Our First Post, Edible Glitter

Welcome to our first pin.  Fathers Day Cookies we realize Fathers Day has passed, but what can we say life happens…  Melanie has tried and experimented with a pin about making edible glitter which is posted in the video below.  I (Jenn) am coloring the royal icing in camouflage colors found on The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle.

         I made a huge batch of sugar cookies around Easter.  I planned out the shapes I might be using throughout the year and baked them all up.  I made bunnies for Easter of course, stars for The Fourth of July, and airplanes for Fathers Day.  I stored them in an airtight plastic container in the freezer.  I used the Signature Sugar Cookie Dough, and Royal Icing recipes in, Cookie Swap written by Julia M. Usher.  You can find her at  I also froze my royal icing from Easter.  I felt I had to add some water to thin it out a little as it wasn’t following the ten second rule.  My icing was a little thin as I started to pipe.  I also realized I should have outlined first.

        I kept going with my camo colors.  I did black, moss green, and khaki, and pea green.  Just adding splotches waiting for them to set up and adding more until the space was filled.

               Here is the green sugar (aka glitter) Melanie made in the video.  We wanted to accent the wings of the plane with it.

           This sugar just melted into the royal icing and didn’t really do anything to enhance the cookie. So I used my stand by favorite sanding sugar in black to outline the cookie.

The cookies came out cute, of course they aren’t as beautiful as Sweet Sugarbelle. With this being our first post we realize we have a lot to learn.  So we hope you stick with us and subscribe, and learn from us as we do from you and all of the Pins out there on Pinterest…     As Melanie would say SPIIINNN!!!
