Somewhere between JoAnn's and home, I got over my holiday dream. The kit sat in its bag, on our table for over a week. Soon, A. even quit asking about it. Could I shirk it off until next year?
The guilt was resting heavily on my shoulders when I decided there was no more putting it off. We were down to the Christmas wire. Time to open up that box. Instructions? Who needs em? It's just frosting, some crackers and candy, right? We whipped that icing up, scooped it into the bag, and the frosting joy began.
Enter Scott. Who begins to read the instructions. He mentions something about the frosting tip.
Huh? Frosting tip? Oh, you mean this? I was supposed to put it in the bag first? Hmmm... Oh well, we gotta make do...let's frost this puppy.
Needless to say my hopes of creating a detailed Swiss Chalet or Evergreen Cottage were dashed. The icing went where it wanted in lines and globs. Scott tried to make lattice across the roof. Nice touch. As it slid down the roof and onto the counter, I just laughed with delirious glee and A. and I kept sticking on candy. Here is our finished creation with the Lead Designer:
Truth be told, messy drippy icing and all, it turned out to be pretty fun. A. certainly enjoyed making it, so that's most important. This smile is definitely sugar inspired.
MERRY CHRISTMAS from our house to yours!!
