A good friend of mine had planned on making an elaborate birthday cake for my daughter’s third birthday. I had actually planned the party around her vision for the cake, which was an enchanted garden theme. Life kind of got in the way of the cake making, so I had to improvise.
At the time, I had just started following Annie’s Eats blog, and was inspired by her tutorial on making cookies with royal icing. I decided that instead of ordering a cake, I would make cupcakes and RI cookies.
Here are my first ever cookies. I was more focused on taking pictures of other details of the party, but I managed to get a few of the cookies.
