This year, I must admit, I haven’t really been into the Halloween thing. Perhaps it’s the shorter days and staying up too late catching up on seasons of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix. Ha! But, having two kids in preschool and 1st grade that both celebrate the holiday, I didn’t have an excuse to not making something! So, I thought I’d give some themed sugar cookies a shot. I am still getting the hang of royal icing. (And, I really am not that great at it. It takes a lot of patience and time- something I don’t always have a lot of!) These spider webs are pretty cute I thought, and not incredibly difficult. They do take time though! I made these the day before their party so they could sit overnight to ensure they were dry enough to stack and pack.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm Lydia and I live on a small island off the coast of Maine. As a mother of three, and an enthusiastic baker, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I hope you'll stop in and find some favorite recipes. From simple weeknight meals to hearty salads and indulgent desserts, there is a little bit of everything for all levels of cooking skills.
