I’m excited to start my year with some fun cookie themes, like these Parisian ones here. I’ll be doing a travelling series of Around the World decorated cookies, and I just happened to begin my journey with Paris, France.

Oh la la! I knew when I found these paris design sticky notes. O’ Harry Potter… so many possibilities. As a children’s lit academia nut, of course I adore Harry Potter. I gobbled up every one of the books as they hit the stands, starting way back when in—sheesh, ’98 was it? And I’ve done many a Harry Potter cookie over the years, for the cookie possibilities are many.

Gryffindor shields, Hedwig, the Sorting Hat, broomsticks, Potions books, cauldrons, castles, Dementors, wands, Harry, Hermione, Ron, Hagrid, The Daily Prophet, Bertie Bott’s… And so, narrowing down my choices to just a few for this post was near impossible.

Decorating Bags: Preparing

Here are some tips for preparing all kinds of bags. Disposable Bags: Disposable bags are a great invention! They have the convenient throw-away nature of parchment cones (although they CAN be reused if you wish), and the comfort of a reusable bag. If you will be using your disposable bag without a coupler, you will need to clip about 1 inch from the tip of the bag.

To use a coupler, push the coupler down inside the bag just as far as it will go. Reusable Bags: Reusable bags are quite similar to disposables when it comes to preparation; however, unless you have a very large tip, you will always need to use a coupler with the reusables. IMPORTANT NOTE: You need to be aware that both disposable and reusable bags are very flexible. Parchment Cones: Sandwich Bags: Stock Photography: Search Royalty Free Images & Photos.
