Adventures of an Amateur Cookie Decorator

          This is my attempt at starting a blog.  I started a new hobby obsession of baking and decorating cookies.  I have never done this before and I'm not good at it.....yet.  I am hoping that I eventually will be good great amazing at decorating cookies.  I thought it would be neat to see how I started out and then how I gradually got better.  Or it's going to show how I never got good enough and gave up!  I'm hoping for the former. 

          Why do a blog?  I have spent a few many hours watching tutorials online and reading amazing cookie decorator blogs.  Their cookies are edible, perfect pieces of art.  They have been super helpful by posting recipes and pictures.  I haven't found a lot of blogs from "amateur" cookie decorators that show their beginnings.  Hopefully, this blog will be helpful for others who are wanting to try out cookie decorating.  I also thought having a blog would help me from not giving up.    

          My challenge: To bake and decorate at least one batch of cookies a month.  These cookies will probably always remain just for family and friends but maybe a huge maybe I will get good enough to sell them.

Get ready to see pictures of cookies and hear about mishaps from someone who has no idea how to decorate cookies!

  1. Love, love, love this! As a beginner myself, I am thrilled to see that someone else is learning as well, and willing to share the good and the bad. Have fun with both the blog and with the cookie decorating. I will be following you.
