Witch Hat?


Since Landon (Sam) wasn't allowed to go trick or treating, we came up with an alternative evening of fun. Dinner at Chili's then a marathon of "The Joe Shmoe Show". Boring to some, but a night of bliss for an exhausted mother. I wanted to do something domestic since we didn't even dress Landon or ourselves up. I am a self declared "Miss Crafty". Usually I think I'm pretty talented in this area, however, I was quite disappointed with the outcome of my latest project. My sister gave me a simple, but cute idea for witch hat cookies. I bought the "ingredients" and was excited to start. I in no way claim to be coordinated (as previously proven), but how hard could frosting a cookie be anyway??? You have no idea. I started, and just kept going. With each cookie I thought it was some bazaar fluke that they were turning out so ugly. After an emergency call to my sister to see if she had the problem, I found out that I had been doing them wrong. They were actually much simpler than I had imagined. Since I can't fathom throwing away chocolate of any kind, the ugly cookies were quickly donated to the crazy kids that Sam works with at the mental institute. I "made" a batch of the correctly frosted cookies witch were a huge hit! We had friends over and stayed up way too late watching what may be the funniest reality show ever. I highly recommend it (watching the show, not staying up too late)! Here is a picture of how a witch hat cookie should look:

First of all, I had a writing error in my last comment, I obviously meant 14 weeks, not months. Secondly, I have to say that that show was a good one. I remember they did one a long time ago, did they ever have a second season?

That footprint/ghost is adorable! Was that your idea? Your cookies turned out better than mine because I didn't even get mine made at all! Maybe next year!
