Teeny Jackson is a character in my new book. She's a "cake lady," so I have been doing intensive research in my own kitchen. Armed with a rolling pin, a tube of cookie dough, and cookie cutters, I went to work--again.
The one in the center looks like a coat hanger.
I made one cookie that looked great. Even Dr. Gollum liked it. When I attempted to transfer it to a platter, it flipped upside down. Splat!
I got pink icing in the Yorkies' fur, and Young Bandwith thought they'd been injured.
Well, these were supposed to be pocketbooks! I went wild with the rosettes.
Jain's sister said that Judith Leiber has nothing to fear from Gollum. :-)
I didn't have to worry about anyone eating the cookies before I took photos.
"This is a handbag?" Dr. Gollum asked.
"Yes," I said, "with a bug on it."
Right about now, I'm wishing Teeny was a salad chef. :-)
When all else fails, bring out the cute dishes.
And put a bug in the bottom.
When my granddaughter comes for a visit this May, we'll bake all kinds of cookies.
Oops, the little moth flew in crooked.
That's the main reason I'm eager for spring...
... playing in the kitchen with Annabel.
Note: My kitchen has been deliriously happy all weekend.
