Okay...so you're going to make a cookie banner. I mean...you are, right? Okay, look, I get it. Not everyone wants to eat their party decorations. That's cool. I totally understand. But, let's just suspend reality for a minute and pretend that everyone in the world wants to make a cookie banner. And that you care what I think. And that you are willing to let me offer you some advice.
2. Don't make heavy cookies. That's just asking for trouble.
4. Use a ribbon or twine instead of string or fishing line. The thinner the line, the more pressure there will be on that small area of the cookie between the hole and the edge. It's like they always say -- a woman in high heels weighs more than an elephant. Actually... I'm pretty sure that's not it. But its something like that. And the point is that you should use ribbon. Or an elephant will eat your cookies. Oh, and don't pull the ribbon too tight on the back of the cookies. Or the world will end. Maybe.
Really, I don't want to scare anyone off. I only had those two cookies from the test run break, even with a softer cookie recipe and extreme humidity. Everything else went according to plan. And there might be something wrong inside of me...but I seriously cannot wait to make a Halloween cookie banner!
