We had a little cookie decoration competition a couple of days ago. Turns out neither of us can actually decorate cookies! We made two of each shape and decorated 10 cookies each. I’m going to go ahead and say that I don’t think either of us are meant to become cookie decorating artists. I decided to post this because a) It could be a fun thing to do with your children? (although I should point out that I would never eat something a child has touched unless it was my own child). b) Even better to do when drunk.

Alright, this was our equipment (+ a whole loud of icing sugar):Image

And this was the results (my cookies are on the right):

(It’s supposed to be Homer Simpsons on the left and Walter White on the right).

We left a bit of a mess too:

Petite fourer

image

I tried making petite fourer. The recipe goes along the lines of this: make two sponge cakes. Cut them in half into two layers and spread jam on one side, then put the other layer on top. Cut again so each spong cakes consists of two thinner long cakes. Cut them up inĀ rhomb shapes. Make frosting from insane amounts of frosting sugar. DIP THE RHOMBS IN THE FROSTING. Add sprinkles. Done. The only problem is that the frosting is like thick glue and the rhombs fall apart when I try to dip them. Apart from that you’re pretty much drowning them in liquid sugar. They were pretty good but the frosting measurements definitely needs some tweaking.
