Copycat Dessert Fanatic

I’ve been creating fun food crafts for over 15 years, but I’m especially fond of decorating cookies, drawing on marshmallows, putting stuff on sticks, and any creative manipulation of food, such as unique twists on copycat desserts. My book is Sugarlicious. My blog is The Decorated Cookie. My other blog is Food Craft Ideas. I also have two (somewhat) useless master’s degrees and two (very) distracting little girls. I live in Washington DC.
