Halloween Cookies

Aside from our Halloween cat being pink (drying red), they didn't turn out too bad for our first time attempt at piping and flooding the frosting. 

Our biggest error, we just jumped right in and gave her a go. Although they look okay, it was a LONG drawn out process that should not have taken as long as it did.

Lessons learned:
  1. Watch You Tube videos BEFORE doing them on how to make the frosting.
  2. Watch You Tube videos BEFORE doing them on how to get the right consistency for the piping and the flooding. 
  3. Watch You Tube videos BEFORE doing them on the technique for piping and flooding. 
  4. Watch You tube videos BEFORE doing them to realize how time consuming they are and you should only attempt one style of cookie at a time, because doing cats, pumpkins and ghosts basically makes everything three times as long. 
  5. Do not think you automatically know all this shit beforehand next time and you'll save those poor little ghosts, cats and pumpkins quite a bit of profanity. 

Happy baking if you are doing any for the holidays. Our next batch of cookies should end in better, easier results. Thanks You Tube.
