These little swirly roses are a twist on Sugarbelle's Simple Swirl Rose. As I was recreating her sweet little flowers, I made a mistake. A mistake that I loved!
Sugarbelle's Simple Swirl Roses are a view of a rose from above the blossom, with the swirl centralized. I offset my swirl so that you view the rose from the side of the blossom. That sounds kinda confusing. Let me show you!
I received many wonderful inquiries as to how I created the seashells for this "Sweets from the Sea" collection. Check out my tutorial on the starfish here.
Do you know that the real-life versions of these beauties are called "Sugar Starfish"?! Honest! After studying many starfish pictures, I thought that I would try to recreate the texture with royal icing and nonpareils.
Let me show you how I made them!
Sanding Sugars. Those tiny, sweet crystals that can add a little extra sparkle and depth to cookies. Like many other cookiers, I have a slight addiction to sanding sugars and sprinkles. It doesn't take long to amass a generous collection of these miniature gems.
I'm Amy. Wife, Mom, former science teacher- and now full time cookie baker on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Pull up a chair and we'll create! I'll bring the coffee- maybe Mike (The Cookie Widower) will make it for us.
