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.

I went to a wedding last weekend in a garden. It was beautiful. The flowers were beautiful. The bride was gorgeous. And my children...well...to be perfectly honest...my children we're actually unbelievably amazing. That NEVER happens. Especially at the end of a summer vacation in which they are squished together because we are remodeling forever and it will never ever be done for a hundred years. (Or so it would seem.)

You guys.

Christmas in July Sugar Cookie Celebration

Learn how to make some tropical Santa decorated sugar cookies with this royal icing cookie decorating tutorial!!  

If blogs had Christmas specials...this would be it. It would start with a dark, snowy night that cuts inside to a warm kitchen where a smartly dressed female actor (who is clearly just pretending to be me...because let's be honest, I've never been smartly dressed in my life...) is patiently and sweetly decorating Christmas cookies with her adorably well-behaved children. (More creative license...you can be sure of that. 😂😂)

One of those sweet little angel faces looks up and asks, "Mommy, was our coat closet always full of cookie cutters?"

The clearly-has-it-all-together-mother-impersonators stares off into the middle distance and says, "Let me tell you a story..."
