I recieved A Cookie to Celebrate: Recipes and Decorating Tips for Everyday Baking and Holidays by Jana Douglass, in exchange for this post. All opinions and my love for cookie decorating remain my own.
A Cookie to Celebrate by Jana Douglass, founder of Jana Lee’s Bake Shop, is a great book for anyone interested in learning the art of decorating cookies.
I love baking and find such joy in decorating cookies. I love trying different sugar cookie recipes and making them beautiful, edible art. During the holidays, my children ask me for advice on how to decorate their cookies.
With this book, I now have someone to ask how I can step up my decorating.
This book provides photograph-filled instructions. It includes 50 recipes, accompanied by beautiful pictures.
I’m in this for the decorating and then she throws in adorable and clever packing ideas. It’s awesome.
I have a lot of cookbooks and A Cookie to Celebrate stands out because of the detailed instructions. Jana Douglass takes her passion for all things cookies and emerges as an instructor teaching the reader how to make gorgeous cookies for any occasion.
The recipes are easy to scale up or down, making them perfect for every day or cookie exchanges and gift giving.
