Well, on wanting to become one. Lifestyle bloggers go about their daily lives making the rest of us jealous. They paint their nails the best colors, find priceless pieces of art from local flea markets, and gallivant around cities like LA and New York, turning the heads of unsuspecting commoners everywhere. Or at least, I imagine they do.
Our day started off at the farmers market, where we picked produce, sampled sausage, and took polaroids of all the fun we were having.
You see, I had just made a batch of Annie’s lemon and vanilla bean white sugar cookies and I was waiting for the perfect time to experiment with royal icing.
I made crocodiles because Sous Chef Lauren used to work at Lacoste and strawberries because they have one of the same colors as crocodiles, and owls and butterflies because it seemed like a good idea at the time.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt as out of place in the kitchen as I did making royal icing, so I enrolled both SCL and myself in the University of Cookie.
And I think we’re both done with royal icing for the rest of our lives. It was a time consuming process, and though it was a lovely way to spend a day with one of my favorite people, I felt no major sense of accomplishment when we were through. It sure did make for a good post, though.
