A Snowman...in Skivvies??

I've done my baking blitz. I made shortbread, 2 types of brittle, cranberry gumdrops, nanaimo bars, cereal squares, chocolate mint fudge, and gingerbreads. And it just about killed me. Cause I did that all in one day.

Why do I leave things to the last minute????

But my daughters pitched in and helped me decorate the gingerbread. Even so, as we neared the end of the cookie pile we were all getting a little tired. Plus, I was feeling pressure from the ever drying out royal icing. So I tried to get creative with my icing application. It didn't work out so well.


If you look closely, one of the snowmen on the left looks like he's in his skivvies!

At least we all had a good laugh. That's pretty much what it should be about, no?

Wow! That's a lot of beautiful work. Hope you have a Happy New Year. I've got a book contest going on over at my blog. A couple of SCBWI Ontario writer's books up for grabs.

Thanks for the nice cookie comments. They also tasted good!

Sounds like a great contest, Terry Lynn. I'll pop over to your blog.
