At long last, this week I’m showing how to make all the teeny edible embellishments that decked out my “Live Sweetly” bakery-themed cookies posted two weeks ago! I’ve got mini French breads modeled with royal icing “putty”; piped royal icing pies, macarons, Challah breads, and croissants; fondant rolling pins; and more! Basically, there’s lots of sweetness headed your way, so please view on! All links below!

Love these embellishments, Julia @Julia M. Usher!! They're just adorable, super creative and perfect for adding dimension, interest and variety to any cookie .

Thank you once again for making these videos for us little cookiers!! The are incredibly informative and help to make the designs stand out above the crowd ❤️.

Thanks so much, Carol. You are always SO sweet!

Thank you so much for this Julia!  I saved this until I had enough time to properly enjoy it.  I am fascinated by this royal icing "putty".  I re-watched your video on Edible Trees and Rocks for the castle in which you also use the putty.  Is this something you plan on using more often?  Can it be substituted  for gumpaste?  I'm excited to experiment.  Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Great! Glad it was enjoyable. Royal icing "putty" is a great way to use up leftover icing, but it doesn't have the elasticity of fondant or gumpaste, and big blobs of it can misshape a bit upon drying (i.e., shrink differentially and get small dents in it). So, for now, I find it best for rough modeling, but who knows where I might take it!
