or another one of my favorite blogs is Glorious Treats. Check out these adorable gingerbread snowflakes
So what is a busy momma to do? Well, you cheat, kind of. I mean paying a babysitter so I can decorate Christmas cookies is not really practical. I doubt it is for you either.
So I decided I would do a little experiment to see what I could do with all store-bought cookies, frosting, and the help of two darling 4 year olds. This is what
we I created, while I had 15 minutes of baby napping and the girls were busy creating their own cookie masterpieces.
Amatuer I know, but not so bad either. If I had more time I could probably rock out a Santa star or something, I know I could! The thing I liked best about this project was that it was very easy to set up and do, especially with the girls.
Here is what I purchased:
1) Pre-made cookies from grocery store-can be found in the bakery section
2) Decorating tubes of frosting and tips
I have to say, this frosting in a tube taste way better than Royal Icing! Plus the tubes are kid friendly, they had no problem squeezing out the frosting. Here are the 4 year old masterpieces:
I think they did a great job! Colorful and cute!
So my dream date with my mixer and butter is on hold for now, but this was a fun and great way to satisfy my urge to decorate.
