So I was a wee bit busy before Christmas, and never quite got around to posting these...
Last year was The Muffin's first year of ballet classes, and for the end of year concert, all the little ballerinas in her class played the part of the "little Alices" in Wonderland (this was part of a larger "Ballet Wonderland" item which spanned several classes and pieces of music - The Muffin's class did the part where Alice has shrunk after drinking from the little bottle). It was very cute, and we were so proud of The Muffin for going out on that big stage and trying her very best! She actually did a great job too! (because I am not biased At All).
So anyway, for the dance school's end-of-year party, I baked and decorated these cookies.
They were gone within about five seconds.
So it was a good thing that before the party, the White Rabbit and I had a little picnic first...
We also packaged a few up as a gift for The Muffin's ballet teacher - I thought she was going to cry! The little ballerina cookies were made to look a bit like the costumes the little girls wore in the concert. They were also sparkly, which Never Shows Up In Photos. This is Very Annoying.
I really enjoyed making these cookies; they were so cute, and (with the exception of the ballerina) they were super easy to make. Most of the icing was 20-second icing, and all the black details were simply drawn on afterward with a food marker.
