Royal cookies and creepy princesses.



This weekend Anna, her new best friend Eleanor, her mom, Meredith, and our event coordinator, Erin, all went to a local bakery to decorate princess cookies.  We (I mean Erin) RSVP-ed for us and everything.  The girls dressed in their best gowns, jewels, and crowns and we hopped in the car.  They had a blast, although weren't quite sure about the "princesses" at the bakery.  Snow White, Belle, and Cinderella were all there.  The poor high school-ish age girls dressed in the princess costumes seemed a little overwhelmed by all the little girls bouncing everywhere.  I think our girls could see right through those cheap satin dresses they wore...not literally.  They didn't want to come near the "princesses" and just wanted to make sure they got enough icing on their cookies.  I'm pretty sure 3/4 of an inch of icing on the top of a cookie is plenty.  After they both sucked on the icing squeezers and licked the spatula things they used for spreading, we left them for the next bunch of girls to use.  I hope they washed those...we were in the first batch to come in and there were three more batches to come.  

The finished masterpiece.  Can you see the layers?

Those princesses were SUPER creepy. I'm glad they enjoyed the cookies though. I just love those girls :) Did she get a sugar high off the cookie?
