Tap, Tap, Tap . . . is this thing still on?

Hellooooo...it's Bridget here!

Miracle of miracles, we have a video today!!!  A missing camcorder charging cord, Flip software that wouldn't work, and well, general busyness have kept me away for awhile.  Sunday, I broke down and bought an iPhone (oh, how I love it)....and Monday, I tested out the video camera.


Short and sweet today:  this tip is one I picked up from Julia Usher's new book, Ultimate Cookies.
Now, Julia uses this technique when she is constructing 3D cookie masterpieces (think gingerbread houses), but I used it this week when I wanted to be sure my cookies were cut to the exact same size as my edible images. 


If anyone is still here, thanks for watching!!!

Adorable as always, Bridget! You are so full of joy, and I love watching your videos! Definitely still here, and I'm glad to see that UofC is abandoned no more!

I have that exact same cutter, and I just used it last night. Crazy, small world we live in. :-)

I love it when formally trained people do something I do...it makes me feel smart instead of what really happens. I pull a sheet out of the oven, think CRAP, and then do things I would never normally do unless desperate. I feel so validated!!! =)
