I decided that a special treat would be the perfect way to celebrate mid-week 'Humpday' so...
I baked a batch of heart-shaped sugar cookies this morning
...at 3:00am when most normal people are asleep ;)
so they were perfectly cool for me to ice when I got home from school.
I used white royal icing (which didn't set as quickly as I hoped),
the icing also had tiny air-bubbles in it.
Next time I will try fondant.
I pulled out a pack of doodle pens (Foodoodlers)
and laid out all the supplies for the Butterballs.
I decided to draw some heart outlines on a few of the cookies
...just to help the Butterballs out.
Okay...I gotta admit, this was the first time we were drawing on cookies
and I just really wanted to have a turn too :)))))
Tamlyn coloured in her cookies perfectly, always staying within the outline.
She even wrote an I 'heart' you message on a cookie (which she proudly presented to Dad)
Ethan started off well, until he decided to test out all the coloured markers on one cookie!
It was all down-hill from there.
Also, he couldn't resist tasting each cookie before he completed decorating them. :D
