest color first. Then I add some of the darker colored icing into a bowl of fresh white icing to make a lighter version of the same icing.

Grab the cutters: toucan, flamingo, large leaf, mini leaf, mini pineapple, and mini flower.

Nurse Color Palette and Icing Formulas

Use this icing color palette and the formulas to make icing for your next nurse or doctor appreciation cookie project!! 

I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas.


If you're not sure what the "parts" mean, or how to use these formulas, check out THIS POST for detailed step-by-step photos!

When I make different colors with the same ratios (like the two pink colors above), I usually make the darkest color first. Then I add some of the darker colored icing into a bowl of fresh white icing to make a lighter version of the same icing.

When I make very light or pale icing colors, I mix the food coloring into a very small amount of icing (2 tablespoons) first and then use that saturated icing to color the rest of my icing. (Check out THIS POST for details.)

I went to Target today.

Because I wanted to. Is that a crime?!

Because it snowed yesterday. And it's cold. And I'm afraid of what happens when winter comes.

I just wanted to go stand in the Halloween aisles. I wanted to look at the bright colors and very very large bags of sugary goodness. I had no intention of actually buying anything. (That's a complete lie. I fully knew I would end up buying yet another bag of holiday M&Ms.) (Please don't judge me.) (Okay, you can a little bit judge me for the lie...but not my love of chocolate.)

I've never been a fan of mini cookies. Until I met this set of Sweet Sugarbelle Mini Shapeshifters. And then I fell absolutely, madly, head-over-heels in LOVE with minis. Every time I open that box...or bag...or tin... or whatever storage receptacle they are currently hiding in... (I can NOT make up my mind!!! Suggestions welcome! 😂😂😂) ... I instantly feel inspired and absolutely NEED to make one million cookies immediately.

Soooo... my youngest child is in school all day. That happened. FOR REAL. I didn't even wake up from this dream and find that she was still 2 years old and trying to cut my hair "like a princess" while I was sleeping. IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!

And weirdly... so sad at the same time. I feel like I never see her anymore! After years of having a little buddy - she's got HER OWN FRIENDS NOW?! WHAT?! She drew a picture of herself sitting in a chair at school and it kind of broke my heart just a little bit. You know... in a way that only a trip to Target can fix.
