So I got it in my head that I wanted to try baking and decorating some sugar cookies. This first started at Christmas but life (and Christmas!) got in the way. Last week, though, I got to thinking about it again. A lot. So, despite my pneumonia and bronchitis, I decided to give it a shot.
I managed to decorate 5. The others are just plain and they are staying that way. Good thing I don’t get paid by the piece.
Truly, this is difficult. Just getting the icing into the decorator bags makes a mess!
And then the edges bled when I tried to flood the cookies.
I did better when I gave up on the whole flooding thing and just went for pretty designs, like swirls and plaids.
I guess, in the end, they looked pretty good and I know they tasted pretty delicious.
It was a learning experience, that’s for sure. I think I’ll try this again when I don’t have pneumonia. Ya know?
