Easter Cookies

I baked a few cookies for Vicente's Easter party at school today.
I prepared my trusty rolled sugar recipe from Wilton, cut them out in egg shapes and baked them until golden brown.

Next, I prepared Royal Icing and decorated them in a teal, orange and white color scheme. It was very useful to first read the technique explanation at the website, because as anything you want to make nicely, there's some tricks of the trade.

I hope the kids enjoy them, I sure loved making these and will definetely make them again!

Cake Disasters

Today I stayed at home, feeling a little bit sick to my stomach.
So what do you with your time when you are sick and you can't stand food? Well, you read FOOD BLOGS! I know, that's not what normal people would do, but that's what I did.

Anyway I ended up in this HILARIOUS blogspot: wreckcakes, you gotta check that out! I laughed my heart out and went back like 10 pages in "older posts"...Made my day definitely.

And now, after looking at all those cakes, I don't feel as bad for my own cake wreck, and so I will share it with you. HINT: It's supposed to be a lightsaber... What? What do you think it looks like? awww c'mon! ;)
