Hello I have been baking and decorating cookies for about 16 years or so I'd say, after initially becoming inspired by Martha Stewart and her royal icing cookies one Halloween. I am mostly a self-taught decorator, but have taken a cake decorating class or two. I love the creativity of a great cookie project but I am currently really frustrated! I see all of these amazing, stunning, and wonderful cookies that are being made out in the world. I'm hoping to find some great new techniques here !
