Hello, hello, hello!
Welcome to the blog of a hopelessly messy schoolgirl, which will – hopefully – contain as many recipes as I make over the course of the next year(or two…or three…). (Just to warn you, these will probably be accompanied by lengthy ramblings about morality, Les Mis, and Oscar Wilde. Beware.)
Anyway, I’m extremely new to the whole food blogging thing(see post below), so bear with me if you can. (I promise that I’m not as bad as a photographer as I look – its that freaking six A.M light.) And please – PLEASE – don’t expect me to be professional. I try my best, but your hopes will still probably be crushed. If you guys have any recipe suggestions, GO SUGGEST THEM! I can never have too many ideas.
So, with that out of the way:
HERE COMES MICKEY!
I swear these things almost gave me a heart attack, but they are ADORABLE. I’ve seen them all over the internet and I’ve wanted to make these since forever.
I have not baked cookies in a long time.
A long, long time.
I’m more of an interesting-flavor-combo-cupcake-with-a-swirl-on-top kind of girl – at least usually, so these were a bit of a change-of-scenery-challenge. (Oh my goodness, did I just call cookies a challenge? I take it back. MAKE THEM.) And this was my first royal icing experiment, so…
Yeah, I make a lot of excuses. Sorry.
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
