Valentine’s Day, blah, blah, love, blah, hearts, blah, blah, blah.
And some cookies.
I’ll be honest—I like to include at least a bit of snark in my posts, but it’s hard to be snarky about VD when you’re not single. (When I say VD, I mean Valentine’s Day, not venereal disease. It’s super-easy to be snarky when you have a mysterious rash or so I’ve heard.) So, minimal snark for now. Maybe I’ll work up to it in a few weeks.
For Valentine’s Day heart cookies, I busted out the ombre sugar technique featured in a few previous posts. Using four different colors of sanding sugar (red, white, light pink, and bright pink), I used eight different shades of colors by mixing colors together in various ratios. For a tutorial, see my original ombre sugar post.
To help create the concentric circles, I used a circle template. I did not end up using all of the pink shades on these cookies due to lack of space.
When I was finished with all the sugars, I dump them all into a jar together. Usually, the sugars go into one jar of mixed confetti-style sugars. For this project, since all of these sugars were similarly colored, I put them into one jar of Valentine’s Day-themed sugar. Hopefully I’ll put it to good use soon.
