we had a fun time decorating sugar cookies for easter today! i started uploading some of the photos and got a little carried away.... these little easter peeps are just too cute i guess!
"hey mom, where'd my jelly bean go?"
"hey, what the...?!"
"mmmm, that looks good, i think i'll have that!"
when i first saw this photo full size, i couldnt believe how grown-up jack looked! unfortunately, these pictures are much more fun to look at blown up on a 27" imac monitor... :)
here is my attempt at icing sugar cookies. once i figured it out, it was pretty easy. it just took a dozen cookies to figure out what i was doing!
i made these with the intention to deliver them to some friends. when i was checking out different icings online, i read a tip that said to put the cookies in the freezer to help the icing harden faster. BAD IDEA! when we were ready to deliver them, i took them out of the freezer, set 'em up on the plate, took a picture and ran out the door. as soon as we were in the car the icing started to melt...all over the plate... there was NO STINKIN' WAY i was taking those for someone else to look at! after a short freak-out, i made chris run into the store and buy some cupcakes that we tied a ribbon and a note around, and dropped those off instead! oh yeah, and we ate some of the cookies on the ride home!
