Today, I released a set of nesting heart cutters you can see HERE. I’m taking the opportunity to also highlight some of my favorite The Sugar Art products, specifically Wedding Gold (now replaced by Golden Halo) and Nu Silver, my two most commonly used products in addition to White DiamonDust. Be sure to visit their website directly to purchase a huge selection of other colors that I will not be stocking! All of the products mentioned by The Sugar Art are 100% edible (unlike highlighter, see a great post by Corianne HERE)!
I designed this following set using each size of our heart cutter set.
The largest black/pink heart is edged (painted directly on the naked cookie base) using Wedding Gold (now replaced by Golden Halo) mixed with Everclear — Be sure to check out my Instagram highlights (tips/tricks) to see the consistency to which I mix my “paste”. The blue rose stenciled cookie right underneath it has the same technique, but using Nu Silver instead!
Wedding Gold (now replaced by Golden Halo) mixed with Everclear painted directly on the cookie.
The following photos show you what Wedding Gold (now replaced by Golden Halo) and Nu Silver look like when mixed with Everclear and fed through an airbrush.

(Make sure you visit my RESOURCE blog post for so much more info on where I purchase my tools & products.)
I hope that gives you a better idea of how versatile these cutters AND products can be, and got some ideas for your future projects. You can check them all out in my SHOP, and browse a much bigger selection of The Sugar Art product on their website. Got questions? Comments? Leave them for me below!
I REALLY hope that these April Showers (literally and figuratively) bring some May Flowers. I was supposed to go to NYC soon and teach @tinymonsteracademy on how to make modeling chocolate and the set I designed included this cookie! But that will just have to be for another time. Cutter is @kaleidacuts and flowers are all modeling chocolate. For those signed up for my @cookwithchibo class, I will be teaching you how to make modeling chocolate and paint it using @thesugarart elite dusts. For those who can’t join the live, the recording is available for purchase on @cookwithchibo website. I’m also considering doing a blog post or YouTube video on modeling chocolate, so please stay tuned. I’ll also be releasing another 12 Beginners’ Kits on my website tonight at 5PM PST!! Turn IG story notifications on to be first to know when they become available! Love you all, stay healthy and sane. Please do not hoard TP :) …… #borderlandsbakery #sacramento #smallbusiness #sugarcookies #decoratedcookies #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeedtasty #cookiedecorating #royalicing #instafood #instadessert #cookiedecorator #diycookies #cookietutorial #quarantinecookies #aprilshowers #rainboot #rainboots #flowercookies #floralcookies #thebakefeed #cookievideo #icingvideo #decoratingvideo #pipingvideo #icingdecorations

For those of you at home with the kiddos looking for something to do, I’m publishing a set of free decorating guides, starting with this summer one you see here-- the PDF download is available on my blog! Swipe to see a screen shot of the guide! I provide the materials list and step-by-step directions on how to achieve these simple designs-- follow along at home. I hope you enjoy! Here’s the thing-- these guides take a lot of time to put together… If you find this useful or want more of these, let me know below. Also open to doing themes per your request.. I’d also love to hear what YOU want to see the most while we adapt to a more digital world -- I’m listening!
Omg you guys 😩we are SOLD OUT. #Limited cookie kits are listed on the website. Please carefully read everything in the listing description if you’re interested in one. We’re all making tough decisions right now and while not perfect, this is the lowest risk way I can see of to keep people inside as much as possible. I’ll leave it at this for now and hope the listing will answer all your questions! Stay safe. Stay sane. Thank you to all the folks on the front lines. Forever grateful. And thank you to everyone who has made any kind of purchase for supplies on the website the last month-- we have set aside some money and will be securing face mask donations to be sent direct to hospitals in Sac and some other parts of the country. THANK YOU. ...
