My friend and I renewed our lapsed annual Christmas cookie decorating party this year, unfortunately without one of the original founding members and former annual host. I got to her apartment bright and early and we baked until our backs ached!
Lots of people came, lots of sugar was extruded onto gingerbread cookies and sugar cookies, and there was even a contest (in which two of the judges were color-blind. Note for next year: Have judges who can actually see the cookies for all their worth). I managed to not take any shots of my cookies this year, and instead ate my favorite (a butterfly) today. Oops!
Here you can see how the table became totally filled with decorated cookies. (I’m there in the center of the table (no Last Supper composition for me, however). Astute viewers will note that the woman sitting to my left and I are wearing the exact same shirt. We bought them together, but lived in different cities at the time!) The cookie decorating was a great time. I’m totally excited for Valentine’s Day now!
