I'm Michelle and I'm a 27 year old single mother of a beautiful 2 year old boy. The first time I decorated cookies was when I was pregnant. I made Christmas tree cookies for my family as a sort of "thank you" for supporting me and my decision to raise a child on my own. I used a very basic royal icing recipe and spread it on the cookies using a butter knife. I was wondering if there was an easier, neater way to decorate cookies so I googled it and stumbled up The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle blog. I was amazed. I wanted to be able to create cookies as beautiful as hers and so I invested in some tools and realized that this was my calling. I love what I do and I owe that to my son, my family, and to all of the talented cookie artists that have inspired me along the way.
