Hello, hello! Happy (almost) February! These are a little early for Valentine’s day but really are versatile in that they can be made for so many occasions. What set of cookies couldn’t use a floral wreath? 🙂  The swan and dress might be stretching it a bit more, and aren’t even necessarily Valentiney (A made-up word there I think?), but I honestly just loved decorating those shapes, as well as the wreath, and wanted to make them again. This time, I’ve made a video, which I hope you find helpful, especially if you’re new(er) to decorating.

Many thanks to Rosey of Rosey Confectionery Sugar Art, whose work I’ve admired a for quite some time now, for the adorable dress cutter and design. She created such a pretty dress, I didn’t want to change a thing! Also want to share my thanks to Anna of The Sweetest Tiers for her beautiful swan design (cutter bought at How Sweet is That?), Delarose of  Sword’s Sugars, for the bow cookie inspiration, and to LilaLoa for sharing Delarose’s tutorial on her site! So pretty!

    Such beautiful cookies! I can’t wait to try the heart. Thank you so much for all the work you put into your videos. They bring such joy. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve watched your Christmas cookie video. Makes me so happy! ❤️

    I hope this is ok. Here are some links to tiny bird cutters. I’ve not purchased from this shop before, but so many other cookiers have and they all rave. Her gingerbread houses are gorgeous.
