Spring Cookie Bouquet

What I learned this week? Believe it or not, making 5 cookies takes just as long as making 20. Normally I ask people to let me know at least 2 weeks out when they're going to need cookies. If I'm not too busy, I can do it in a week. How long can making cookies really take? Well, I have kids, and carpool, and errands, and carpool, and meetings, and carpool. The life of a Stay at Home Mom. Sometimes I swear I would be so much less busy if I just went back to work. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment.
So, my friend called and said she just needed a cookie bouquet, and oh yeah, she needed it tomorrow. There are very few people I would do this for. Maybe 2. One is my mom, but she would never ask. She's one of those weird people that don't like cookies. And her daughter is a cookie decorator. Go figure. I'm sure a shrink would have a field day with that.
Well, for those of you that aren't cookie decorators, the icing takes 24 hrs to dry before it can be packaged or stacked. So, I am very proud to say that this cookie bouquet was ready roughly 26 hours later.
 Oh, and I did get some sleep.
