The Perfect Christmas Sugar Cookies

 

 

Welcome to Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas Desserts!! I am so glad you’ve come back for more. I started off my 12 days with my Christmas Tree Cake Pops, just to get everyone excited about the possibilities this season brings for baking. If those were a little bit intimidating for you, no worries, I completely understand! So, we’re gonna go back to basics just for a moment.

Thanksgiving has come and gone. We enjoyed the turkey, had our food comas or “naps” as that one uncle calls them. So now that means it’s officially Christmas time, right?

Alright… alright, I’ll at least let you finish your pumpkin pie first… Done? Okay great!

Easy Marshmallow Fondant for Cake Decorating

You might’ve heard, I had a birthday on Tuesday. I’m a whole quarter of a century now! It wouldn’t be a pandemic without a panda cake, so that is exactly what I made for myself.

Actually, the panda cake had nothing to do with the pandemic, I just really love pandas.

I made marshmallow fondant, because in my opinion, marshmallow fondant tastes much better than other fondants and it’s super easy. You literally only need a bag of mini marshmallows, powdered sugar and water. However, it is super sticky, so if you don’t want it to stick to your hands or your counter top, I would also recommend having some Crisco on hand.

2020 has been a big bummer so far am I right? One of my favorite things is going to restaurants, and believe it or not, I haven't been to a restaurant since March 16th, 2020. But my birthday is today, so I decided to get takeout this weekend, for the first time in over 8 months! I went to my two very favorite spots that I have missed dearly!! Keefer Court and My Huong Kitchen. I hope this video makes you want to check them out too!

Thanksgiving Turkey Cake Pops!

Thanksgiving always seems to sneak up on me. After Halloween ends, everyone just skips right to Christmas. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas. But my birthday is in November and then Thanksgiving is the week after. It always just seems like there is so much going on. Well, usually so much going on, maybe not this year. Unlike Christmas, Thanksgiving is a weird holiday for desserts. Of course, you’ve got pumpkin pie, which, don’t get me wrong, is a favorite! And then you’ve got pecan pie… but what else is there really? Oh wait, apple pie... How about something that isn’t a pie? Yes, you could make all of the above pies into bar form, but that’s sort of boring. Since I’m already on this cake pop kick, I decided I’m also going to show you how to make Turkey cake pops!

I had such an amazing response to my Halloween Cake Pops video on YouTube, thank you so much for the over 1.7k views! As you all know, I’m not able to do much acting work right now, so all of your views, likes and subscriptions to my channel help more than you know, to boost my channel.

With that being said, I realized, that for people who have never made a cake pop before, I might’ve jumped the gun just a teensy bit. So, I went back and made a basic cake pop video for beginners. In this video I really break down every step I take, including some of my pro tips and tricks.
