My Little Pumpkin
Today was the Harvest Party at my daughter's preschool. We supplied 24 sugar cookies for the class. If you have been following my blog any length of time you know I love to make cookie bouquets, so just supplying nondecorated sugar cookies is a fierce showing of restraint. LOL The reason? It was the classmates that decorated their own cookie. So what am I to do? Over-decorate the cookie container of course!
I measured the cookies after baking them to account for any spreading while baked and then created a 3-1/4 inch square box template. I added just enough extra space for the naked cookie to have breathing room. Yes, I believe all sugar cookies need to be clothed with bright cheery frosting. I sponged only two of the boxes to give to the teachers and left the rest for little frosting glazed hands to add the orange color.
I've had the adorable Chicken Girl Designs, Happy Halloween set for a few weeks and I am just now getting to a Halloween project. The images in this set are just darling enough that they wouldn't frighten a preschooler so I inked up the jack o lantern with a cat and mouse peeking out. So cute!
