So, I made his couple dozen unfrosted cookies and had a few dozen left. I could easily just freeze them for a later date, but Adam asked who those other cookies are for. Being the softy that I am when it comes to my kids, I decided to whip up a batch of royal icing and frost them for the boys, Jay included. Now I won't lie, I will sample just one, probably the biggest one. The rest are for the boys and a few other lucky friends.
The recipe is the same one I used on Halloween for the ghosts, and for the cupcake cookies on Brandon's birthday. Click here for the recipe. I colored the royal icing with red gel food color (I also use pasteurized egg whites in a carton to make the royal icing). A few drops for the light pink border, add a few more drops for hot pink icing, and even more for red.
