Cookie Decorating for Daddy

We recently went to a friend's son's birthday party and missed the art session and cookie decorating session laid out for the kids. It would have been so much fun, but I thought, hey it should be easy to do this at home so we bought the requisite stuff and had our own cookie decorating session at the house. 

It just so happened we discovered this really good sugar cookie mix from Betty Crocker which we found at Cold Storage weeks back. They end up soft and moist and don't harden even after a week. I stock up on these cookie mixes and on brownie mixes so we don't have to rely on store-bought desserts and just make our own. These are pretty nice and quite cheap. It costs about SGD8 for each packet and we end up with about a dozen or so cookies.  
I also bought icing tubes for us to use, these are the ones that set hard. The small box is about SGD15 and contains four icing tubes of basic colors: red, green, blue and yellow. It's a bit expensive but these are the only ones I could find.

I had to encourage the kids to try it out as they weren't quite sure what to do but once they've gotten the hang of it they've been obsessed with cookie decorating ever since.

Now every time they want to eat a cookie, they ask me 'Mommy, can we decorate a cookie?' and sometimes if they want to be particularly persuasive they ask me 'Mommy, can we decorate a cookie for Daddy?'although most times cookies decorated for Daddy end up in their tummies anyway but hey it's great fun and at some point in time Daddy will probably end up with a cookie, it just won't happen anytime soon.
