First I made a double batch of red velvet cake pops, minus the "pop" because I realized I didn't have enough sticks.
Today I made sugar cookies. With aqua royal icing and red nonpareils.
It was my first time using royal icing, and wow did it make a royal mess in my kitchen. I should have taken a picture of the icing puddle on my counter, but I'm not that good of a blogger. I added more powdered sugar after the puddle incident and managed to actually get some frosting on the cookies.
Tomorrow I make peppermint meringues and white chocolate covered rice krispie treats. I love rice krispie treats much more than any 26 year old should. I'm waiting to make the chocolate covered strawberries for Friday night when I get back to Michigan so they're fresh for the shower on Saturday. My mom is making the cake so that's one thing I don't have to worry about!
And now I'm off to make some garland and bunting. Sorry for the lack of posts this week...the baking will be over soon!
