I LOVE so many crazy things about this picture.

1. Frosting roses on Coconut Snowballs

2. Excited pumpkin cupcakes

3. Piped cherries on a cherry pie

4. Ridiculous amounts of frosting on paper thin sugar cookies

5. The roses infesting that wedding cake

    There was a kiosk in a little mall where I grew up that sold those thin cookies encrusted in star-tipped sugar frosting for festive occasions. I never ate one, but always imagined what it would feel like for your teeth to crunch through such a thick layer of sugar paste. It makes me a little sick… and a little excited.
