This week it's all about pumpkins; the cookie learning curve continues, and if we don't get these out of the house, my latest creative venture could become a weighty matter! I'm learning slowly...
You can see, in this "ghost" pumpkin and acorn close-up, that air bubbles are currently wreaking havoc with the finish on the icing. I have consulted many cookie blogs and websites and, I believe that I might know now how to rememdy that situation with a turkey lacer tool and an offset spatula, along with some less vigorous mixing on my part... we'll see. Next week I'll work on ridding that nuisance along with acheiving some sort of icing consistency knowledge. However, on the up-side, how many mistakes can simply be eaten and forgotten?
In the meantime I've got some sweet treats for neighbors and friends, I don't think a few boo-boos will matter to them. And yes, in case you're wondering... I am still sewing! I hope to have a month long wrap-up post tomorrow.
Life is Good!
