Surprise Virtual Book Release Party for Sugarlicious~and Donut Cookies!

Well, TODAY is the day!  Meaghan Mountford's second book, Sugarlicious, is being released!  My copy is actually in transit as I write:)  Can't wait!  Click HERE for the most charming book trailer ever!

To celebrate, a few of Meaghan's many fans (spearheaded by Kathia of Pink Little Cake,with a little help from yours truly) decided to surprise her with a Virtual Book Release Party:)

Meaghan is the creative genius behind the popular blog, The Decorated Cookie and the Edible Crafts editor at Craft Gossip (where she promotes and supports food bloggers)!

Her blog offers such a wide variety of cute treats~all creative, and made doable by way of her own illustrations as step-by-step instructions.

For the party, I wanted to make something of Meaghan's that I have had on my "to bake" list ever since I first saw them, almost two years ago~donut cookies!  Her donut (doughnut) cookies are so darling, and pretty simple~my favorite combination! That's what I love about Meaghan and her blog; she has me believing that I can reproduce her creative treats, and I have, quite a few times:)  You can too!

As you can see, where there are donuts, ther are also donut holes.

Instead of giving you my own instructions about how to whip up some sweet donut cookies, I'm going to link you to the original post at The Decorated Cookie blog, so that you can see for yourself what I'm talking about, with beautiful photography to boot!

Take it away, Meaghan...click HERE for complete donut cookie instructions.

I couln't resist bringing one of these donuts to life:) He's excited about Sugarlicious too!

Best wishes, Meaghan, and MUCH SUCCESS with your fabulous new book! XO!

Check out the rest of the celebration with these amazing bloggers:

Kathia of Pink Little Cake
Trisha of Sweetology
Paula of Vanilla Bean Baker
Loren of The Baking Sheet
Jenn of Clever Girl
Katrina of In Katrina's Kitchen

  19. I've been so out of the blogging loop lately, I missed several of your posts, so I'm starting here. I know Meaghan (she sent Nick Malgieri to my blog last year to check out a tart I made from his cookbook..what a thrill!), and those donut cookies look well, just like donuts! Congrats on the book, Meaghan!
