Love Letter Cookies by cakecrumbs Love Letter Cookies by cakecrumbs
I'm finally baking again! Easing into it with something small (I swear my head is still on vacation - as is my partner's, clearly, since he just woke up and told me I needed to go to bed or we'd be late for the coach!).

I am terrible at piping. This year it is one of the skills I've put as a priority on my list to learn. It's much easier to practise on cookies than cakes so I've decided to enter the world of decorated sugar cookies. You'll probably be seeing lots from me this year. I want to highlight this especially for those of you watching me who say they wish they could do what I can do. This is something I'm no good at and will be practising to become better at. As you (hopefully) see my progression I hope it reinforces when I say that all skills are learned, take time and need practise. We can all reach those goals.

These are my first. They're love letter themed chocolate cookies for my partner for Valentine's Day.

Yayy, you're baking again! So good to see you back btw (: I've been busy myself lately so I haven't had the chance to check up on my dA stuff but here I am trying to go through that massive deviantWATCH inbox x] That's going to be one crazy task to go through!

And I love these cookies, would love it even more if I could munch on them :heart:

Isn't it amazing how quickly that fills up! When I first joined I couldn't understand how people complained to groups about their inbox being too full. Now I end up not looking through half of them cause whoa. I can't keep up.

And it's a shame really, because sometimes I just end up deleting the whole deviation stack. So really what I end up doing I unwatch the deviation of the group and I just go round watching specific artists whose art I'm really interested in x')

I end up doing the same haha. And then I feel really bad when new groups request my membership cause I don't have time to keep up with it all so I end up saying no.

I am so envious of those who are masters a stringwork. I hope to be able to achieve it one day. But that is not this day.

Yes! Now I just need lots of excuses to decorate stuff, ha ha.

I know, right? Apparently my great grandmother was very good at that kind of stuff- she even used to own a bakery.
