Just have to vent.....

My daughter's kindergarten teacher asked me to make pain sugar cookies, in two different shapes for them to decorate at their Christmas party. They need 22 of each, so each kid has two to decorate. No problem right, easy!! Well, it was, until I decided to make 24 of each, leaving a little wiggle room for breakage. There was breakage alright...by me!!! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif I broke 3 gingerbread men, forcing me to make 3 new ones. Well, now I am 3 short on Christmas trees........UUUGGGG!!!!!! Seriously, I have to make a whole new batch of NFSC for 3 cookies!!!!!! Since it is already 10:30 and my husband is eyeing me for some alone time I guess it will have to wait til tomorrow.

The things we do for our kids!!!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

And just to add insult to injury two kids will be out sick that day, but only if you make them. If you don't they will all be well and in attendence. Maybe buy 3 from the local bakery or use refridge dough, they won't know.

Sounds like what happened to me last year when i made grad cookies for my kid's kindergarten graduation. I made a cap with everyone's name on them and then the tassels all broke DURING PACKAGING......i was almost there!! That night, I had to make new batches of cookies but i cut off the tassels so i wouldnt have that problem again. Then i had to use fondant cuz there wasn't any time for RI to dry. What an ordeal.

.........and mom2twogrlz, my husband is eyeing me right now for alone time while i'm typing this........LOL

I did that with some cookies a few months ago so I bought some refrigerator dough. Guess what, the kids that got the refrigerator dough went home and told their parents they were the best cookies they ever ate. I never told anyone any different but the refrigerator dough sure won out over NFSC. icon_biggrin.gif

Well, tonight I dropped a whole tray of stacked undecorated cookies in the driveway -- so the neighbor's giant Newfie who was outside had himself a treat.

cindy58, your story brought a chuckle as I remembered a disaster turned fond memory. Back in my single days, I baked a big fancy birthday cake for the guys in the next door apartment. I balanced it carefully across the driveway and yup, dropped it! I didn't want to cry, (that's a lie, I wanted to bawl), but rang the doorbell and invited them all out with forks and we ate if off the pavement, lit candles and all. (Naturally, we ate only the part that didn't come in contact with the ground). I think that was just about the most fun birthday I ever attended.
