Just Married Wedding Cookies


I moved into a house that is 30 years old. The curtains in the living room are also that old. They are huge and heavy and I think that they actually built the house around them. They are teal on one side with a teal floral print on the other. The carpet was also teal. And the tile around the fireplace.... pink! (I'm just kidding, the tile is teal just like everything else.)  The carpet has already met its demise. The fireplace tile is so lonely without the carpet that I'm probably going to have to find a new home for it soon. The curtains were too tired to care. So I took them down to let them rest for awhile. And now I don't know what to do with them. They are double sided and they were twisted into some strange decorative pattern that basically used 3 times as much fabric as I would need to wrap my entire house... if the occasion ever arose.

They are lying in a sad little (huge) heap in my living room. I want to throw them away, but I can't help thinking about all those starving children in Africa that could surely use a teal patterned curtain to block out the heat of the sun. I've thought about donating them to Curtains for Cancer to raise money for science research. But, as it turns out, it's not a real charity, so no one would take them. I'm afraid I might have to save them for Halloween and make lederhosen and dresses for my children and convince them to frolic and sing at the same time.

I won't be saving these cookies though. They would get stale and they can't sing and also they don't look anything like the Von Trapp Family. But they are really easy to make. And fun.

And... I actually made a low-quality video to prove it to you.

But if you aren't into videos... I also made this. Use 15 count icing for everything except the ties for the cans. Let it dry between each step. Repeat hundreds of times.
