Last weekend I got together with the girls and we had a cookie decorating party. The original idea was that we would have our friend C and her two kids over, so that we could have a fun time with them, but they were not available. This did not deter us; we decided to have the party without them.
In attendance was my friend N and her mom, me and my mom and our friend C. We were assisted by little C, who is about 18 months old and actually decorated cookies better than I did, I think. Excuse the lighting, the low winter sun was shining right in the window and made it really hard to get a good photo.
Everyone brought snack foods to eat while we were hard at work; as hard as I tried to eat only carrots and hummus, I think I may have snuck in a lot of cookies along the way too. I mean, you have to try each type of cookie with each type of frosting! Right?
My friend made two kinds of cookies: sugar and gingerbread, and three kinds of frosting: maple, orange and butter cream.
We had several shapes, such as a bone, a star, a Santa, a couple of men, a heart, a tree and a bell.
We used food coloring and sprinkles to create our masterpieces.
We had a great time, all of us adult girls, decorating cookies badly.
Have you ever had a cookie decorating party? Do you think you could do a better job decorating (meaning if you have preschool skills or higher) than we did?
