This Open Thread is Making More Royal Icing

So I got the brilliant idea to make really fancy sugar cookies for the holidays this year. I’m pretty handy with Photoshop, I thought some of my art skill might transfer to icing. 

It did not.

Terribly ugly sugar cookie with yellow icing and big pink globs on it. Plus glitter sugar.
Just like Martha Stewart, no?
Yellow iced gingerbread person, covered in glitter sugar.
Would you be interested in a tutorial on pee colored icing? No?

So tonight I’m mixing up another mixerful of royal icing. I will master this. What are you doing tonight, readers?

My sister is having a baby. It’s my first niece or nephew (my sister thinks it’s a girl) and the first grandbaby on both sides. I’ve never been one to squee over baby stuff at ALL, but mom and I went into Pottery Barn Kids today and I wanted to buy all the things. Shit’s expensive though. Now I’m trying to find cute things online. Also, since we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl, finding gender neutral baby clothes is HARD!

Do you have an cloves? Clove oil is a natural anesthetic, and it tastes good. A little burny, but still pleasant. Bite down on a whole clove near your bunk tooth. Then keep it in your mouth and suck on it.

Suddenly, this sounds dirty.

I have shitty teeth, and clove oil is better than even whiskey for killing the pain. Clove oil AND whiskey is probably ideal, though.
