On a recent trip to Houston,
I asked my sister-in-law,
Gail, if she would mind giving
me some cookie decorating lessons.
Gail is so creative and I thought
if she actually showed me how to ice
cookies, I might actually
tackle them on my own.
|This was the set up when we arrived. |
She had already baked the cookies
and even iced one (upper right) so that
it could harden and we could try
a special technique on it.
|The icing bags were filled and ready to go.|
|Eager pupils were Kim and Sweetie,|
pictured with teacher, Gail.
|I was the third eager student.|
|My first attempt at a cupcake cookie.|
|Gail demonstrating the fine art of spreading the icing.|
|Some of my finished creations.|
|We ate just a few along the way.|
Not because we were hungry, you understand,
but because we wanted to test them to be
sure they were tasty. (And they were!)
|Kim was a natural, rubber gloves and all.|
|Thank you Gail for the great lesson.|
I cannot wait to begin baking.
