A Great Tutorial On Decorating Sugar Cookies!

I have had quite a few people ask me questions about how I decorate my sugar cookies.  In my head making my own tutorial sounds like a fantastic idea.  In my reality, that is never gonna happen. I am learning that I can not do everything!! I am also in awe of the amazing resources that are out there in the blog world and I would love to share some of my favorites with you.

I could spend hours pouring over Marian's sweet photos and amazing creations. She is Canadian and oh so talented, creative and productive!

Marian has also made some really helpful tutorials.  On the left hand sidebar of her blog she has a button for tutorials.  How great is that?!?!?  Today I present to you her tutorial on "How To Decorate Sugar Cookies With Royal Icing"

I agree with all of her tips and this tutorial is basically exactly what I would say, had I the time and gumption to make my own tutorial:)  She mentions Antonia 74's icing recipe and this is the one that I use.  Love it.  SO GREAT!

Are you convinced?  She's good, reeal good.
You can be too!
All it takes is a few helpful tips and a lot of practice!
