However! I baked the other day at my boyfriends house and used his dad's camera, thus enabling me to write this to say both "I'm not dead after all!" and "Look! I made cookies!" :)
Steve's dad has had a box of white cake mix and a container of frosting sitting in his cupboard for months now, so when I woke up on the morning of February 13th with an urge to make heart-shaped sugar cookies, I decided to use Monster Mama's "Incredibly Easy [Cake Mix] Sugar Cookies" recipe again.
I honestly can't remember the last time I used store-bought frosting before this, and after getting so use to working with buttercream frosting, I wasn't looking forward to trying to frost these. So I decided to melt the frosting in a large bowl and dunk each cookie face down in it. They turned out a bit messy, but still pretty smooth.
After letting the frosting set a little bit, a few friends and I decorated the cookies with some sprinkles I bought earlier that day. (Not letting the frosting set resulted in sinking, unattractive sprinkles. So like I mentioned, let the frosting thicken a bit on the cookie first.)
In my attempt to make these, I started to realize how spoiled I am with my drawer and cupboard full of baking things back home. So I was a little disgruntled at first working in a different kitchen. But Steve's dad dug out some cookie cutters and a rolling pin for me, and I even found some lone red food coloring hiding in the Lazy Susan, so everything ended up working out just fine. :)
Overall this is an incredibly easy recipe, and I seriously love it so much I wish I could make more right now. :P
Well, that's all for now, hopefully I'll be posting again soon.
