You know, I really don't like royal icing cookies either, but those design are perfect! I'd have to eat one just for the 4th of july weekend ;)xo katie elizabethohheyylife.blogspot.com
you're like on blog-FIRE right now. um, are you trying to win an award for having the greatest # of consecutive stellar, creative and amazing posts ever? cause if so, i'd vote for you. whew. i can't keep up with all your greatness! i want to try it all.
I don't know how you are able to get your kids to behave for 2 straight hours while making these. I'd have icing on the ceiling, kids in time out, and me on the couch with a glass of wine while the cookies sat half way finished on the counter.
Oh my gosh, those are amazing!
gorgeous. you go girl!
leslie is right. you are smokin' hot with these posts!these look delightful-your kiddos are so darn cute. i think my fave part of the post though is the stripey paper straw. *wink*Xo
Such beautiful cookies! Almost too pretty to eat. Love the tutorial, your photos are great.
those cookies are amazing...almost two pretty to eat! cant wait to see you at blog sugar!
Thanks so much for the kind words :) Let me add by the way that these cookies are easy if you've worked with royal icing before. if not, then perhaps practice a bit before attempting these, and then give it a go. And Leslie, holidays inspire me :) XOXO
Those cookies turned out gorgeous! And how simple? Wow! Definitely making these with the kids this summer.
We have a huge 4th of July BBQ and I'm totally making these cookies! Thank you! I do this same technique with nail polish and water on my nails! It's not so easy, haha. I'm hoping the frosted cookies will be easier to do. I'm also going to make this fun cake, if you haven't seen it yet, here is a link. the website has a lot of fun treats. http://glorioustreats.blogspot.com/2011/06/4th-of-july-flag-cake.htmlHappy Fourth!
I gave you an award! Visit my blog to see :)xo katie elizabethohheyylife.blogspot.com

I just stumbled onto your blog and should really go to sleep, but can't stop reading your older posts. They are inspiring! So inspiring that I am calculating if I have enough time to make these cookies for a picnic tomorrow. I also do not think your royal icing tutorial was too long. I really appreciated the details and helpful tips :) Thanks for the motivation!
How amazing! I admit I totally did not believe Martha when she said they were easy. :) Thanks for the tutorial!
