First try at some decorated COOKIES!!!

Well everyone what do you think of my first try at decorating cookies...I had fun but realized i have a lot of learning to do...A little sloppy yes, but this is a dry run. I will be making some onesies for my daughter who is hosting a baby shower...Of course i volunteered to make them. I don't know what i was thinking when i did that but i just can't help myself...I found this site that has the most amazing cookies...i just had to try. I used both her cookie recipe and her royal icing recipe... Sweetopia has the most informative videos on how to .....THANK GOODNESS...very very helpful.
Now on to the issues i faced this time around. When making the cookies the instructions say to roll out between two pieces of parchment paper...which i did but the parchment was sliding all over on me...then on to the icing..i tried to get the right consistency but it dries fast and it still was a little thick..I'll have to fix that next time..I do need some practice on piping but other than all that i still managed to get them done...and what's even better is everyone liked them.

Thanks for dropping by and i'll see ya next time...

Awesome job on the cookies!
Now you know how to 'fix' the sliding issue (lean on parchment or put non-slip mat or damp cloth underneath), for the consistency I think you already know... just a little more water.
You did really well - I'm looking forward to seeing the onesies!

They look yummy to me. My latest thing to try has been cupcakes but cookies look like fun too. Thanks for sharing them with us.
