Happy Valentine’s Day!!

You know I love any excuse to decorate some cute sugar cookies and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Back in grade school Valentine’s Day meant filling out Valentine’s cards for classmates and eating ungodly amounts of conversation hearts. They were the “it” Valentine candy. Would a boy give you one that said “Cutie”, “Be Mine” or “Let’s Kiss”? It was anyone’s guess and 10-year old girls’ hearts were aflutter with all the possibilities that the day could bring. Fast forward a couple of decades and I decided a throwback was in order.

I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and decorated with royal icing (see links for both below under ‘Resources’). I stuck with some of the classic phrases, although forgot on some of them that the words are usually always stacked. Oops! Some details on the tips I used:

♥  I outlined the hearts with a #2 decorating tip.

♥  I piped the words with a #1 decorating tip.

My Valentine more than approved of these cookies :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day holiday and enjoy some extra-special love and attention today!
