Josh has his piano recital today, which is the perfect opportunity to
unload provide sweet treats. I'm usually a from-scratch kind of baker, but due to the time limit, we bought the Pillsbury tube of cookies. Since I'm a little overconfident in my own abilities, I didn't read any instructions save for the oven temp needs to be set at 350 and then bake for 10 minutes. Well, I wasn't aware of exactly how much the cookies would spread while baking. When I opened the oven, this greeted me:
Mmmm, tray cookie. Luckily, I have a very good spatula and the rectangular shapes gave Cam and I a little more creative license. Thus, we have Frankenstein cookie:
Piano keyboard cookie:
And the one nearly perfect circle became Mike Wachsowki:
Camdyn made some beautiful pumpkins and one pink, pumpkin explosion (also beautiful):
By the way, teaching a four-year-old about food safety is really hard. I glanced up from my cookie decorating and caught Camdyn licking frosting off the sprinkle container. She didn't understand why that wouldn't be a good idea. In her mind, why waste good frosting?
Now to grace Josh's piano recital with our works of cookie art. Happy Sunday!
