You heard me, I said since I don't like it, I made it.
Because then I am not tempted to shove a handful of them in my jacket pocket and go for a "walk."
The same applies for chocolate covered pretzels (which, I made about 300 today and I probably won't eat more than 10,) because they really don't seem that special to me.
Well, it was a disaster.
After about 10 minutes, I really had had it. I didn't want to mess with the proportion of flour to dough to make it unsticky enough to roll out and cut.
After all, there was no chocolate, so what do I care?
I quickly got fed up with it and just plopped little balls of dough (you could forget about cute little ginger snowmen!) onto the sheet.
I did try to salvage them by decorating them with icing....only I didn't get the confectioner's sugar to milk ratio quite right.
And also, my "snowflake," looks like a spider's web that has been desecrated by some unknown insect.
Apparently I should see this thing called "real snow," to become a better decorator.
One day, folks, one day.
Tomorrow I am making my dad's carrot raisin birthday cake, and then making Bakerella's Cake Balls using The Pioneer Woman's Chocolate Sheet cake recipe. The cake balls are for my parent's sunday school party on Friday. Woohoo!
