What I Did Today

Before we get to what I did today, this is a just a little viewing of my shop. Which by the way until I can affford a building is in my home. I get occassional loyal customers, but I do hope word and my advertising of my business will attract more customers.
Yep, I sell retail, and these are just a few items I sell. Of course I have to stock up for Valentines, that holiday a real busy for businesses.
As you can see I do handmade craft items, which people love, and I have gotten quite a few orders for crocheted wash cloths, and jewelry.

Here's some more items, ready to sell.

O.K. Here's what I've been doing today. Making heart shaped iced sugar cookies. I just wanted to practice frosting them. It's beginning to get easy, when I keep up with them. There not the best or professional looking cookies, not like L, but practice makes perfect.

I wanted to do all kinds of styles of decorating and my favorite would be the half of heart with two different colors or designs. I still haven't got the hang of the piping bag. So I took the easy way out and used the Wilton plastic bottle. I tried following the directions on the back of the box with the piping bags, but hey I'm a novice to this. It's going to take some time for me to get it. I'm not giving up, so I'll let you all know how it works out when I get the hang of it.

During this coldness, what have all of you did today, or what will you all do tomorrow?

Have fun, and enjoy life.

I think they look great!
Great job keeping the sprinkles on the one side of the cookie!
Here's a tip, try using very stiff icing in a pastry bag with a 3 tip to do the outlines and also use stiffer icing for the writing.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks L, I'm still learning. I have the #3 tip on my shopping list, so I'll definitely get that. I did made the frosting to liquidy, so it did run some. I'll try to stiffen the frosting up so my lettering will come out clearer.
Thanks for the encouragingment.
