Finally, a cookie book that’s sweet and sassy! Sweet Talk Cookies has gloriously out-of-the-ordinary cookie designs for every holiday and season of the year.

If you're sick of the same-old cookies, if you can't possibly decorate another tree or stocking, look no further. Hayley Calloway, founder of Hayley Cakes and Cookies (@thehayleycakes), has just what you need—whether that's a Thanksgiving cookie that says "Feed me and tell me I'm pretty" or a T-rex hanging Christmas lights. When it comes to designs, this is a book filled with cookies that have character, for year-round fun. Chapters span winter, spring, summer, and fall, including both holiday-related motifs and designs that simply celebrate something like summer fun (helllooo ice cream truck!).

If you're looking to customize and really make these cookies your own, you'll love the creative lettering workshop. Once you master the art of writing with icing, you can customize to your heart's content!

Inside, you'll find all this and more:
  • A complete cookie class: Outlining all the key materials and techniques needed in the rest of the book.
  • Recipes: Hayley's signature cookie and icing recipes, as well as popular flavor and color variations.
  • Writing workshop: The key to making the cookies your own!
  • Winter cookies: Yes, including plenty for Christmas, New Years, and the loveable "free hugs" cactus, for your valentine.
  • Spring cookies: Find the perfect gifts for mom and pop, as well as Easter designs to "dye" for.
  • Summer cookies: Have some fun in the sun with designs perfect for end of school/summer vacation (or okay, summer school).
  • Fall designs: Make some "fab-boo-lous" cookies for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or just to celebrate the return of pumpkin spice!
  • Templates: For cookies that go beyond cutters, Hayley provides traceable, resizable templates.
If you are the type of person who demands cookies not only taste good, but be in good taste, this is your cookie book soul mate!
