I’m Lovin’ It – Sweet SugarBelle & Cooking Connections

I have someone I’ve been meaning to share for I’m Lovin’ It for months now.

Do you know Callye? aka Sweet SugarBelle

Be prepared to be blown away!

Callye  is one VERY talented lady (not to mention super duper sweet!) ! Her attention to detail is stunning!  She can make a cookie look like a work of art!

Dr Seuss cookiesyes those are REALLY Dr Seuss Cat in the Hat COOKIES

Lephrechan cookiesLots of  Leprechaun cookies

Callye not only shares pictures of her finished cookies……..but some of her tips and tricks.  Many of these Leprechaun cookies were used with modified cookie cutters,  like a snowman, ice cream cone, and  cupcake cookie cutters.

Cookie decorating mess

Don’t be jealous…..this is how Callye spends some of her weekends- elbow deep in dirty icing bottles. Which by the way, is the most DREADFUL part of cookie decorating!


Care to guess how many cookie cutters she has?……….she stopped counting at 900! hehe

That’s right………..Sock Monkey Cookies

It’s too hard to choose a favorite and I just can’t get enough!!  Run over and take a look, she’s so willing to share all of her techniques and secrets……..like this fabulous video tutorial on cookie decorating.   Callye is also a fellow Professor at University of Cookie.

    Those cookies are all amazing. I especially love the sock monkeys with the marbelized frosting on their faces. Too cute! This week I’m sharing a recipe for stuffed turkey breast. It’s really easy, but it feels like a special meal too.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! That is some amazing confection work there. I don’t know how I missed her…I’m not a baker (in fact the only use my frosting tips see is the bathtub puffy paint (which I just linked up) but I just LOVE to admire at the yummy things other people create. That huge stack of cookie cutters is crazy, I want to be Callye’s taste tester!
