A friendly reminder from yours truly… mistakes are fixable in Cookieland.
This is my first cookie decorated using my new Kopykake. I printed out wording I liked, placed it in the machine and went straight to “Kopying.” Well, I held the cookie on the top with my pointer finger and the bottom with my thumb. I must have been nervous because I squeezed the cookie too hard and the bottom point fell right off! Opps! I huffed and I puffed and I freaked out, because this was the ONLY cookie I baked for my friend who was actually going to pay me! But, then, I calmed down and thought… in Cookieland, all is fixable. So that’s how I ended up with a ruffle around the edge. Nice right?
Oh… and my red icing dripped when I was doing the ruffle… so that’s how I ended up with a little heart AND extra wiggles over the “I.”
So next time you’re at it, remember, mistakes are fixable in Cookieland.
Sometime Valentine’s Day is a little too pink and red for me. I love all the hearts, but a little color change was due for me this year. Welcome in purple!! Oh, I know… it’s not really all that different, I didn’t choose lime green or black. But really, who wants to eat a black heart? Cruella de Vil maybe?!
I also tried a lot of different cut out ideas. It was fun to combine multiple sizes and add holes into the cookie to develop different looking ideas rather than a straight plain old heart.
Oh, and wouldn’t you know… I got two orders for these… in pink and red!
