I have a lot of cookie ideas in my head and when I get a request for a certain theme the creative wheels start spinning in my head.
First, I sketch out an idea by tracing the cutter shapes on plain white card stock. Then I get to work with my crayons and colored pencils. I used to love to color when I was a kid! I even strolled though the Back to School aisle at Target for new pastel crayons in yummy colors.
Once I decide on my designs it’s a lot easier to plan out icing colors by looking at my drawings.
