I am so excited that my teen is now learning to bake! She loves learning different ways to decorate cookies. So when we were asked to review the Cookie Decorating Kit by Autumn Carpenter, I knew we had to review it!
This is such a great recipe book and cookie decorating kit! This kit comes complete with a frosting pen, cookie cutter, stickers, a reusable frosting template and recipes for royal icing, run sugar, rolled fondant and buttercream and a whole lot more!
We can’t recommend this book enough! She is having a great time experimenting!
