I've had a tough last week, so I decided to do something nice for myself (and my kids). Some relax-cookies.
I baked Lila Loa's chocolate cookie recipe that I wanted to try forever and never got to do it. It is wonderful! Then I made a little green icing and made it a little thinner than my favorite piping consistency. I did this to make sure that I don't even think about making perfect, intricate designs.
Then I started to doodle. Drew the lines without thinking about them, let the lines and curves come out of the bag as they wanted. Oh, it felt soooooo good!

Happy St' Patrick's Day!

Thank you. I'm one of those that are embarrassed to post my pictures on cookie connection.ReplyDelete
Just enjoy what you do! When you enjoy it you will do it more, and every single time you will get better at it! Don't let internet kill the fun! I don't post on Cooke Connection often... it became kind of a huge cookie art gallery, which is nice to have. Luckily there are other forums where we can share our passion with friends who will appreciate what we do :) Even better: we can share the cookies with real people around us (donate to a retirement community, church...) and everybody will appreciate our work for sure!Delete
