So much for having a blog post written by 9:00 pm every Sunday night! I spent my Sunday evening helping my son to prepare for his presentation on the state of New Jersey (due today). Turns out Jersey is a pretty cool place! I learned alot of interesting things about the state. Did you know M&Ms, Oreos and Skippy Peanut Butter all come from New Jersey?
Last weekend was my daughter's birthday so I mailed her a care package with these very glittery cookies. (She's alway been a bit of a glitter fanatic). I'm happy to report that all of the cookies arrived in Boston in one piece! I think this is the first time I've shipped cookies with 100% success! That's one of many small hurdles to starting my own cookie business that I'm happy to have figured out! (wish I'd taken pictures of how they were packed - they were wrapped in tons of tissue and put in the box on their sides)
I've always used my edible glitters / diso dusts very sparingly (they're kind of expensive). But for these cookies - I thought - the heck with it - and I dumped it on like it was goin' out of style. For these cookies I used American Silver Disco Dust and I followed Sweetopia's tutorial for working with Disco Dust. On some of the cookies, I made the zig-zags a little too tight and I couldn't get in there with my paint brush to clean up the excess glitter but now I know what I'm doing and I can't wait to play with glitter again!
