Hello there! Yes, I finally had the chance to write again :). Anyways, this week I made a Cookie cake! It was really good...I received great feedback so it must be good. This Cookie Cake is huge and thick, so you can have a small slice and it is very filling. Also, many people can eat from just one of these so they are great for events/parties. I decided to decorate the cake with pink frosting to add a lighter look to the huge cookie. It's the biggest cookie I've ever made/eaten that is 100% homemade!
(I adapted this recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything, but I did change quite a few things!)
1. I FINALLY finished all of my testing for the school year! I really can't believe it, I am almost finished, just a few days left. I really wonder what I'm doing this summer. I mean I know that I will have a lot of time to bake new things, and swimming is always an option. But I tan so easily that I am thinking this year I should make a swimming schedule so I won't get way too tan haha!
2. Well of course when I was taking pictures of the Cookie Cake, Pounder found it in his interest to try and eat it. He wanted to smell it so I had to be fast before he actually noticed the cake on the table. But when I lifted the cake off the table, this is the face I got from him:
I mean he makes himself look so cute. But I had to say no to him of course, he can't have cookies or chocolate. Oh! I almost forgot, here are some pictures I took of him the other day, they are too adorable.
3. I really want to make Ice Cream this Summer. Theres just something about the idea that makes it seem so cool. And once I get Ice Cream off my list, then I will try Ice Cream sandwiches. Oh how much I want to make Ice Cream! But I need an Ice Cream Maker attachment for my KitchenAid. I also really want to make Macarons. They are so delicious! So it would be really cool to be able to make them.
