Favorite Foodie Fridays… Sweetopia Proves Baking is an Artform!

If you haven’t visited the blog Sweetopia, it’s a must bookmark. Marian is an amazing artist. Her canvas is sugar. I have learned so much from reading her blog and always leave her site inspired.  She shares amazing tutorials including what to do when air bubbles pop up in your royal icing, how to make gum paste flowers, and how to create a marbleized design on sugar cookies. Look at her beautiful cookies below. She walks you through step by step how to achieve this look, and will make you feel like you can attempt it.


 Marian also has this amazing projector called the Kopykake. She has developed a great tutorial showing exactly how it works. When you see what she has made with it, you’re going to hope that the baking fairy makes one appear in your kitchen. Her frog prince cookies are one of my favorite cookies that she’s shared on her blog.

And you have to remember to visit Sweetopia around the holidays. Marian’s gingerbread creations will get you in the holiday spirit. After I designed the gingerbread dog house last year for the Discovery Science gingerbread competition, my appreciation for all of the little details Marian adds to her houses went off the charts. See this amazing house below… Marian even designed the inside of the house. Go see her beautiful pictures here.

Spend some time searching Sweetopia. You can’t help but be inspired!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I’ve been a fan of Marian of Sweetopia’s work for a long time. She turns out some amazing cookies and her blog is a wonderful way she shares her tips and techniques with the world. She is a class act.
