The start of my leave and sugar cookies

Advertisemen


Okay, so my maternity leave has officially started and I am feeling a bit lost. Baby isn't due for a couple of weeks, but my tired, oversized body is telling me that I can't do a heck of a lot. So what's a girl to do?

Of course, I wanted to bake. Specifically though, I wanted to try my hand at decorated sugar cookies. I have been seen so many beautiful designs that inspired me I couldn't wait to give it a go. So, here's my first attempt. They aren't that pretty and they are very messy, but I had a great time. The cookie recipe is from Sweetopia and the icing recipe (egg-white free!) was from Amanda at I am baker (I substituted light corn syrup for glucose syrup and it seemed to work)
