Citing partial pressure from her mother, Ali began blogging back in December of 2009. At that time her daughter was about to turn one and every Mom knows how busy the days can get when there’s a baby in the house! Nonetheless, Ali kept up with her blog posts and the internet came to know the baking and decorating talents of one amazing cookie decorator. Not to mention that they were treated to some wonderfully charming posts of Ali’s beautiful daughter over the past two years. From time to time Ali will share one of her non-sweet recipes with us and a visit back to her Guacamole post or her Spicey Noodle Stir Fry are well worth the trip. Ali is as adept at adding a touch of whimsy to her decorated cookies as she is adding a touch of sparkling majesty and she finds inspiration for her designs anywhere from her daughter’s clothing to movies. She is always eager to attempt new decorating techniques and her exquisite brushed embroidery cookies are evidence of what a quick study she is. Her cookie artistry and decorating techniques can be found at Ali Bee’s Bake Shop and on her Facebook page. I’m delighted that Ali is here today sharing her recipe and story with us.

I have been fortunate in my life to not know anyone personally affected by cancer. Though I don’t have any personal experience to share, I am aware of the pain it can cause families and the devastation it can leave behind. I thank the Lord daily for my fortune. It saddens me to know that out there somewhere a woman is battling with her own body.
Keep up the fight ladies
So today, in honor and memory of those waging war against cancer we’re going to make cookies. Cookies make everything a little easier to swallow. :)
For the recipes I used for this project I am going to refer you to:
My favorite sugar cookie recipe: Sweetopia’s Sugar Cookie
My favorite royal icing recipe: Antonia74′s Royal Icing
Print out of a silhouette you would like to use
Oval cutters (2 sizes)
The day before:
1. Tape your silhouette images on to a cookie sheet. Then tape wax paper or parchment paper on top of the silhouettes. Make sure you can see through the parchment paper. You will be tracing the images underneath.
