Icing Icing Everywhere

My son's kindergarten class is hosting a bake sale this Friday and all the parents were asked to bring something Valentine-ish to sell. I am making cake pops (2 kinds if I have time) and these cute jello cups from here.

I also made sugar cookies so I could test out my new heart cookie cutters. I am soooo glad I made them because at 10 pm tonight I remembered that I am supposed to bring Valentine treats for their class party tomorrow!


I did something new this time. Instead of using flour to roll out the dough, I used powdered sugar. So awesome!! Taste is definitely different!

So I made some hot pink icing for me to eat by the finger-full for the cookies and thought I would flood a few of them. Here are two of them made into a cookie sandwich.


Step 1: Place a rack on a plate (to catch the drips), and put your cookie on the rack.


Step 2: Pour the icing over the cookies. I used a small measuring cup. Check all the way around the cookies so you find any missed spots.


Step 3: Carefully move the cookies to a clean rack to dry. Now is the time to put your sprinkles on! I used red and pink sprinkles on these sandwich cookies.

And then I iced and iced and iced some more. Nothing super fancy, just enough for a bunch of kids to inhale eat in 30 seconds flat!


So now they dry all night long. And I sleep. Hello lovely bed!

Um, those look so amazing. I can't bake because I would eat more than I gave away. But I love to eat other people's bakery! haha
