Decorating Cookies with DOTS! a video tutorial

Want to know how to decorate cookies with flat dots, like these?

Or these?

I decorated cookies for years before I knew how to do this....and it's so easy!  I find I want to add dots to everything.  Here's a little video to show you how:

Thanks for watching!  See you next time!

Good vlog Bridget and more than that, I love your great sense of humour! The writing on your blackboard "never eat more than you can lift" and your little note at the end "ignore the dead plant..." Your pink icing shows up great on the video by the way! Tell Kiddo to keep pushing you for a "bloopers" vlog. He's a great videographer and we all look forward to seeing his "Best Of"

Haha! I kill plants, too! Great video, Bridget... funny, I'm working on pink and white dots this week... Have a nice week :)

Lora said...

LOL I make cookies and kill plants as well. Thanks for a great tutorial.

TidyMom said...

another GREAT video!!.....lucky for me you told me how to do this with my first cookies, and it's a look I love on cookies!!

I agree, we're going to need a "bloopers" video one day! HA!

I love all your cookies, such beautiful work! I've been thinking about trying my hand at decorating cookies. First I need a cookie recipe that "J" likes and that will stay firm after icing, right?

Great idea for this tutorial vlog Bridget. You keep knocking them out of the park! Question for you...who video tapes your segments? I would love to do more 'vlogs' but never have anyone here that can tape for me. Anyway, another winner!!!

Amanda said...

Great tutorial! I had always wondered how in the world people got those beautiful dots on cookies and then I saw a tutorial on your blog. I am forever in debt :)

Michaela said...

I can't say it enough~ you look so great :) these tutorials are awesome~ I didn't know the dots could be sooo easy :)

sbroughton said...

Okay, this looks fun but first I need a good cookie recipe/instructions...where can i find that?

Laurel said...

I love, love, love your videos, but the camera moving the whole time is making me sea-sick! :) You need a cheap-o tripod to keep it still. Keep the videos coming! Love them! :)

WhimsyCookie....yep, he sure is! :)

sbroughton....sure! Head on over to www.bakeat350.blogspot.com . In the recipe index, you'll find a link to my favorite sugar cookie for decorating...and lots of instructions. Have fun!

Laurel...thanks for the feedback. I actually think my kiddo does a great job with the video camera....zooming in and out when I need him to. I'm sure I'll be using a tripod when he's not at my disposal. :)

Nice tutorial. Your dead house plant comment cracked me up.

Teresa said...

Sometimes I go get popcorn and eat popcorn as I watch the VLOGS!!! ;o)

I have learned SOOOOOO much from you!
Thank you for continuing to be a COOKIE inspiration!

You're great, but your cameraman or woman should shoot your tips, using a steady camera, perhaps fixed over some books. It would help you in further videos.
Congrats,
