Here’s a great way to add a little bling to your princess’s special day. These cookies were simple to make. (The cutter is available with our princess invitation and decor.) The best advice I can give with shaped sugar cookies is:
Make more than you need for the party,
Always chill your dough shapes before baking,
Take them out of the oven just as they are starting to show color,
Always move them immediately to a baking rack, and
Don’t forget to experiment and have fun with the icing.
For the crowns, I used a flooding technique. It takes a little prep, but gives you a great result. I’ll post some tips about flooding cookies tomorrow.
