I have something I need to say before I go any further: I have some of THE MOST AMAZING FRIENDS IN THE WORLD!
Yes, that required all caps. Yes, you might even consider that to be yelling. But it’s true, and I don’t mind yelling the truth from the rooftops!
I had a TON of cookie orders for Christmas this year. And on top of that, I decided that I wanted to do a market just before Christmas as well. Needless to say, I was BUSY! My friends came to the rescue! It’s amazing what a little bribery of fried chicken and moscato will get you around here! 😉
Most of the time I flooded while they piped. A couple of people worked up the bravery to pipe as well. Others helped roll and cut cookies with Aaron, and still others just sat around and kept me company while I worked. And they are ALL amazing. Most of them even drove from 45 minutes or more away to help out.
Did I mention I have amazing friends??
Anyway, here’s a selection of the cookies that were sold this year at the market and in gift boxes, etc. It was a crazy holiday season. There were over 1000 Christmas cookies decorated and sold! And somehow, this was all I managed to take for pictures!
Oh. Also, I celebrated the fact that I made these in advance quite a few times.
Never underestimate the power of friends, or royal icing transfers!
