A bit of sunshine....

I know it's getting to be fall, but after Hurricane Ike, I'm feeling the need for a little sunshine. These daisies always look cheerful and sunny to me.
We have our power back on, luckily, but the stores are out of butter. Darn it! No baking for a while.
Daisy cookies are really easy....just pipe the outline and middle with royal icing, thin another color and fill.

I WAS READY THOUGH I BAKED ALL THE DRY GOODS IN MY CABINET SO WE ARE STILL EATING CHOCOLATE CAKE AND CORNBREAD MUFFINS TODAY TEEHEE!

  2. Bridget, glad y'all made it through IKE! For several days we thought IKE was headed our way and I stocked up. We got a little wind and that was about it. I was relieved but scared for everyone in Houston, Galveston and surrounding areas. I am planning on heading to Houston in two weeks. I hope things are a little back to normal. It will take a while to get things going again for some towns. The thing I am worried about is the gas supply and getting to Houston and back. We are supposed to be staying in downtown Houston and going to Braves/Astro games the last weekend of September. My son, daughter and I are meeting my husband there because he is with the Atlanta team now. We are supposed to be bringing him back home after a very long baseball season. Y'all take care and hope butter is back on the shelves soon. It is hard to live without butter AND baking!

  3. Hi~
    Love your blog. Your cookies are incredible, so pretty, and creative! I recently learned how to make and pipe royal icing...not the easiest thing and VERY time intensive.

    I read through a few of your posts seems you have wonderful family and
    creative, too!

    Glad to hear that you're dry and safe! Bummer about the butter though it would be a good thing for me if they ran out here! I've been doing too much baking and need to lose a few. Ha-ha!

    Your new fan!

  4. Ingrid...thank you! :) Boy, I just checked your blog and that Snickerdoodle Cake is all I can think about right now!

    Montee...I think *hope* the gas situation will be worked out by the time you get here. Everyone is in a little bit of panic mode, not to mention all of the extra gas people are using to fill their generators. My advice would be to look for gas on side streets near neighborhoods. The station near our house only had lines about 4 deep, but at the grocery store near a major road, they were about 50 deep. Have fun at the game!!! We missed our last one...we had tickets to last Saturday's game, but obviously Ike had other plans! :)

  8. Kookie...I'm in north Houston. We have power now, but no phone or TV. Kind of nice in a way. :) The good news is, the stores now have butter! :)

    I guess Ike made his presence known in a lot of the country. It sounds like Louisiana really had a bad time of it.

Bridget ,have you ever used the fondant writers by Wilton?I also would like to know where you purchased your fluted square cookie cutter.I order one and when I recieved it it was very,very small.

  10. Hey Kookie...

    No, I have never used the Wilton fondant writers. They sound interesting!

    Someone else asked about the cookie cutter a while ago and I checked on it. It looks like it is not being made anymore. It was a Wilton cutter...a metal one with the plastic around the top. Maybe one will pop up on ebay? :)
