Here you will find all of the sugar cookie tutorials that I’ve created for the site. I will list them in alphabetical order so they are easy to find. Remember to visit my page Getting Started: Learn How to Decorate Buttercream Cookies for my recommended products, tools, and tips for decorating buttercream iced cookies. I also have a great How-To Category Page for more detailed tips and techniques for decorated buttercream sugar cookies. You can also search for specific cookies for parties or events by using the menu bar at the top of any page.

You may be hesitant to start decorating cookies with buttercream. Maybe you are a royal icing cookie decorator or maybe you’ve never even heard of buttercream iced cookies. In my opinion, decorating cookies with buttercream frosting is faster and easier than royal icing. Royal icing literally needs hours to dry while crusting buttercream is ready to go right away. I also love all of the textures you get from buttercream frosted cookies.

Ultimately what wins my heart for buttercream cookies over royal is the taste. Everyone loves buttercream frosting and recipes for buttercream are easy to find. If you need a crusting buttercream recipe, check out my recipe here. I’ve also included tips on how to package buttercream cookies in that post so you can bring them to your event worry-free.

When you are ready to dive in, check out these beginner-friendly cookie decorating tutorials. Make sure to visit this page often as it will be updated with new & free tutorials regularly.

Happy decorating!
