This week I decided to do something very basic for the food distribution.  The cookie cutter did most of the work!  I'm still amazed at how some of these cookie designs we have seen so many times still bring so much joy to people.

I had wanted to airbrush the rinds and try some gradation but opted against.  Cleaning supplies are still too hard to come by here and I am very very messy with the airbrush.  So I decided to do some marbling on the rind.  It worked out just okay.  The darker green was a bit too thick so it didn't quite do what I had pictured.

I also had an epic fail (not pictured) with the seeds.  I don't recall exactly why but I thought it would be a good idea to have larger seeds made from royal icing transfers.  All I can say is it looked ridiculous.  My husband thought the seeds were chocolate chips.  My sister thought they were raisins.  Needless to say, I scrapped the idea and my husband ate the evidence.  I think my lesson here is not to commit to decorating ideas if I have had more than two glasses of wine.

Yes!! why?

Lol.  I didn't mean to ask a literal question.  I was agreeing with you that watermelons are delicious in the summer and we were in the summer season.  It was weird phrasing on my part.  Apologies - I do that a lot.  My husband is Swedish and when I end a sentence questionably, he gives an answer and asks why I asked 😂.  He'll be thrilled to know he's not the only person I do it to!!

Oh ... I think that's funny! I always enjoy reading your reports on your cookies. It’s so often written funny. I like this!!!  And I'm glad for you that despite all your hard work you haven't lost your sense of humor !! ❤️
