I have really been wanting to practice some sanding on my cookies.....so I went straight to one of my favorite cookie decorating gurus and found an idea for sanding pumpkins! Bridget made these pumpkin cookies last year...and I loved her color choices and thought it would be a great way for me to practice my sanding techniques. Finding the sanding sugar (the specific brand I wanted....and the color I wanted) was actually harder than the process itself. I tried to find fine sanding sugar in white at Michael's and Hobby Lobby and D&D, but to no avail. So J and I had to drive a bit further to my favorite baking store...where we actually found just what I was looking for (after having to stop at the train tracks and make a 5 minute detour out of our way after realizing the street entrance was blocked off due to the city's annual chili fest occurring that night). But, I guess that extra time was worth it... I LOVE this sanding sugar!!! And as for J....he was thrilled beyond belief that we got stuck at those train tracks. He LOVED watching that long train go by!
A few more fall things and fun cookies to share this week!
