Someday...when I have the time...I would love to learn how to REALLY decorate a cookie. I am amazed at the skills I see on some of the cookie blogs I follow. I would LOVE to have the steady hand to print like this on a cookie!
I think the key, beyond just being an artist (which I am NOT)...is patience. I just don't think I have the patience...but maybe someday...when I don't have a one year old pulling a chair over to the counter so he can get his little paws all over my cookies...someday when I have nothing better to do...I'll perfect my skills. Maybe someday...I'll invest in the proper tools and bags and tips to do the job right!
But for today...I tried my best. I saw an example of these on the internet and thought they were so cute...and a perfect treat for Seth to take to basketball tomorrow. Actually, I was pleasantly surprised with my amateur attempt. The bottom layer was a little TOO runny and ended up pooling off the cookie (instead of just running a little over). I didn't have a ton of time or all the right tools...but they are for 6 year old boys!
