Have I got something sweet for you guys!
A while back, I did an apron makeover on one of Captain Leisure Tees super fun aprons.
I ruffled it. I added pockets. Gave it a fun flower pin. You know….I Aimee-fied it.
Here’s a refresher for that apron: Body By Buttercream
So when the company contacted me and told me I could play with some more aprons, I got so excited!
I chose the Make Cookies Not War.
I’ll be honest, I liked the pink and brown color combo. And that peace dove holding a spatula? Too cute.
So, in true Aimee form I added a colorful ruffle.
And then…I did something unusual.
I added a matching band to the straps.
And I sort of fell in love with those straps.
You know what else I did?
I made some matching cookies. Because after all, the apron says “make cookies”.
Easiest cookies ever.
1 box of sugar cookie mix.
Bake and let cool.
Mix 2 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar, 1/4 (and then a little more) water, 1/2 tsp of almond extract.
Whisk together until completely smooth & slightly runny.
Dip your sugar cookie face down into the glaze.
Sort of swirl the excess off.
Then sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle some sprinkles or some pink nonpareils like I did.
That’s it. All done.
And now for what you really want.
To get your hands on that apron so you can make cookies of your own in it!
Well, here ya go:
