Just when I think I'm doing most of this parenting thing right, one of my kids will come along and share something that stops me right in my tracks...leaving me questioning myself, "How did that one slip under my radar?" The other day, it came from my daughter: "You never let me do cookies, Mom." "What do you mean?" I asked, "I always let you do cookies with me."
"Yeah, but you don't ever take photos of my cookies. You just take photos of yours."
"Mom, do these cookies have to look all professional?" "Professional?" Is that what she thinks? I said, "No, of course not."
I had cookies left over from the dollhouse batch. I found some left-over blue frosting from the tea party cupcakes in a container in the fridge. As we frosted the blue background, I said, "You know...these are starting to look like cookies I've seen recently." We got online. Yep, pretty similar to these by Sugarbelle.
She followed my steps.
We chose a few flower cookies to make sheep. She dunked the sheep in coconut. Two small flowerpot cookies would work for faces.
She broke apart a few cookies from our left-over cookie stash to fashion a head-to-toe bunny and decorated a few by her own direction.
