then this happened:
|yes, that's my boy, painting a rainbow on his cookie.|
|the kids each made one. steve kept me company and made several.|
|he even suggested the wreath pattern for photos|
followed the next day by this:
|yes, i have a tiny pumpkin cookie cutter|
|and also a tiny leaf cookie cutter|
|and a tiny apple cookie cutter. sense a theme here?|
have i mentioned how much i love the colors of fall?
i baked two batches of ready-mix sugar cookies. i made the icing from confectioner's sugar and a bit of milk, flavored with a splash of vanilla extract and tinted with wilton gel colors. we painted the icing with clean watercolor brushes and occasionally added sprinkles. i had so much fun by the time i got to the last cookies that i actually fingerpainted the icing to see what kind of effects i could create.
