I finally have another Food Friday post for you today. I have been kind of undecided by what to share in terms of recipes. I have cooked a bunch of Crock Pot recipes but want to try out some more before posting my review. So in honor of the first big upcoming holiday I decided to make these fun Halloween inspired sugar cookies with royal icing.
The reason I have decided to use royal icing for my cookies is that other than frosting it dries hard and doesn´t smear all over the other cookies.
I have never worked with royal icing before. It wasn´t to hard but you definitely have to get adjusted to working with it and it´s also a time race as it starts to get hard the minute you stop stiring. I got a big package of white royal icing and colored it with Wilton Icing Color – these are my favorites. I bought a whole set including a ton of different colors. The colorful lines on the bats and smaller pumpkins are made of chocolate. I got different colored chocolate pens to draw on the cookies. And since it is made of chocolate is cool very quickly and doesn´t smear.
The sugar cookie recipe is from Rachel Parcell´s blog Pink Peonies and it is enough for plenty of cookies. It is enough to make about 6 to 7 batches.
This is my Halloween contribution for this year. I wanted to make a really cool and spooky drink for you guys but just haven´t had the time to figure something out. But I will definitely have one for you next year.
If you are decorating your sugar cookies like I did make sure to tag me on Instagram @madame_schischi.
today was definitely the last long day of this work week and I am so happy. We can finally finish painting our office at home and we also have our family photo shoot tomorrow plus I have a nail appointment so it will definitely be a busy but fun weekend.
On another note I wanted to share this plaid blazer with you. I have already talked about this yellow plaid blazer last year but this time I styled it totally differently and since plaid is still so so popular it won´t hurt to rewear it for this season.
This time I have styled it with a white asymetrical blouse belted with one of my favorite double ring belts I got from Asos years ago but still is a huge favorite of mine. Since the blouse is to short to be worn on its own I have combined it with a pair of wet look leggings and black booties.
Are you also loving the plaid trend or are you rather on the plain side ?
I have another work wear inspired post today for everyone who wants to go chic from head to toe from 9 to 5. I am aware that many work spaces aren´t to casual oriented regarding the clothes you can wear. For this case I am sharing a business casual look with a colorful twist.
Black and white is always a great choice as a base or as a whole look on its own. Yesterday´s work wear look has been for the warmer Fall days but this look will work very well until the beginning of Winter.
I have added a white graphic t-shirt to a black and white plaid skirt and black boots to create my base. So from this point on you can basically add any color to the look you want but since it is Fall and Halloween is on its way I definitely had to add this comfortable and gorgeous orange cardigan. I have seen much more orange around this season which is great cause I definitely love the color.
This week has been full of work wear looks so I hope this helps some of you to gather some day to day inspo.
I am back with another Fall look tomorrow and my favorite sugar cookies on Friday.
I am sharing this casual Fall look for the office today. Not every work environment is super stiff and requires blazer jackets before cardigans so this look would be perfectly appropriate.
If you are reading my blog constantly you know I am all about prints and especially leopard print. Spoiler alert – there is much more to come. But for today´s post we are talking about this cute leopard print cardigan. The print paired with green is a first. Haven´t seen this combo before.
