DIY: Valentine Cookies

February 14, 2018

Hello again :)

For this Valentine's Day I wanted to make a special V-Day treat. One that looks complicated to make, but is really so simple.

Here's how I made my new favorite Valentine's Day cookies!

Ingredients:

Cookies-
Two packs of sugar cookie dough (or dough of your choosing)

Icing-
Powdered sugar
Water
Food coloring (optional)

Utensils-
Baking sheet
Wooden stick
Edible cookie decorations (found here)
Cookie cutters

To make the heart shaped cookies, I baked sugar cookies in a cake pan, let them cool, then used cookie cutters to make heart shapes before they hardened. 


I then made the icing and iced the edges.

To ice the cookies, I made a border icing and flood icing. Basically what this means is the border icing is thicker than the middle icing. I took 1 cup of powdered sugar and added three and a half tablespoons of water. I mixed it up, put it in a zip lock baggie, and cut the corner to make an icing bag. I repeated these steps for the middle icing, only I added more water to make it more liquid than the border icing. You can eye it out to see how much extra water you will need to add.

Step 1: Border ice the cookie


Step 2: Spoon middle icing onto cookie


Step 3: Use wooden stick (or anything else that would work) to move icing to cover the whole face of the cookie





Step 4: Scrape any excess icing off of the sides



Step 5: Place edible cookie decoration on top of wet icing




Step 6: Scrape any excess icing off sides, and viola!


Valentine's Day cookies suitable for any love of yours!



I hope you enjoyed this guys! There's still time to make these today if you need a last minute festive treat :)

Enjoy!

Hot Heels for Heart Day


Hot Heels is back and hotter than ever!
I've definitely said that multiple times on my blog, but it's okay because they're all hot!! (One pair is, literally. Read on to see why).

Once again, Happy Valentine's Day to all you beautiful people. I was driving home from babysitting this morning and at the red light, I saw a boy giving a girl a valentine in the car. She looked like she was going to cry, it was adorable! Then I drove down the road and saw a boy walking with a gift bag and a huge teddy bear. Ahhh, love is in the air.

Speaking of, take a look at the heels I'm loving for V-Day 2018!




These amazingly comfortable red heels are from Target. They are super affordable, and resemble a lot of shoes that are way more expensive. They look exactly like the Steve Madden sock heels, only maybe a little less height. But that's what makes them so comfortable!











Now these bad boys are legit flames. They're fireeeeeee.
I got them from Forever 21. I know they seem like they're really high heels, but the platform in the front makes them really comfortable. I'm also extra af and needed to get these, even though I didn't have anywhere to wear them to. But no worries! I will find a place!
Enjoy the day, ladies! Hope you liked my picks.
Put those heels on and strut!
