Eleven Types of Piping

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me … Eleven Types of Piping.

Decorative Piping is a skill…

…that I don’t have.

I do have a bunch of decorative tips…

…but, I only used one tip.  A round tip.  Number 7.  Just one.

I also have a lot of food coloring…

…but, I only used two colors (and white).  Blue and Green.  I don’t know why.

Maybe it’s because decorative piping is a skill…

…that I don’t have.

I started out the day thinking I would whip out a few dozen cookies, decorate them with sworls and lace and fancy fretwork … and then have lunch.

It’s almost midnight.  The kitchen has a fine layer of hardened royal icing over every surface.   Colorful sprinkles and silver dragees are rolling around on the floor in reckless abandon.

This is much harder than I thought it would be, but I did find eleven cookies that my grand-kids will like (they also think I tell good jokes).

The rest of the cookies ended up on the island of misfit cookies, because…

decorative piping is a skill…

…that I don’t have.

(Pssst, if you’re interested,  I did a bit of research and found someone on line who is really an expert at this.  Here is her link if you want to see how this should really be done.    www. sweetsugarbelle.com.)
