I'm Here! With Coin Cookies

If I told you all the things I've been up to, you would not believe me. Suffice it to say, from end of July to September, I was on 16 different airplanes, the computer died, we had all 3 of our cars break down or give us problems in the same week and had other various things occur.

The cake-making has been waylaid.  Big time.

My son has been rehearsing for his school's production of "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" for several weeks.  Last week, Wednesday through Friday, were the performance evenings.  Jacob played Hamlet.  If you don't know about the play, Google or Wiki it.  I, for one, love it, but I'm a literature freak and love Shakespeare, so I get "R&G are Dead."

I wanted to make something special for all the kids involved in the play, whether it be on or off stage.  I decided to make cookies.  In the play, they play with coins a lot.  So, I made them one large coin cookie on a stick, and two smaller cookies depicting the Comedy and Tragedy masks.

Then last week happened and I ran out of time.  I was decorating until midnight and 1 a.m. on two nights, and got off early on Friday so I could put the cookies all together for them.  The mask cookies looked like a 5th grader made them; they were horrible.  I was pretty proud of my coin cookies though.
