Cookie Fail....but still yummy and fun!

So I got this great idea that for a fundraiser I would make cookies shaped like Africa and ice them very Valentine like. So I had Clint gather the ingredients and since he knows how much I LOVE to bake (haha) , he decided to make them with Laynie's help.
I guess I'm better in my sewing room then in the kitchen baking!

So Laynie got to work.....

They turned out very pretty, but with my 1950's oven (that you can only fit a round baking sheet in) ....that meant only 6 cookies at a time! Oiy!
Clint got very creative and decided we would pipe the edges and use "flood" icing for the middle. Little did they know, it is HARD work and takes a really long time! They really did a great job though!

Needless to say, we aren't selling V-day Africa cookies after all. Laynie and Clint did a wonderful job though!!! I'll stick to fundraising with my sewing and such...for now anyway!
This is how Penny helped.
