... I baked cookies and cupcakes with my in-laws.
Unbaked black and white cookies
Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
We've decided we'd just bake the cupcakes for Yakee's birthday. It would be another really personal touch. Thank goodness for MIL's commercial-size oven and SIL's weird obsession with baking, chopping, etc.
We baked around 60 cupcakes and two batches of cookies... and generally ate them all up over the weekend as we were locked in by the rains. I also realized that we can't be too careful with ingredients, esply in baking. But it was really fun to decorate your cookies and up the sugar ante all you want.
