Lady Bird and Honey Bee Sugar Cookies

I wanted to do something special for my grand daughters first birthday.   I  have always wanted to try my hand a making sugar cookies with royal icing.  What a better time than now to try to make some ladybirds (ladybug) and bumble bees cookies.   I have chosen ladybirds and bumble bees because Gracie's first birthday is going to be in the ladybug theme, and I have always admired bumble bees.

  I found several blogs that have inspired me to move forward with my baking project and they have also been very insiteful and a wealth of knowledge on the subject.... so I feel confident that I can do this!

   I have learned many tips, or secrects to the trade of making these types of sugar cookies with royal icing.   I have gathered the recipe I plan to use for these cookies and also for the royal icing.   I have also puchased my ladybug and bumble bee cookie cutters.  I'm ready to start!


These are the cookie cutters that I have chosen to use for this project.  You can find these recipes that I used for the cookies and royal icing on SweetSugarBelle's site.   Let me share this with you.... I've never tasted a better sugar cookie than this recipe!

 Okay.... don't judge to harshly.  There is a story behind these ladybird and bumble bee cookies that were made for our little ladybug!  I planned for a quiet day of decorating... Well that didn't happen!  My house was busier than normal and everyone after finding out what I was doing wanted to help decorate Miss Gracie's First year B'Day Cookies.  So... that's what we did, everyone had a hand in decorating these cookies and the great thing about it is she's to young to judge, she just knows that everyone loves her very much! 


  1. Where did you get your cookie cutters! I need a honey bee for one of my daughter in laws showers and a lady bug for the other.

  2. Sorry, I’m just now getting your message... off etsy and ebay. Hope its not late for your shower!
