Monday I was baking more cookies and making sure my hands were too covered in food dye to work on people's Christmas presents.
The only flaw in my ingenious plan to make more red velvet cookies was that I'd used up all the red food coloring to make the last batch of red velvet cookies. So, looking at the available Wilton concentrated icing colors, I decided on purple. I like purple, and one of the advent candles is purple for some reason.
I should've known better than to listen to the person who keeps giggling moronically because the directions say to shape the dough into one inch balls.
Plan B: black velvet. Because that's a song. And I briefly thought it was also a story about a horse until I realized I was conflating Black Beauty and National Velvet. (If you ever need to explain your pal Kate to someone, just say that I have a big vocabulary and sometimes spend hours saying, "One inch balls" and laughing.)
