LOST in Baking
I will admit that I am not much of a baker anymore.
I baked hundreds, maybe thousands
of cupcakes and cookies when my boys were younger.
Class parties, Room Mother duties, school lunches....
It seemed as though there was a last minute
baking emergency at least once a week.
But I saw a photo on a friend's Facebook post last week
and absolutely had to borrow the idea:
LOST-Themed Cookie Cutter Set!!!
Another friend had gifted her a set
of four cookie cutters with a LOST theme:
I expanded on the idea and ordered two sets of 7 cookie cutters.
(One for me, one for a LOSTie pal)
Airplane (BOTH Oceanic and Ajira cookies!)
Palm Tree (to represent The Island)
Swan (to represent the Swan Station)
Hand (Not Penny's Boat cookies! - I previously
made a larger cardboard cutout that I used as a
template for several batches)
Bunny (this turned out to be smaller than I thought.
I may have to order a larger one. But it will still be cute
decorated in white icing with a black 8 on it's side)
Fish (for mini Fish Biscuits! The tail will have to be modified,
but that's an easy fix with the cookie dough. I used a cardboard template
for several batches of full-sized Fish Biscuits in the past.)
I may have to cut out a few gingerbread men
and decorate them as my favorite castaways as well.
(I've always wanted to nibble on Desmond.)
Of course I'll be wearing my custom Dharma Chef
hat and apron while baking.
Photos of decorated cookies soon!
