Friends with skills




My friend Megan came over yesterday and showed a group of us how to make fondant and work with it. It was so fun. It was marshmallow fondant so it actually even tasted pretty good, unlike regular fondant. It felt really nice to focus on some creativity - like I could actually feel the rusty wheels in my brain turning. Although I was thinking that it wasn't too hard and seemed pretty manageable, I realized it took me a few hours to make like 10 cookies! It was the creative process that was the holdup I think. And screaming kids. But anyhow, wouldn't a plate of these make you happy?!

FUN!! That is one of my next goals-learning how to use fondant. Which recipe did you use? Wish I was there doing that with you, screaming kids and all.

THE AWESOME ISOM COOKIES! THAT'S GREAT!

In the past few weeks I made the Peanut Butter and Jam cookies in last month's Martha Stuart magazine. They were a great hit - twice - and even pretty to look at, but not nearly as great as these.

so cute! Im telling you with the cupcakes you have made and now these cookies, Im thinkn you could have a little business once those kids grow up a little.

Too bad I missed out on that activity. That looks like a blast but maybe my three more screaming kids just might have put that over into the not so fun category. Those cookies are beautiful. Hope you're doing well.

Wow those are beautiful. I still think the marshmallow fondant is nasty. But beautiful and so easy to work with! Nice work.

Those cookies make me mad. They look so tasty, but butter is too freaking expensive here, so I only make cookies once or twice a year.

I'm glad you know how to make them now so you can make them for me when you come to Utah!
