Decorating Cookies

Decorating Cookies: 60+ Designs for Holidays, Celebrations & Everyday
decorating cookies 600 new Pictures, Images and Photos
Well guys, today is the day.  The official release date for Decorating Cookies.  I know Amazon and Barnes & Noble shipped a bit early, so some of you have it already.  YAY!!!

This book is for you.  You, who have never decorated a cookie.  You, who have attempted and want to try again.  You, who love decorating cookies and are looking for some new ideas.

This book is FOR you and because of you.  All of you...whether you've been reading Bake at 350 for 5 years (ok, that would just be me), or 5 seconds. YOU.

Here's a little peek of the inside: (PS...my pictures do not do the book pics justice.)
I love that visual Table of Contents!  I cannot say enough about the people at Lark Crafts, the publisher.  They pretty much rock.

EVERY project has a step-by-step photo tutorial.  Most of the cookie designs are new, but there are a handful of favorites that we just had to include...most with a new twist.

Oh!  Not only that, but 5 superstar guest cookie makers show one of their specialties!  We're talking: Amanda from i am baker, Callye from The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle, Gail from One Tough Cookie, Meaghan from The Decorated Cookie, and Marian from Sweetopia!!!  I know, right?!?  I'm so thankful for their beautiful contributions!

Shouts-out (shout-outs?) to Amy, Melissa, and Kate for letting me use some of their fabulous artwork for a couple of projects...and to Amanda of Everyday Elements for making yours truly presentable in the author pics.

Wanna see a little behind-the-scenes from our 6-day photoshoot for the step-by-step cookies?
In two of those pictures, you'll see Steve Mann...the book's photographer.  Yay, Steve!!!
