Book Love // Decorating Cookies Party by Bridget Edwards

Learn how to decorate sugar cookies like a pro!

Remember when I told you that I would be sharing lots of my favorite new books? Well I’m back here with #2! I sort of can’t get over how talented my friends are, really! Decorating Cookies Party is book number 2 for my sweet friend Bridget of Bake at 350! A couple of years ago, I shared her first book with y’all and it’s still sitting in my kitchen for me to reference (which I do a LOT). Well, she’s BACK! This book is even more down our alley because it’s PARTY-themed! I know, I died too. It’s totally full of amazing party-inspired cookies with easy-to-follow instructions!

Decorating Cookies; Party by Bridget Edwards

I just had to highlight the party number cookies! How perfect are these for milestone birthdays (or any year!), New Year’s Eve (make 2015) or any special number! This would be a fun birthday party activity, favor treat, or addition to a dessert table. The possibilities are endless for enjoying these sweet decorated cookies.

Check out one of the sweet pages in the book…and you have to note those cake stand cookies – oh my WORD!
