We had long weekend holiday and I thought I had ample time to bake the cakes for ABC, HCB and cookies for my friend. However, my daughter had a minor 'accident' - she cut her finger (quite badly!) while doing her project and i had to rush her to a 24-hr clinic at night. The doctor attending said it was minor and didn't give us anything and told us just to monitor. He didn't even have bandages in his clinic to dress up the wound and told me to go to the nearest pharmacy to buy and dress it up on my own. The next day, the cut on my daughter's finger was still red and bleeding, so i rushed her down to A&E and the doctor opened up the wound, examined it and said cut was quite deep and needed stitches!! I can't believe that the earlier doctor just brushed it off so lightly.
After all the worrying and rushing to the doctors, my baking plan went awry. I didn't have time to bake anything. However, i need to ice the cookies i've baked on Thursday...as I know i will be occupied the week later.
Hence decorated these baby shower cookies & lace cookies from Sunday night & over the next 2 nights till very late (or shall i say early morning..lol!). As usual, my husband nagged at me constantly (every 30mins interval after 10pm) if i'm done as it's getting late, that i needed to get to work the next day...otherwise, i will not have enough sleep and can't concentrate at work..and bad for my health..blah..blah..blah...
Baby Shower Cookies
Made these baby shower cookies for a friend. Her sister will be having a baby soon and because of some very Chinese tradition, she can't see her sister or baby till a month later after baby is born . I thought if my friend could give her sister some pretty cookies, that would be nice.
Heart-Shape Lace Cookies
Round-Shape Lace Cookies
These heart & round lace cookies are just my "practice-to-pipe" cookies. Saw some lovely lace cookies by my 2 flickr pals (Rosey Sugar & Jill Sugar) and thought i'll give it a go. Of course mine is no where near their standard..theirs are perfect and their piping always so delicate and pretty - I adore their work! I needed to practice piping round, so i made lots of round cookies. However, i didn't really do a very good job..my round outline turned out quite terrible..some jagged edges, some diamond shape, some oval..some just out of shape round.. These above that you see are the 6 best rounds that i've done! LOL! Gotta practice more!
