***************GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED******************
Hi again! This morning my friend, Amanda, and I were able to finish our cookies from yesterday. My two-year-old almost thwarted our plan with a runny nose, but we pushed on. Modern-day pioneers, huh? :)
After outlining and "flooding" the cookies yesterday, the royal frosting had finished drying completely overnight and was ready for a little more detail. If you didn't read Part 1 from yesterday, here's a link. We used the same piping bag of frosting to add the veins on the cookies today. This part went really fast, though maybe I should have slowed down a little. :)
I thought this was such a fun activity to learn, that it made me a little sad that I hadn't tried it earlier. One of the many reasons I'm grateful for this blog, is that it forces me to be creative and to try new things. We've had this blog up for a little over 6 months now, and just reached 15,000 views today! That definitely deserves a giveaway to show our gratitude to all our friends, and new friends that take the time to see what we're up to. So here's the question for today's giveaway:
What is something creative that you would love to try/learn, but have been too scared to actually do?
If you answer that question before Monday morning, you could win a mini-starter kit to decorate your own cookies. This kit will include:
Meringue powder (frosting recipe is on Part 1)
Disposable frosting bags
Gel food coloring
Thanks for sharing in this new venture. And a HUGE "thank you!" to my friend, Amanda, for teaching me. I can't wait to try decorating cookies again. Now I challenge you all to go out and try something new. Have a great day!
