I've scoured through my hundreds of cookie cutters and have selected 13 (a baker's dozen) to send to one lucky winner along with this stunning and whimsical cookie book called "DECORATING COOKIES PARTY" by my friend, Bridget Edwards.
I've planned this timely giveaway with you, my readers in mind, and just in time for holiday baking!
I've not done many cookbook/book reviews but when I was approached to do this one, I jumped at the chance. Since I'm a retired cookie designer/decorator, I feel an incredible attachment to the art of cookie decorating and design.
Bridget, and her wonderful second book "Decorating Cookies Party
" does an incredible job of explaining technique and showing step-by-step photo tutorials so that even the most novice of cookie decorators can feel comfortable and empowered to create beautiful works of cookie art.
From cookie decorating basics:
To easy to follow techniques and tips:
Bridget's got you covered with 10 celebratory cookie themes and 50 adorable designs:
Within this book, Bridget also shares four delicious cookie dough recipes (Vanilla Almond, Mocha, Brown Sugar and Spice and Pink Lemonade) along with one gluten free recipe for Chocolate Cut-Out Cookies.
When I say Bridget's got you covered, I truly mean it! She also shares her recipe for Royal Icing (page 29) so you'll have everything you'll need to get started baking, and decorating fun and whimsical cookies this holiday season, and beyond!
Here are just a few examples of the cookies, themes and instructions you'll find inside:
And, if all that's not enough, Bridget shares with you how to make and use the templates she used on the exact cookies in this book so you can totally duplicate her designs, and her success!
As I mentioned earlier, I'm super excited to be adding 13 (a baker's dozen) of my own personal cookie cutter collection to this giveaway. I've tailored them directly to holidays throughout the year so you'll be all set for cookie and ideas from January through December.
Enter here for your chance to win: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED ~
CONGRATULATIONS TO HEATHER LYNN BABCOCK!
Good luck and happy decorating everybody!
Until we bake again,
