Birthday Baking

It's my Grandma's {insert significant birthday number here} birthday!!

(Like I'd "out" her like that, haha)

Well, not really TODAY, but it's on Monday. I'm fairly certain she doesn't read my blog so I can share what I made for her without risking her finding out. I've really been getting into making cookies and have shipped some for a friend's major birthday before, so I decided to do the same thing for my Grandma. She's quite the baker herself, so it's a more than appropriate gift. That and she gets really mad at me when I send her presents. I hoping that the Baked Goods Clause results in an acceptance of my gift because it's homemade. *crosses fingers*

They turned out really well but the BEST PART was my discovery of EDIBLE MARKERS!! It makes writing SO much easier. And neater. 

When I think of my Grandma, she's often wearing a shade of purple and always has some sparkle. 

Now they're all wrapped up and being shipped via Purolator for the party on Saturday!

I think it's safe to say that I have a mild obsession with royal icing. I wish there were more things happening so I can make more! Well, actually there is another birthday swiftly approaching, but the logistics of mailing cookies to Australia are considerable (sorry Gal-From-The-Land-Down-Under)...boo. 

Ah well, next time!
