Xmas cookie fun

These were SO much fun to make. My dear friend Laura invited a group of us over this weekend to make some Xmas cookies. She provided all the supplies for fondant and royal icing and taught the basics on how to make these beauties. The stocking is of course for my nephew Jack, the snowflake has edible glittah on it and the holly is my least fave because I did white leaf lines and were I to do it over, I would do dark green or leave them out completely. We also made truffles that were DELICIOUS....one bite and you'd have to get peeled off the ceiling. But hey, they were yummy....caffeine high and all. :)

Sorry I've been MIA this past week. I've been working late at my job every night (new program), finishing up my Xmas cards, baking like mad and shopping every single day on my way home from work. Oh but my new camera will be here this week....so of course I'll have to take pics of some new cards and see what you all think. xoxo
