I took full advantage of Andi's love for Phinehas last night while trying to accomplish some time consuming Cake ball preparations. Not having ingredients and sharing a relatively small kitchen with several other bakers was challenging, but I came home with a nice sampling of shortbread cookies. Thanks to Tiff and Mom who understand the concept of cookie exchange better than I do!
Lessons we learned from our first ever bake exchange...
-plan to bake a cookie instead of making your son's birthday cake...
-bring extras of things like measuring cups and spatulas and mixing bowls
-dressing up in crazy aprons and chef hats is fun
-mom is picky about her christmas music selections (she feels Tony Bennett is a little over played for her liking)
-a little prep could make things go smoother
-tiffany's cookie press needs C batteries
-start earlier (better yet make it an all day affair)
-jolly jumper was a great invention
-and so was static guard... I needed some of that!
