In honor of our patriotic holiday I baked some sugar cookies and had my first royal icing experience/experiment. Thankfully, Bekah stopped by just in time to help with the icing. Our first few cookies looked pretty rough. But after a few alterations to the icing we were able to call it a success. Now for those of you that have seen the cover of Martha Stewert's magazine please do not compare her perfect cookies to our more "organic looking" ones. We prefer the hap-hazard look to her perfect "fireworks"....
and for those of you who were impressed, a good majority of our cookies ended up like these below.
not so pretty.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend :)
oh and you can get the recipe/instructions here.
