Umbrella Cookies: Don’t rain on my parade!
Posted by mrmykie
Don’t tell me not to live, just sit and putter; Life’s candy and the sun’s a ball of butter…
So it is Sunday, I am not feeling at my best due to a trip to Birmingham for a night of dancing. Birmingham BTW doesn’t have a Vivienne Westwood shop! Britian’s second city?! Not in my book! They’re living like animals, ANIMALS!!
Speaking of animals: A bull made of jelly beans…
So, as I was saying, not feeling tip-top but I was compelled to bake something. I’ve not made iced cookies for jelly bean donkeys years!
And yes, I know it’s summer and some people may question my decision to make umbrellas; to these people I say “No cookies for you!“
