c is for cookie

I finally decided what I was going to do with that leftover icing.

I made some of The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies… something like five or six dozen(!), and have rid myself of most of my icing.

I also decided to have a little fun with it, and mixed some rose pink food coloring paste into the last batch, and made some big pink cookies for Christine

I still have more cookies to decorate, but definitely not as painstakingly done as my christmas cookies. I actually never tire of baking… I find it fun and relaxing. Plus, I get to eat the dough as much as I want. ^_^

all hallow’s weekend

I tried my hand at making a picture-type pumpkin carving tonight, and I think it turned out pretty well, check it out:

Anyone recognize the character? It’s Jiji from Majo no Takkyuubin A.K.A. Kiki’s Delivery Service. If you haven’t seen this film, rent it this Halloween night, and watch it while waiting for the doorbell to ring!

I’ll be carving a Kiki pumpkin later this week to match Jiji. 🙂

I also spent the weekend baking Halloween cookies. I think I made 4 dozen sugar cookies and 4 dozen gingerbread cookies. I had all the neighborhood kids come over and decorate the sugar cookies, and then I started decorating some gingerbread today. Feeling domestic this weekend, I guess… heh.
