Nine ladies dancing. NINE of them. That's nearly 12. Only 3 more days and the countdown will be over. This is a real countdown friends. This is not a drill. This is not a joke. It should not come as a surprise to you at this point in our blogging-internet-relationship-life-thing.... but I live in South Korea. And I mail Christmas presents. It's what I do. At least, it's what I do in November. I have to get my presents mailed by December 3rd for them to have any hope of actually arriving at their intended destination before the big day of love and giving. (And also eating of chocolates. It's a tradition at our house. I may have started it.) I have 3 more days. And 3 more blog posts. And then I shall have a large party at my house with ice cream and chocolate and I will call it The Annual Celebration Of All Presents Purchased. And then I'll have a giveaway on my blog so you can be excited with me.
Apparently, ruffles are kind of a big deal for dancers. At least for 2 year old dancers, they are. I used a #104 tip for the ruffles. Start with the cookie upside down if you are right handed. Line the tip up with the bottom (now the top) edge so that the wide end of the tip is facing her feet. Then make a bunch of squiggles. You can make the ruffles by moving up and down as you come across the cookie, or like I did by piling the icing back on top of itself in waves as you come across. It's up to you and how you like your ruffles. Do one line of ruffle with thick icing and let it dry for about 30 minutes. And then follow up with another line of ruffles.
2. Flood the dress with red icing. Use a toothpick as necessary to guide it into the ruffles.
3. While the red is drying, fill the remaining areas, being careful not to overfill. To avoid craters use 23 second icing or put in front of a fan, dehydrator or heat gun to set the icing. Allow to dry overnight.
4. Add ribbon sash and two adorable little eyes. Add a mouth if you like. (I kind of wish I hadn't...but that one is your choice. I won't judge you either way.)
