I saw this Easter Eye Candy post yesterday and thought the timing was perfect because I could use some cookie decorating inspiration. However, I now sort of think it's defeating to see the beautiful cookies others create, compared to what transpires in my kitchen :(
Don't look too closely at the photos below because my piping needs some serious practice. However, Chris and I sampled a couple and they are delicious, so I guess it doesn't matter too much what they look like :)
I think the problem is that I haven't practiced much because it's kind of a pain to bake the cookies, make the frosting, and then get out all the decorating supplies. Below was my very haphazard setup this morning.
One tip I picked up at the cookie decorating class I attended recently was to use an angled spatula to frost cookies, and it works so well! I picked up a Wilton 9-inch at Michael's.
Now I'm headed to a concert at Wisconsin Lutheran College where my cousin Joan is performing. I've finished just enough cookies this morning so that I have a few to give to her and her husband Lee.
