What is it about Sugar Cookies that plants a cheesy satisfied grin on our faces? In essence; it's just a thick vanilla cookie smothered with coloured icing. AH hAH! ICING! that's where the magic lies. *wink*...A reminder of the holidays? ...of childhood? ...or of joyful moments covered in icing-filled sugar rush adventures!
Be it fun messy days of frosting these with mom in the kitchen; or mischievous attempts at pulling these out of cookie jars hidden in the pantry, sugar cookies will always remind us of all things naughty, creative and sweet!
Chef James victoriously returned to the NotterSchool on Wednesday after graciously snagging the Gold Medal in a Food Network Cake Challenge. I shan't ruin the suspense with too much detail; but be sure to watch out for more episodes of Chef James Roselle on American cable TV guys!
We spent the first day of our month of wedding cakes doing royal icing and practicing our piping skills on these delicious cookies.I could do this all day! Forming intricate lines and shapes from the tip of a tiny paper cone filled with coloured icing gets me all excited! There's nothing I love more than decorating .. decorating ANything! Cakes..cookies, rooms, scrapbooks, cards, blank walls...!
Everything decorate-able = I love. *grin*
I remember being little Su; all craft-sy and inquisitive! I'd whip up a ton of ornaments and origami displays and would make Mom use them in our home. She would frown... sigh.. display it for a day or so and take it off straight after I've forgotten about it! Haha
I must have drove her nuts with my kiddy crafted antics. It was difficult for my parents who tried hard not to hurt my feelings and enthusiasm when I concocted my silly 'creations' on a daily basis! I'm just glad I didn't burn anything too expensive along the way. ....or did I? Hmm... a microwave.. I remember to be the worst thing I ruined! :P
