THE DAY I WAS SO PROUD OF MY COOKIES I BUILT AN EASEL FOR THEM. | The Art of Doing StuffThe Art of Doing Stuff
A couple of years ago at Christmas I made a bunch of gingerbread cookies that were all in the shape of my favourite farm animals. Which would be all farm animals except the rat.
They turned out beautiful and I loved them. They were perfect for me and I was sick of making my usual Gingerbread men wearing a thong. But when I put them out on a plate or even a platter they didn’t look nearly as impressive. Therefore I didn’t look as impressive. Now, when you have everyone over for dinner there are two things you want to accomplish in the small amount of time that people are in your home. 1) You want them to feel at home and welcome. 2) You want them to be insanely jealous of you, your life, your home, your food and how effortless and impressive you are all at the same time. Also it’s nice if one of your guests who lives really far away in a place that doesn’t have mail service accidentally forgets their beautiful scarf at your house.
