So a week or so ago, we had our annual Cookie Decorating day at my mum's. This is when we take a MOUNTAIN of baked sugar cookies and get funky with sugar...and colors, and sprinkles.
And when I say a MOUNTAIN of sugar cookies, I do mean it:
My mum bakes them all up ahead of time, and also whips up a TON of colored icing bags, and bowls and plates of sprinkles:
It's so much fun! My sister's friend has been coming for a few years with her daughter. It's become THEIR tradition, too!
I think everyone loves the creativity, especially my mum...she gets so into it and does a lot of details!
I like to think of it as cookie art. This year there were no risque cookies....some years there are quite a few, and my mom has to leave them home. Can't give poor office ladies a heart attack!
My mom takes a large portion of the cookies to her work to give to her co-worker's as a Christmas present. Apparently, they bug her for WEEKS prior to the day...they love it so much. They tell the new folks all about it, as well. Highly anticipated. HA
Accidents DO happen...some on purpose (you get hungry decorating for 4 hours):
and some by accident:
But in the end, we end up with sheets and sheets of amazing, funny, pretty, cool, silly and wild cookies. I hope you enjoy...even with my less than stellar photo skills (sometimes I should step away from the F1.8...seriously!!)
