As a reward to myself for meeting my exercise goal for the month, I signed up for two cake decorating classes on Craftsy. I know cake decorating and exercising sound like two diametrically opposed endeavors, but I was able to justify it to myself by maintaining that the cake decorating class would give me something to blog about. As long as I can keep myself from piping frosting directly into my mouth (a real struggle for someone like me), I should be able to maintain my fitness progress and learn to make some fancy cakes at the same time.
These cookies have been in the pipeline since before I started this blog. As a matter of fact, they were part of the inspiration for the blog. I was sitting at work one Friday daydreaming wistfully (during my lunch break, of course) about the upcoming weekend and what I wanted to do, and I thought to myself “I wanna bake.” Since just about any phrase can trigger a spontaneous burst of song in my head, this immediately launched a parody of “I Wanna Rock” by Twisted Sister in my twisted mind.
