solar system

It has come to my attention that some of you think that I am hating on myself. It's not true. I completely adore myself. In a non-creepy way. (Because there is nothing worse than creeping yourself out.) And just to prove it to you, I'm going to tell you one way that I am totally amazing today.

 I made a cookie replica of the solar system with royal icing and a toothpick.

Okay, so my choice may have been made out of laziness as I was contemplating all the bowls I would have to use to color the icing and the bags and tips and couplers and...and, well, let's just stick with the positive here. The solar system. Royal icing. Toothpick. Done. I am amazing.

You know what's NOT amazing? My round cutters getting bent into odd non-round shapes even with very careful and gentle use. Imagine the seasons we would have if Earth really was this shape!


Although fairly accurate, I must stress that this solar system is not to scale. As much as I'm sure you would like to use these cookies to teach yourself or your loved ones more about the universe we live in, I'm afraid you will have to go to more reliable sources. You know, like Weekly World News. I hear that Bat Boy may have discovered a new planet...
