I'm baaaaack! Still busy, but I'm back!

The craft sale at the community club is over, so I now have time to show you what I have been working on!
There are so many things to show you and since you all have been soooooo patient - I'll show you the best thing first!

For a few years now I have been trying to make the "Ultimate Christmas Cookie".  I was at a holiday party a few years back and they had these beeeooootiful cookies that were almost too pretty to eat.  I always wanted to make some just like them.
I finally succeeded this year.  The comments at the craft fair were "They are too pretty to eat!".  So I know I achieved my goal.

Let me know what YOU think.

I found a delicious sugar cookie recipe and made my cookies one day.  It took one whole day to line the cookie edges, flood the inside (wait for it to set), cut out the fondant flowers and paint them with edible luster dust, then decorate with the white icing and add the candy pearls.  Once the icing was good and set, I packaged them up.  You can see them in their packaging in the craft fair photos.
