CookieCrazie's Week in Review








_________________________________________________

Personal Side


I did my final Valentines cookies this week.
They were fun.....but I'm kind of done with red, pink & white.....at least for now. ;)

Next week I'll move on to some other themes.
I've got a list of themes I want to do in the coming weeks.
It is so fun to plan cookies around a theme!!!

In a way, it was a lazier cookie week than usual.
I had baked & froze cookies last week that I decorated this week.
I challenged myself to make simpler designs one day.
Why is that so hard for me?
I literally have to stop myself and say "NO!" when I'm decorating. haha

The weather has been gloomy these last few days.....it has my mood gloomy too.
I don't like it when I let external things influence my mood.
Hopefully I'll pull out of the slump as I start thinking about spring.
There's lots of exciting things coming up in the months ahead.

Thanks for reading my silly blog.
I'm thankful for your patience with me.
And thanks for encouraging me by being here. :)


Instagram photos for this week:

Pink.....lots of pink. Lol

Today I challenged myself to only three colors and only wet on wet decorating.
It was harder than I thought it would be. sigh.....

Dotty hearts.....fun and easy.

Today is a pattern-y kind of day. :)

Rainbow iced cupcake..... I know.....it's random. :)

So I can bake and freeze cookies a week in advance? And thaw them before decorating?

I love reading your "silly" blog!

Hi Pam! Have you ever had any problems (especially) when using super red...after a few days dark spots appear on the icing? I know it's from the butter that can seep into the icing but do you know how to prevent that? My cookies are a softer cookie so I don't want to bake them longer. I use a heating gun to seal the glaze & a dehumidifier & fan but I've noticed this still happens. Any ideas? Thank you!

Hi Stacy.....yes, I've had this problem. I use a softer cookie too.....and I also use a heat gun. My personal opinion is that it has to do with colder temperatures....because I don't have near a problem with it in the warmer months. But I have no way of proving it.... I wish I could help. I just grin and bear it. Thanks for writing. :) 3

Thank you so much for your reply, Pam! At least I'm not alone with this! 'Tis one little crumb in the life of a cookie lady! lol ;)
