175 Wedding Cookies!
Well, It is a bit of a blur, but after arriving home from Hawaii on Wednesday (overnight flight with a little nap), I was too tired to start the cookies, so waited until Thursday (for a Friday, 4 p.m. wedding)! YIKES!!! It was my niece's wedding and the cookies were my pleasure to make:) The whole endeavor was quite the whirlwind, but at least I had two Kitchenaid mixers to speed me along!
Cookies were stacked all over the place...the counter, the table(in the background), another spare table from the garage(cleaned off, of course), and a card table:)
It took me until 4 a.m. to ice all of the big, 5 inch cookies(with breaks here and there)! I grabbed four hours of sleep, which gave them time to dry:)
Doing the details was fun, but I hope I didn't get too sloppy as the time slipped away...
My husband helped out with the packaging, and we didn't finish until 2:30 p.m., then put the "pedal to the metal" to make the wedding on time which was over an hour away!
I sort of finished getting myself ready, in the car:)
I must say...my husband was a lifesaver! He surprised me and left work early to come home and be my "errand boy" running here and there buying me supplies! :) I cringe to think of the outcome if he hadn't shown up! LIVE and LEARN! :)
I was so happy when we made it on time to the ceremony, and later, when each place at each table had a cookie:) WHEW! I just wish I had taken a picture!!!
