Valentine’s Day Cookies FAIL and Blog-Aholic Award

Hello everyone!

Today’s post was going to be about Valentine’s Day cookies!

I spent all the afternoon baking heart shaped decorated cookies and I wanted to share it with you BUT something went terribly wrong. I bought red food gel coloring that turned out to be a very bright pink, to make it red like I wanted it, my mom gave me another red food coloring she had, this one was powdered. I wasn’t sure about using it but I decided to give it a shot. Two things happened:

1. It didn’t help making it red, it looked exactly the same.

2. It made it taste horrible! So salty and disgusting.

I’m out of royal icing so I couldn’t make more, I’ll have to get more tomorrow and finish the cookies. I’ll be posting about them tomorrow or on saturday.


Now, on the bright, happy side.

I got nominated for the Blog-Aholic Award by the lovely Beauty Knows No Flaws! This is the third award nomination, it’s crazy! Thank you so much for supporting my blog.
