The September 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Mandy of “What the Fruitcake?!” Mandy challenged everyone to make Decorated Sugar Cookies based on recipes from Peggy Porschen and The Joy of Baking.
September brings AFL football finals and Spring here in Australia, I didn't really like the team colours competing so flowers and floral colours won the battle of the decoration theme.
Mandy's very thorough recipe steps meant that all my cookies kept their shape and looked perfect coming out of the oven! The decoration part went smoother than expected, I didn't make the sugared flowers - I had a little stash of them in the pantry so decided it was a great time to make use of them.
This is a great skill to have learnt as these biscuits are so versatile and could be appropriate for many different occasions. So yes I would definitely make them again.
Thanks to Mandy for her wonderful challenge and notes! To check out more DB results - check out Daring Kitchen.
