Heart Cookie Explosion
First of all, I would like to apologize for another Valentine's post. You either a.) like Valentine's Day, but already celebrated and have moved on or b.) you hate the day to begin with and would rather be spared for at least another year. But I just had to share...
Our home was invaded this weekend with pink, red and white icing and lots of sprinkles. I was hired to make 300 valentine's cookies and while I just had a ball making these, they kind of took over our sweet little 900 square feet that we live in. I am pretty sure the bed is the only surface that was not drying cookies on Saturday (and if Mr. Hungry had not been taking a nap, I do not think it would have been spared). I ended up with 3 sizes... a teeny mini heart with pink icing, a medium sized heart that I adorned with different sprinkles, and a fairly large heart, which I made into conversation hearts.
I share these because I have picked up a few tricks on how to make that perfectly iced sugar cookie that I thought only existed in magical bakeries. I realize some bakeries can still blow these out of the water with their precision, but I thought these hearts turned out pretty darn cute. Just thought I would share and I will be back soon with the tips I picked up on how to ice a sugar cookie.
