Emoji cookies are not as easy as they look!
I had this idea that they’d be simple. And quick.
But began to realise I was wrong when I went to make the colours – just yellow and black, right?
Wrong! … I needed white. And red. And blue. Oh, and pink too!
I stopped there, although I was sorely tempted by then to add brown for a 💩… which kind of summed up what I was thinking at that stage!
Then, of course, there’s the fact that emojis are perfectly, computer-generatedly symmetrical.
And we all know the problems I have with symmetry.
Don’t look too closely!
I started with the mouths, wanting them to be a little recessed in the yellow (only if they were the great big grins, little smiles went on top.) Let those dry; then flooded with yellow, and followed with the other features.
The trickiest things were the mouths.
It was all tricky – getting the spacing/ positioning right. And symmetry!
Next time I’ll print out a template. But I was determined to keep it quick and simple, dammit!
It might have been simpler with a template…
Is there an emoji for tearing your hair out?!
Happy decorating 😁
