This story started actually a few weeks ago. I follow a blog where they were featuring royal icing cookies as a favor at a party, it got me thinking that would be a fun favor, so I thought, why don't I see if I can make cookies like that!
Turns out I can (I mean seriously this is not a hard one so a more complicated design is probably not likely, but I still think my cake teacher would be proud)!

Since I was just trying it out, I only made 4 cookies, one small one and 3 bigger ones. Well when I found out my cute little nephew was coming to town, I knew just who would be getting that little cookie! So yesterday (Wednesday), Corbin woke up and before they left, Tiffie, me, and him went for a walk to burn off some energy (he has A LOT!). Well Tiffany told me to bring the cookie and told Corbin he would get a surprise when we got to the duck pond. So I carried the cookie in a bag. About halfway there, he asked if he could carry the bag without looking, Of course, I said!

He was so excited to arrive there and find out that the surprise was a cookie! He did ask earlier if it was a eatable surprise? And I tried to trick him and tell him it was edible and it was broccoli (no dice!)

|I kid you not, the second these ducks heard the plastic packaging, they were hurrying over to little Corbin. I had to pick him up so they could not get to his cookie!|

|Deep in thought|
In the hurry to get out of the house, and because I don't have children to think about these things, we forgot to grab napkins or anything so when all was said...and well...eaten, we were left with a black icing mouth on this cute little kid. But he was not too upset, in fact, I think since he ate the smiley face, he felt like he had to smile to make up for it!
