East End Cake Decoraing Club - Nov. 16th Meeting, Cookie Decorating

A group of us from the EECD brought baked cookies and had a great time decorating them for various charities. Between the fifteen of us we decorated and individually packaged about 150 cookies. There were lots of pre-made decorations which everyone shared and the results showed such a variety of techniques and design. We paused half way through for tea, coffee and lots of goodies, and still had everything packaged up just after 4pm, in a little over 2 hours. December's meeting will be a workshop on making graham cracker "gingerbread" houses, a sleigh, and a "show and tell" by members who have interesting tools or projects. More info on the date and time soon. ********************************************************************** P.S. Here's the recipe for Lemon Curd 1 cup white sugar....4 eggs, well beaten (I remove those bits that are attached to the yolks).....1/4 lb. butter.......Rind of 2 lemons......Juice of 3 lemons Mix together and cook in a double boiler until thick. Stir often. Takes about 20 mins. or less.

Oh, those look beautiful! How does one make one's self eat the beautiful cookie?

Thanks for the lemon curd recipe. We had it with pumpkin cranberry scones from Piecemakers, but I didn't know how to make it. I've always liked it.
