A Very Special Post–Welcome Callye from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle!

Well today I am so excited to tell you that I have a fabulous guest post from my friend Callye from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.  Wow, that’s weird…friend.  It was only a year ago that I was cyber stalking her wonderful blog as I started thinking about where to take mine, but now I am so happy that I can call her that! 

Last week in the midst of my plague induced couch stay I got a message from Callye asking me how I was feeling and that she wished she could bring me some chicken noodle soup.  So I thought, instead, I’d ask her to do a guest post for me and she emailed me back just as fast and said she was on it!

So without further ado, I give you the fabulously talented Callye!


Hi, I’m Callye from The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle. I am completely crazy about cookie decorating. When Karen asked me to visit, I was so excited when I realized I had the PERFECT idea cookie for her.

Of course, you can adapt these to any letter that you like, but today I am making a K, for KAREN!


I put these cookies together by combining a small circle and a “K” cutter.

To decorate these cookies you will need:

· Red piping and flood icing

· Light blue piping and flood icing

· Stiff green piping icing

· Clear or turquoise sanding sugar {if you don’t have turquoise, learn to make your own HERE}

Begin by using a #3 tip to outline and fill the cherry. Give it a bit to dry before moving on the next step.


Next outline the K with a #2 tip and fill with blue flood icing. At this point let the cookie dry overnight.


The next day add a cherry stem {#2 tip} and a leaf {#67} tip. You can also add little white accent to the cherry if you’d like. Let dry completely and then add apply sanding sugar to the edge of the cookie. If you need a little help applying sanding sugar, click HERE.


I combined mine with a few other designs because I love how they look all mixed together. The cherry/eyelet cookie was inspired by Bake at 350 Bridget’s cherry cookies. They are one of my all-time favorite cookies!


If you love cookies, please hop by my blog, The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle. I love new people and would be glad to have ya!


Thank you Callye for visiting and spreading your awesomeness!  I love the Ks :)
