Do you listen to music when you decorate cookies? I do. I get lost in the music and it makes the decorating go faster. Do you dance when you decorate cookies? I do. When I’m waiting for cookies to dry, so I can move on to the next step, sometimes I’ve been known to get up and dance around the room.
So now that you know some personal stuff about me let’s move on to the cookies. I was asked by a friend if I could make some cookies for her daughter’s ballet recital. I was more than happy to make them. She requested simple scalloped cookies with ballet shoes on them. The colors are white & purple. Here’s what I came up with.
Do you know how hard it is to photograph purple? It always comes out looking blue. Fortunately I think I was able to capture the purple color pretty well in the photograph. By the way I’m going to point this out so that you can see how crazy my brain works. I did not notice until I was writing this but I did not place the cookies correctly. They should be turned a little more clockwise. It’s not fun having a brain like this because sadly I do not care for most of the cookies I make. I find flaws in all of them.
Anyway, I really hope Sydnie and her friends enjoy the cookies and have a great recital.
Have a great weekend!
