Well, this challenge was a total fail. First, I don't really have good piping accouterments. Nor do I really want any. As you may have noticed, I tend to shy away from things that take patience or precision. It isn't that I'm incapable so much as uninterested. So, I knew I had to pipe with my crappy plastic, leaking bag and my not very fine piping tip. Well, we were headed to a BBQ at a friend's house and it was going to be dark out, so no one would be able to see my crappy piping anyway so I went for it.
I made about 3 dozen sugar cookies and cooled them.
To honor the new spring season I went with yellow and blue frosting and I iced the cookies with yellow as the base.
I tried making flowers, dots, lines, swirls, and even a really embarrassing attempt at a bird (see it in there?), but they all looked pretty awful. My frosting was acting weird (separating oddly) so I called it quits after a handful of cookies and just brought the yellow frosted ones to the BBQ. They tasted fine, but over all I call this challenge a bust.
