So, yesterday as I was baking sugar cookies with my daughter I thought I would attempt to create fabulous works of art like Eleni.
Oh why do I do this to myself?
I am famous for taking on projects that are very time consuming and labor intensive and this was no exception! I can't just make frosting like normal people ... no! I have to make royal icing and try to create seamless images on my goofy looking cookies. Needless to say, I was not prepared for the amount of time it takes to ice these dang things and I am beginning to wonder if it was worth it.
To illustrate my point:
These are Eleni's cookies. They are uniform, full of color and detail. A real thing of beauty!
Why anyone would want to do this exhausting work for a living is beyond me. Don't worry, I won't quit my day job.
