I know everyone wants me to jump right into the cookie designs but we still need to get one more fundamental down before we do: outlining and flooding.
Whenever we post cookie photos on our social media, without fail someone will comment they can’t flood a cookie with royal icing. I am nowhere near an expert on this. I’m more of a talented novice I would say. Have you seen some of those cookie artists on social media? Every time I think I made a good looking cookie, I see one of them and think I have a lot to learn. Those men and women are super impressive. Like honestly, how do they do it?
I might not be able to teach you how to make a magic eye puzzle, remember those?, on a cookie, but I can teach you how to flood one.
It’s the start of our Mickey Valentine’s cookie series. Way too often we see recipes with a hundred ingredients, and that take hours to make. Boo on that.
I thought it would be fun to create a series of different cookies using one cookie and two colors. Simple. Things don’t have to be complicated to be delicious. It’s a nice idea to make 8 different kinds of cookies with 16 different colors but people are busy and don’t have time for that. “I know you are 3 little Cindy, and can’t feed yourself, but momma has to shape cupids out of gumdrops and cherries for your class party tomorrow.” One cookie and two frostings sound pretty great. Especially if it’s a Disney Cookie.

Hi hungry bakers!
Whenever I think of Disneyland I instantly get a smile on my face. This incredibly warm wave of happiness rushes over me. You know the feeling I’m talking about. I imagine strolling down Mainstreet U.S.A, one hand holding my husband’s hand, and the other holding a Mickey Ice Cream Bar. Goodness, I love those things.
Pharrell Williams said “clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth,” and that’s exactly what I feel like when I’m there. Truthfully, honestly, and happy.

Hi Beautiful Bakers!
I have to admit I made these cookies as a late night snack. I didn’t really think much about them. It was just one of those situations where I looked for a recipe I had all the ingredients for. I later heard three separate people say they were the best cookies they have ever had. They also requested when we make chocolate chip cookies in the future, we make these ones.

Hello Bluetiful bakers… see what I did that?
So I was looking for something fun and quick to make. Something I already had the ingredients for and would be easy to make.
I headed over to the Disney Family website and found these super cute little blue wisp cookies. The picture looked adorable and I love meringue.
Hello happy bakers!
Today we start our little series about how to figure out why your cookies didn’t turn out the way the picture showed.
Sometimes you think you followed the recipe perfectly and they still don’t turn out. Let’s look at the first three things that can happen to the cookies you tried to make last night.
