It seems she took on a small cookie-catering gig for tomorrow and we had to churn out five different batches of cookies. Right now, we've more or less conquered four of them, with the fifth to be baked in the morning.
Things I always remember when baking at home:
- The right tools (offset spatulas, clever cookie cutters, lots of parchment paper, proper piping bags and tips, Viking Professional Stand Mixer, etc.) make ALL the difference.
- It never hurts to make things look as good as they taste. I'm famous for making delicious, but FUGLY food. New leaf: make my food pretty.
- Sanding sugar goes a long way toward making sweet things pretty.
