I have been blessed with a wonderful man who married me a little over twenty-seven years ago, he is one of my biggest fans (my daughter being other)!
Every Valentine’s Day he gives me a dozen Peonies, and I forget to do anything (yes I realize I am horrible), this year I am giving him Helen the Valentine Hedgehog on a Tree Trunk Cookie Box filled with chocolate!
This tutorial is a twelve mini version of the newest a 408.92 minute course at 5th Avenue Cookie Decorating Online School! Each month new courses are added teaching new skills, techniques, and secrets!
In the movie tutorial I am putting conversation hearts in my cookie box, however I’ll be substituting the “Dove Chocolates!”
