Besides gorgeous and informative cookie decorating books there are so many fantastic on-line places you can learn about decorating cookies with icing. Everyone’s got their own style and take on how they do things; you can learn something new from everyone!
There’s University of Cookie (Check out all the cookie professors such as TidyMom and Cookies and Cups there!), and these talented ladies; Bake at 350, CakeJournal, I Am Baker, SweetSugarBelle and The Decorated Cookie, who have been so kind as to guest post or be interviewed on Sweetopia and all of whom are extremely talented at their craft!
Early last week I posed a question to you all on facebook asking where more of your favorite on-line places to learn about decorating cookies with icing were. The results are below. Many of you may have found these talented people already, but juuuust in case you haven’t, here they are, sharing one of their favorite cookie decorating tips as well!
1. Glory of Glorious Treats – My blog is the place I enjoy sharing my sweet and crafty projects. I love baking, party planning, crafts and photography and love having a place to share my creative passions.
One my favorite tips to offer cookie decorators is to take the time to prepare a clean and organized work area. If you make sure to set up all of your supplies… toothpicks, paper towels, a moist dish cloth, a tray for your decorated cookies… you will be able to work efficiently and be able to enjoy your decorating time without interruptions (I can’t help you with interruptions from children!).
A huge thank you to the talented cookie decorators for being here and for sharing their photos and favorite tips! It’s much appreciated!
It’s no secret that I love making (and eating), sweets of all kinds, but decorating cookies has a special place in my heart. There’s something so satisfying about creating little works of sugar art, seeing the finished cookies and then giving them away! (The best part next to decorating).
I hope you enjoy learning and making decorated cookies as much as I do, and if you haven’t tried, I encourage you to try it by learning from this and other sites! You never know, you might find a new obsession passion! 😉

Hey Sweetopia : )

Thank you for putting together this great post.
“seeing the finished cookies and then giving them away! (The best part next to decorating)” – you are right, just want to add I love to see people reaction. That makes me so happy 😉
Marian, thanks for posting these resources! I was immediately taken with Cookie Crazie’s picture – I’ve been giving serious thought to revamping my baking storage because I have stuff everywhere. Would love to see a column about it if you have tips, or a guest post from Cookie Crazie (just because she looks so organized).
Thanks for posting this. I already follow four of the women you’ve listed, and will certainly be following the other two! They have great advice. Love their pictures. 🙂
Wow – thanks for posting all of these sites! I already follow a few but it’s always nice to have more resources!
Wow, a cookiedecoratingpalooza of info! Thanks so much for pulling it all together in one place.
Great post! Thanks so much
Don’t you love how one very talented woman (YOU!) is so open to other ideas from other “very talented women!” I chuckled when Karen said her web site was a jumping off point…I’ve been there and jumped myself…thanks to all of the talented women who continue to inspire us royal icing addicts….
Thank you so much! Great post!
