This morning I delivered some cookies to Tobias’ school for a Cinco de Mayo themed Teacher Appreciation Luncheon and they were just too cute not to share!
I got the recipe from The Alison Show last valentine’s day, and I recommend buying her veryyyy thorough video/e-book to anyone who wants to get started staying up late at night making perfectly perfect sugar cookies with royal icing.
When I was taking them to the school, the woman who opened the door for me looked at them wide-eyed and said,
“You made these?! You should go into business!”
and when I delivered them to the two PTA moms that were orchestrating the event, I received the same looks of surprise and,
“You made these?! Oh, you’re our new favorite. You could sell these.”
When I made first or second batch (I’ll wrangle up the photos of all that I’ve made to date for another post), over a year ago, I talked to Mark about getting better at it and maybe one day, selling them. Of course, there was this cross-country move that put everything at a standstill, but I’ve decided I AM going to write up a business plan and start scheduling out deadlines for me to start a baking business.
My Granny, whose passing I wrote about when I mentioned that I keep her photo in my kitchen, owned a pie shop for years. My other grandma (whom we so-southernly call Meemaw :)) worked there, too. Both of my grandmothers can be credited for so much of the woman I am today, so every time I think about following in her footsteps of starting my own business, I keep crying!
They’re happy tears, though. Happy, exciting, you-just-wait-and-see tears.
