He made BEAUTIFUL clothes. Like this.
He was my favorite.
Until he berated his plus size client when he was supposed to be making her feel like a queen.
Now, I think he’s a big jerky-jerk face. He better not win.
But, man, his clothes are lovely.
I adored his candy dress.

So, I made it into a cookie! I love the way these came out and they are so simple. Only two icing bags needed! That’s what I’m talking about.
- Circle shaped cookies (I used LilaLoa’s chocolate cookies this time – ummm, YUM)
- Black icing, outline
- White icing, flood
- Pastel purple, yellow, pink, and white/clear sanding sugar. Don’t have them? Neither do I! I’ll show you how to make your own colored sugar with food coloring, granulated sugar, and small ziploc bags
- Pastry bags, couplers, and #2 tips
1. If you don’t have the right colored sugar, here’s how you make your own.
Pour some granulated sugar into a ziploc bag. Add a very small amount of food coloring. Like, this much:
Knead the bag until all sugar is colored.
2. Outline your cookies with black icing using a #2 tip and pipe the inside design.
I used a projector, but an easy way to do this without one is to print the design on paper, cut out the round shape, and cut away sections as you draw them on with a food writer. I did something similar for my Mad Men cookie by outlining the general shape, then cutting away to draw the interior lines.
3. When adding the colored sugar, you should work with one color at a time. So, using white icing, flood all the sections that should be the same color.
Dump on some colored sugar.
Let it sit for a couple minutes. Tap off the excess.
If sugar is sticking to your unflooded sections, you can use a small paintbrush to brush it off.
4. Wait approximately 45 minutes to one hour before you flood the next section – you don’t want the colors to mix!
5. Repeat until all sections are flooded. For the white sections, I used plain granulated sugar.
