Supply List

Before we can get started with the fun stuff, let’s make sure we have everything we need.

First, review the recipes supplied for this class to make sure your pantry is stocked with the basics (flour, sugar, butter, etc.) Beyond that, there are a few additional supplies we’ll need.

The Essentials

  • Meringue Powder
  • Tipless Piping Bags
  • Gel Food Coloring (I recommend “Americolor” brand)
    • Super Black

    • Warm Brown
    • Ivory
    • Taupe

  • A fan brush (that has only been used with food-safe products)
  • A liquid to dilute gel colors for painting (e.g. vodka, grain alcohol, clear vanilla, or water)
  • A clean plastic paint palette or plastic plate
  • A scribe tool (or pointy toothpick)
  • A long, sharp knife

For your convenience, I’ve compiled this supply list on my Amazon storefront. Head on over if there’s anything you’re missing!

Cookie Cutters

In this class we will be using the original “Sweet Sugarbelle Shape Shifter” cookie cutter set. I know that many of you probably already own this set, but for those who do not, it’s available on Amazon as well as most online cookie supply shops. In the United States, there are always great deals on SSB products at Michaels and Joann’s. Both outlets regularly provide coupons that offer you product discounts upward of 50% off!

If you live in an area where you’re unable to access Sweet Sugarbelle products, you should be able to utilize the templates provided to hand-cut your shapes. You’ll first need to print your templates and cut around the outline of each shape. You can then place the cut-out paper on your dough and use a penblade or sharp paring knife for hand-cutting the shapes.
