Cookie Apocalypse

So, back before Christmas, jtdiii hosted his cookie decorating party, and we finally managed to make it.  Which is good, because I didn't get any of my own baked at all this year.  It was a lot of fun, and having just painted lots of angels on isabeau_lark's laurel document, I decided to decorate some angel cookies.  Started with purple wings, like the document, white robe, yellow halo... and then I tried to put in facial features with a large piping tip.  It was bad.  So then I tried to fix it, and made it worse.  The general consensus was that I was channeling the weeping angels in Doctor Who...  Never one to give up, I tried again.  Purple wings, white robe, yellow halo, found a black with a fine tip... and just as I put the eyes in, vynehorn said "oh, are you putting pupils on the eyes?"  Brilliant!  I hadn't thought of that!  So then I tried to cover the black with blue... and that one looked like it had a black eye.

We decided I was depicting the war in heaven with icing.

I was not going to be defeated by sugar cookies.  Tried again.  This time I had a brilliant idea - I put white dots for the eyes, and then put little blue candies for the irises.  That one looked like a meth head.  That's when I gave up.

Everyone commented that if the first one moved from the bottom of the box to the top during the ride home, I should eat that one immediately.  I ate the meth head angel before I took the picture.  Sorry.


I guess that's why they lead with "Fear not?"
