Snow Day!

This past Saturday, 12/19/09, we experienced what they are calling the blizzard of 2009 in the DC metro area! The snow started Friday night and didn't stop until late Saturday night. I heard that some areas got up to 22 inches! Anyway, it was a great excuse for me to bake some Christmas cookies and get into the holiday spirit! I started with a batch of roll out sugar cookies that I decorated with tinted royal icing and some colored sugars!


Toward the end of the batch, I decided to make a few high heel cookies just for fun!


Just for variety, I also made some Russian tea cakes (a personal favorite of mine!)


And then some, "crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside" Chocolate Chip Cookies (My bf Rod's favorite!)


I got some cute Holiday tins from Michael's craft store and packaged them up and topped them off with gift tags ;)




Merry Christmas!

Flower Cupcakes


I think the rosette cupcakes turned out cuter ;)


Here is a close up of the white flower.
