We cookied for Thanksgiving. After finding a tutorial here, I convinced a few family members to help me out.
They turned out pretty darn cute, despite my 4,000 mistakes. (No really, the first time making anything, I unintentionally sabotage everything.)
This time, the main issue was frosting consistency. An attempted rescue by the microwave only made things worse. Don't microwave. Just don't do it.
But like almost any project, the little flaws created in the process become minimal when the cuteness is finished in its entirety.
Just ask Elaina...
