Christmas and some cookies

Okay… finally, the post from last weekend. My camera never did wake up by the way. But I did manage to get all the photos off using a friend’s card reader. Yay! Unfortunately, no built in card readers on my printer or computer… Boo!

And, I would have posted this last night, but I spent the evening at Pioneer Woman’s book signing in Atlanta. Fun! Fun! More on that soon. Thankfully, I did have a working camera with me for that. A brand new Canon Digital Rebel XSi that I borrowed. It’s nice having generous friends. But, I kinda wish I hadn’t started using it. I might not be able to give it back. Bigger screen, More megapixels. And I’ve convinced myself the photo quality is far superior. It is. I know it is. Maybe my camera will be unfixable. Is that a word?

Anyway, here’s the goods or goodies from last weekend.

It’s coming up on Christmas, so I wanted to make some decorated sugar cookies. But I didn’t really want to make traditional Christmas shapes. So instead, I used a cute little cupcake cutter I recently bought. I also went with a less than traditional color scheme and chocolate sugar cookies to help make the colors pop.


I love sugar cookies. Too bad I love them more than they love me. I’m still trying to perfect my piping. I will not give up. I will have non-lumpy lines one day.


These were two of the better ones.


These … not so much. But squint and they’ll look better.

Snowflake Sprinkles

See …… Okay, I’m kidding. I kid. These are the good ones. Well, the better ones anyway.


It helps to plan ahead when you work with royal icing. Draw out the colors you want for borders and the colors you want to fill with in advance.


The cookie recipe is from the book, Cookie Craft. Get a copy if you have any desire to learn how to make these kind of decorated cookies. It’s jam-packed with tips and tricks.

Or maybe you’ll win this.

Cookie Stuff

Yes, the original Cookie Craft came out with a mini Cookie Craft Christmas book.

Christmas Craft

Also with recipes, ideas, and tips. It’s very cute. And small, which you know I like.

Cupcake Cookie Cutters

You’ll also get this cute 2-piece cupcake cookie cutter set. Love it!

Cupcake Stencils

And some cupcake stencils. You can use these on cookies, too.

Cake Tester

A cupcake-shaped cake tester. This totally unnecessary utensil was too cute to pass up.

Mini Cupcake Spatulas

And so were these mini spatulas. I bought all the goodies (except for the cookie book I picked up at the bookstore) from Crate & Barrel if you want to look them up. I like finding cute things. Hope you like them, too.


And it all comes stuffed in a sparkly stocking.

  1. I want my dog to be healthy. She just finished her last chemo treatment today.

  2. I would LOVE a spa package. That’s something I may never have a chance to do and I wouldn’t get it for myself so we’ll see. It would be nice to be spoiled.

  3. I would love to find a job that is the best for me and my family.

  4. What I want for Christmas? I want for this statement to be true – “The way to a man’s heart is his stomach.” I can bake… so will that put a ring on my finger this Christmas??? Haha!

  39. I’d love to win this contest! :)

    I’d also love to be blessed with a baby :)

  40. I’m getting everything I want for christmas this year…my fiance, who is currently serving in the United States Navy will be by my side. I couldn’t ask for a better gift!

    My heart goes out to those who are unable to be with their loved ones this holiday season. Please keep our soldiers and sailors as well as their families in your thoughts this holiday season.

    P.S. Love the cookies…do they ship well?

  41. What I want for Christmas is to spend time with my Fiancee and family!

  42. I want a trip to the UK with one of my friends! However, that seems unlikely, so I will be content with a few new books, some CDs, and time spent with friends and family. :)

  43. I want a cushion cut ring I have been eyeing up for some time ;-)

  44. Some good weather and lots of time with family and friends!

  45. I desperately want a heat embosser…saw a demo at Paper Source with rubber stamps and it sparked (ha ha!) a desire in me to make stationery for all my friends. :-) Happy holidays!

  46. I want a new bedroom set! I’m a newly wed and we still sleep on the furniture I’ve had since 6th grade…

  48. For Christmas, I want a SAFE road trip and fun times with my in-laws, who live 17 hours away!

  49. I want my hubby home from Iraq… But I’d settle for a video chat for him to see the kids (3 under the age of 6) on Christmas morning. Hopefully the logistics work out… But if not, I’ll still get to hug him in January- maybe a delayed Christmas present, yes?


  50. I want an egg cooker – really! A set of interchangeable circular knitting needles, and a subscription to an art magazine I love. Plus a peaceful, joyful holiday with my family.

  51. I want to be able to enjoy christmas with our children in the wonderment of santa and lots of fresh seafood and good friends!

  52. I think that cupcakes are the greatest thing ever invented and would love to get this stocking for Christmas. Another thing that I would like for Christmas is to stay up late giggling with my younger sister who is going to be home from the Peace Corps for a few weeks :)

  53. I want a white Christmas this year! and lots of fun new cake decorating goodies. I just finished two grueling years of nursing school, so now I am ready to take on a fun new hobby!

  54. I want this for christmas…sooo bad I can hardly stand it! Me and my “crafty-baker” friend exchange gifts every Christmas & I’m doing a gingerbread cupcake theme…how perfect would this be!!! You always know how to read my mind Bakerella!

  55. Looking forward to having my two boys home, who have been serving in Iraq.

  56. Oh that set is far too cute for its own good – especially packaged in a sparkleriffic stocking! This year for Christmas, I am hoping to have enough money to fly to Nashville and spend the week with my boyfriend’s family, have enough time to paint everyone a handmade gift, and enough love to fill the entire house 5 times over. That last one shouldn’t be a problem!

    GREAT job on the cookies!

  118. I want a Condo/home. For the last 4months my ‘lil family of 3 has been living with my parents. We’ve been trying so hard to purchase a condo and one thing after another keeps coming up. I could really use some good news. All I really want for Christmas is my own place with my ‘lil family.

  123. I want a relaxing Christmas with my family and a pair of those Reebok butt shaper shoes for working off all those delicious holiday calories!

  124. I wish I could go home and see my family for Christmas. I’ve always taken it for granted that I would be close to them. Now, as I’ve moved away I’ve learned to cherish the holiday seasons we do have together.

  125. Time with family and good food!

  126. I want my family to be together. And I would LOVE a new car, but I know that’s not happening.

  127. What I really want is my husband to walk in the door from Iraq and surprise our daughters and I. However I am a realistic girl and I would take a new pair of Fat Baby boots and a blingy belt.

  128. I too want time with family, but I’d settle for an enamel dutch oven.

  129. i dont celebrate christmas, but if i did, i’d want MONEY!
    as would every college student, lol.

  130. I just want people to be happy. …perhaps I want to be a baked goods tester for the holidays. lol.

  131. I really don’t need anything this year since I just got married and we got some wonderful household items for the wedding. Truth be told, I really like the “Momofuku” cook book that came out recently.

  132. I REALLY want a salad spinner.

  133. I want to see family!

  134. I keep ruining my Christmas gifts! My boyfriend and I already exchanged gifts, so no surprise there. My mom and I talked about where to get the best deal on the GPS I asked for, so again, nothing surprising. Yesterday, my car died, and my mom had to ruin the surprise that she bought me a CAA/AAA membership for Christmas– and I got to use it! In summary, I think what I’d like for Christmas, big or small, is some kind of pleasant surprise!

  135. For Christmas I would love a Great Pyrenees puppy.

  136. i looooove sugar cookies and i’m having fun decorating them. i’ve always loved baking so i’ll bake goodies for christmas. :)

  137. Peace! While I wouldn’t mind world peace, all I would like this year is peace in my family, marriage, home, and all around me. Life has gotten way too hectic and a little peace would do us all some good.

  138. all i want is to be able to spend the day with the people who mean the most to me. i’m not sure that will happen, but i can wish!

  139. For the holiday (not Chirstmas) I really want a vacation but since I just started a new job…it doesn’t seem possible.

  140. Bakerella – Love you! I would like to have more energy and time for Christmas. I would like to have little boys that listen when I speak and follow directions the first time I ask them to do something. :) And realistically, I would really love a Kindle!

  141. These are just adorable…. I want a set of fancy knitting needles for Xmas.

  142. I really want an upgraded camera – I have a rebel right now and I’ve been drooling over the higher grade cameras for the past month or so :(

  143. I want to… spend the best holiday season ever with my family before I go off to college next year.

  144. I want everyone to find genuine happiness and love… no matter how small or seemingly insignificant that way may be.

    I find this in every bite of a frosted cupcake or cookie :) Mmmmmm…

    Merry Christmas!

  145. Fun, fun, fun! I have been saying all along that I wanted nothing… etc, etc…. but I always get caught up in the season and ending up wanting all sorts of random stuff. Like hair turbans for when you get out of the shower. I can’t live without that, RIGHT??

  146. I just want a happy, healthy family Christmas and to be able to share my blessings with others.

  147. I want to enjoy each moment with my husband and little girl. This is the first year we don’t have family around but I am looking forward to some hubby and daughter time.

  148. I would LOVE a camera like you got. Honestly, I’ve been looking at them for about a year but other things keep coming up and being a bigger priority. I’ve asked for an ipod touch so I can get busy with some other personal inititatives. You know, health and fitness stuff.

  149. Oh! Cookie Craft Christmas!! Happy dances all around!

  150. For me, I would like some new pillows. I already got enough stuff this year, pillows will do just fine :-)

  151. I really want a red kitchen aid stand mixer for christmas and i would love to receive a christmas stocking from you too Bakerella! :)

  152. A photography book and some peace and quiet for me to read it and actually learn something :-)

    Simple and cheap!

    Happy holidays!

  153. A pony. Okay, maybe not. If I may be so bold as to dream, an apartment full of new furniture! Or maybe just a food processor. Or one of those cookies.

  154. Running shoes. That’s what I need for Christmas to counteract my addiction to your blog. ;)

  155. I want a vacuum. I know..not fun…but I have two kids and a dog and it is a must! This would be so fun to win! My two year old loves to bake with me.

    Merry Christmas!

  156. What a wonderful post!! I LOVE those cupcake cookies. I too have been wanting, wishing, hoping and praying for a Digital SLR camera. Look at how awesome those pictures turned out!! I am told that I can get one next year.. but I want one now!! LOL

  157. Honestly? To win the lottery lol. Not even a million but just enough to pay off all my debt.

  158. So cute!!!

  159. I would like for some peace, not only for the world, but for my family. We’ve had a very rough year.

  160. All I want for Christmas is you!? Oh wait, that was Mariah. My bad.

    Seriously though, I just want some time away from schoolwork to spend with my family and friends.

  161. I am hoping to sell my house and get a bigger SOON! oh AND those cupcake cutters!

    Hope you have a great Christmas!

  162. I asked Santa for a baby. We have been trying for 2 years and hoping for some good news soon

  163. Your photos are always amazing !
    I hope you will have that camera!

  164. I want my family to be healthy and happy…what else do I need:)

  165. i want to get into the school i applied to! (and a macbook pro)

  166. I want so many things…where to start…let’s just give you one off my list…a nice family picture this year with my whole family for the first time in years!

  167. I want to be able to pay for the hospital bill for the upcoming birth of my baby! No maternity insurance :(

  168. I would love to get a new bag for Christmas. My school books have destroyed the one I’m currently using.

  169. I want to see the sparkly smiles on my kiddies faces when they see Santa visited while they slept. I want to see my family smile when they open the cookie treats i baked them and most of all i want to remember to be greatful for all we have :)

  170. I am hoping for a new mobile as mine is acting up lately! Also a Kitten (not that I am going to get one seeing as I have 3 cats already!) and while I’m at some cupcake cookie cutters (like the ones you are giving away!). I LOVE cooking so maybe another recipe book or some cute utensils!

  171. I would like skinny thighs please!

  172. I already got what I wanted most… my husband was able to retire from the Army last month and now we are NOT looking down the throat of another deployment!

    but what I need for Christmas now is a job.

    Jen VG

  173. I want a food processor!! :) But I’d settle for your goodies!!:)

  174. I just got a new car, so my Christmas is set! However, I wouldn’t say no to some kitchen toys and a new pair of Danskos!

  175. This Christmas, I want to spend lots of time with family and friends, which I unfortunately haven’t been able to do because of college applications and just overall senior year craziness.
    I’d also like a nice, warm jacket for winter…and a puppy (which probably isn’t going to happen, but I’ve been wishing for one since I was young!).
    I hope I don’t sound too needy.
    Also, I absolutely LOVE those cookies!

  176. My husband is an artist and I’ve asked him to make me silhouettes of our three kids to hang on our wall. You’d think having an artist for a husband that I’d have a lot of cool homemade things around the house- but it’s really more like the shoemakers kids that go without shoes ( :

  177. I am hoping for a homemade cold frame built by my dad!

  178. It was so great meeting you last night (an early Christmas present if you will). I am forever grateful for my brave husband to seek you out. For Christmas this year I wish for all of my siblings to be under one roof (me here in Georgia- brother in Idaho and Washington, sisters in Utah, Arizona, and California and parents in Cali). But I am secretly hoping for the new Kitchen Aid stand mixer with the clear glass bowl. Who cares if I already have a Kitchen Aid- no I can mix two things at once sans hands. :)

  179. I want someone to pay off my longarm machine so I can stop worrying about the bill.

  180. Cute, cute sugar cookies! Worth the wait!!! Ummm…for Christmas this year, I would like to relax with family and friends and love and laugh…also a new pair of UGG’s would be nice!

  181. i want to get something really surprising that i couldn’t even dream up right now :)

  182. I want some ultrasound pictures! I need some physical evidence that this baby exists and I’m not all tired and crabby for no reason. :)

  183. Work for my husband, a finished kitchen, a Merry Christmas!

  184. I would really like a present from Santa. Usually I have to buy a coupla things to go along with the presents for Dad and Maks so it looks like Santa is real. I’ve been laying on the hints kinda thick. I think it might work.

  185. All I really want is for both of my kids to be happy and healthy. Last year my 4 year old daughter came down with the stomach flu at 11:00pm on Christmas Eve. It was so sad. She was so upset that she could not join in on all the fun.

  186. I would like a time machine for Christmas.

  187. So, I’ll tell you what I want (what I really really want)…

    Is that song in your head now? :-)

    I really want a cool new phone for Christmas. I’ve coveted the iPhone for ages, so we’ll see if Santa comes through.

    I heard you were in Atlanta at PW’s book signing! I was there too…and your cookbook cake pops were ridiculously adorable.

  188. I want to spend some quality time with my family. Also, the Pioneer Woman’s book or the Cake Wrecks book would be nice too!

  189. I love the sugar cookies! I want to make lots of cookies this Christmas and have a nice relaxing holiday break with my husband, puppy & family :)

  190. I have a few cookbooks on my Christmas list, but mainly I want my family home with us.

  191. I would LOVE to have one of those cameras that you use Bakerella!! I have made just about every one of your cake pops! I take them in to work and the gals think I’m so artistic!! I do give you the credit though and several have attempted them. We all love the ideas you come up with. Now…if I just had a camera to take the pictures and share them!! PLUS…I will have my 1st grandson in April!! Need to take pictures of him too!!

    Merry Christmas!!

  192. What do I want for Christmas? Ummm… it would be great to get our house sold, but since Santa can’t fit that in a stocking, I think I will just wish for some chocolate. :)

  193. I want a good christmas for my kids…

    peace on earth, good will toward men….

    and a pony.

  194. Honestly, all I ever wish is for good things to happen. So far, so good! :]

  195. Well I am glad you found a way to get your photos off your camera! Those cookies are adorable and well worth the wait :)

    Hope you get everything you wish for!!

    My Christmas list includes a sewing machine, a cherry print cardigan, and well, now, those cupcake cookie cutters :)

  196. I have a big wish – I am hoping for a Kitchenaid stand mixer. I have always wanted one…..hope this is the year!

  197. Really, I just want a Roomba! It would make my life SO much easier!

  198. A happy, healthy baby boy. He is due to be here anytime! And also a very accepting and non jealous 4 year old princess…..that is a big request…

  199. I want to win this contest :)
