This Saturday is my son's Monster Bash birthday party. I spent Sunday working on some Monster Eyeball sugar cookie favors. I've made lots of sugar cookies before, but typically we just decorate them with powdered sugar and milk frosting and drizzle it all over the top - mostly in tye-dye fashion.
So in order to figure out how to really decorate a cookie I did a google search and came across bee in our bonnet's Basics of Sugar Cookies and Royal Icing. This was a super informative tutorial and I am grateful that they shared their talents! Although I did not use their sugar cookie recipe I did use their royal icing one.
I have decided that sugar cookie decorating is not for me. Too much mess, too much work! But I am glad I gave it a go! They didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped, but they weren't horrible and my son loves them. That's really what matters!
Below are a few of my most visited posts. I hope you enjoy looking around!
I try to host my parties for under $100. I want them to be festive and fun, but not break the bank! Most of my parties include free printables for your use. Please remember, they are for personal use only!
