For the entire month of March, I’m going to have to post only on salty foods, because February is devoted to sugar. So very much sugar coming your way. To celebrate the release of my book, Sugarlicious, on February 7th, I have some treats and fun things in store. And remember, all of the information here and elsewhere will be collected on the all about Sugarlicious page.
Before we delve into the calendar, I have a question for all of you, my dear readers, without whom Sugarlicious would not exist:
What do you want to see on the decorated cookie in the next month?
Because Sugarlicious has a lot. Cookies, cakes, cake pops, marshmallows, cupcakes, petits fours and candy clay. I cover putting sweets on sticks, working with fondant, coloring icing and frosting, piping, flooding cookies, painting and stamping with food coloring, using edible markers and edible icing sheets, decorating with sprinkles and candy, and more. I even add tips on packaging sweets as gifts or displaying them at parties. Everything is in there! Seriously, everything. Organizing all this information was my biggest challenge.
So what confuses you?
Royal icing? Fondant? Cake pops? Flooding?
Or more about blogging and book deals?
Or life in general?
I’m all ears…
Check out what’s in store:
Some noteworthy events:
Giveaways!! The giveaways haven’t ended. Plenty more are on the way.
Treat Week!! This whole week is devoted to appreciating YOU, the reader. Lots of surprises are in store, so be sure to check back.

I have always LOVED February b/c of Valentines Day BUT now..I have to say it has gotten over the top! Wow….What a GREAT month for your FANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m so excited. I’ve had your book pre-ordered for a while. :-). I’d love for you to cover fondant on cookies. I work in royal icing. Have tried the glaze, but still haven’t gotten brave enough to try fondant. Which one tastes good on cookies? What’s the best way to work with it…is it applied to a warm cookie or to a cold one…etc. You get the picture, I know nothing about covering a cookie with fondant. LOL
How fabulous that Sugarlicious launch happens in February and during a leap year!! You certainly have planned a fabulously exciting month for your fans. Whoopee!!
What an exciting month you have planned! I would love to read more about working with candy clay.
