Every year one of my hubby's friends has a big Memorial Weekend get together that goes from Saturday to Monday. People bring their families and their campers and tents and have a fun filled weekend of eating and playing and socializing.
So approximately 28 hours ago we glanced at the invite and realized it said, "Bring a dish to share."
So my brilliant idea was, "Oh, I'll just whip up some cookies!"
I have never been known for my intelligence.
I have been baking and decorating cookies for the last 6 hours. I have got no time left to do my hair or wash my clothes. At least my nails were already done.
The invite said, "Join us for a Weekend of Family & Friends and Campouts".
I didnt have a cookie cutter for the fire so I just made one quick.
I tried out that whole wet on wet technique that everyone else is so good at for the fire. I like it!
Quick little happy accident I have to share… I didnt have time to go and pop all the air bubbles in the logs, but I love how it seems to add texture! Its almost even better now! 🙂
I know its not technically a 'dish' to share, but I hope they like it!
And I hope you enjoy your Memorial Weekend and a BIG thank you to all the Veterans!
I used my favorite Cookie Recipe and favorite Icing Recipe.
These are awesome! You are so talented! And I do love the logs as well. Some of the best inventions and ideas come out of us being in a hurry. Great job and I hope everyone loved them!! Thanks for sharing!
QUESTION: You say you didn’t have a cookie cutter for them so you made one. How did you make it?? Genius!
I completely JUST found your blog and fell in love. I went through every page tonight and was in awe. I am attempting my first rainbow cupcake endeavor tomorrow and you inspired me to go for it!!
I can’t wait to keep up with you and all your beautiful work!
love the fire
i made cookies for memorial day too
Although I may not always leave a comment, I do love your work and check out your blog daily. You are truly amazing. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful creations.
Love the fire effect! You never cease to impress. 🙂 I’m sure this was more appreciated that a traditional ‘dish.’
These cookies are so awesome! 🙂
These are TOOOOOOO cool! Or should I say hot?? I like them all packed up in that tin bucket, what a great way to present them. Hope you had a good weekend!
These are the cutest and most delicious-looking memorial day cookies I have ever seen. I just want to curl up to a camp fire and eat these cookies one after another.
