SARAH SAYS: Decorated cakes, cookies, etc. are so beautiful and festive. To learn, it does take practice and patience, but it is fun to do and we show you how. Just remember, with decorating, less is definitely more; it's the little details that can really pull your recipe together. Oh, and don't forget, it never needs to look perfect!
