The benefit to having the worlds best baking blogger, Erica Sweet Tooth, as your best friend–she makes something absurdly delicious for every important occasion (see: my giant s’more birthday cake). But that means, that when something huge happens to her, such as, oh I don’t know, getting engaged, someone has to step up and bake for her. And although homemade sugar cookies with royal icing aren’t a standard cook-tush activity, to celebrate this great couple’s engagement, I made one of Erica’s own recipes, and decorated them in a lovey engagement theme in her signature colors. Congratulations Erica and Ryan!!!
I’m not going to tell you this was a quick and easy process, but it was worth it for the beautiful results. And when you have a friend as amazing and thoughtful as Erica, it’s not hard to take a little extra time to make something special for her.
And here they are, the happy couple. Or maybe not 100% happy, because I’m forcing Ryan to put one of my cookie rings on Erica’s hand while I take a picture.
Check out the recipe I used over on Erica’s blog: http://www.ericasweettooth.com/2009/12/snowflake-sugar-cookies.html. I can’t exactly endorse any health benefits of this recipe, but who cares, it’s a special occasion and we’re going to celebrate with lots of sugar and butter! Congratulations to Erica and Ryan!!
