And sometimes they don’t.
I don’t hate the cookies, they just didn’t turn out quite as well as the last time I made firework cookies:
See, I had these flower-shaped cookies leftover from a set of awesome peacock cookies I did last week. And I was sure that I could make some pretty great fireworks from them.
I wanted a more blue-grey background than all black. Mostly because of how messy black icing makes your mouth. But also because I felt like it was a little more ‘dusky’ for a fireworks show.
Then, my other colors just really didn’t work out… and I just wasn’t feeling it.
So, my 6-year-olds gave it their own try. I think I like these just as much. Next time, I’ll just hand over the decorating duties to them!
Maybe I should stick with these Patriotic Cake Pops for the Fourth of July instead??
