Decorating Cookies Party Giveaway!

CATEGORIES: The Scoop

Note:  The winner of our last giveaway has been announced and winner has been contacted.  See if it’s you!

One of our favorite things is when our blogger friends write cookbooks. We know how much work goes into them (and how rewarding it is to hold all that hard work in print!), so  we love helping them celebrate.

If you’re not familiar with Bridget from Bake at 350, you need to become familiar with her ASAP. She is the queen of cookie decorating and adorable desserts (she even once made cookies for Jim Parsons’ 40th birthday. You know, Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory–no biggie.)

Bridget’s second book, Decorating Cookies Party, was recently released and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it!

It’s gorgeous. And she walks you through the whole process, from the master cookie and icing recipes (one of them is even gluten free!) to all sorts of ridiculously adorable cookies, like this one:

  36. Baking and decorating cookies is a must when the 6 grandchildren come to visit……Would absolutely love the cookbook….amazing cookies!

  37. Favorite thing to celebrate is Christmas. I hostess a cookie exchange each year where we each bring a type of cookie to exchange, plus decorate cut-out cookies as a group. Super fun!

  43. I love baking cookies with my beautiful girls. But I love eating them even more, the cookies, easting the cookies, not my kids. lol

  44. I have always been so intimidated by pretty cookies, but it is on my list of things I want to accomplish soon. I am much better at the style of decorating that comes with being a mom to small kids… hurry and try to slap on some frosting and sprinkles before someone ruins it! Celebrating holidays would be so fun with this skill!

  45. Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorites since the extended families get together. Thanks for the opportunity to win items on your blog.

  46. One of my favorite things: every morning, without fail, my little man (4 years old) comes out of his room and says, *Good morning Mom! I love you so much!*
    Melts my heart every time:)

  52. I love birthdays because it is the one day that is solely your own. Other holidays are awesome but they are shared. Its fun on birthdays that you are the star of the show.

  53. I love a lot of things but my favorite day is my anniversary–my husband and I love to spend the day together.
