Oy! What was I thinking? Three dozen cookies due by 10am and I decide to start hand painting them at 7pm the night before... What an idiot! And so the term Procrasti-baking was born. PROCRASTIBAKING [proh-kras-tuh-beyk-ing] Verb. The act of putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention: She considered herself a smart cookie, but her constant procrastibaking often led her to stay up all night finishing projects.
These Diary of A Worm cookies were for a regular client who was hosting a book club meeting, and this was their featured title. I'm not a seasoned cookie painter, but I used to be handy with a paintbrush back in college. I found painting with food coloring surprisingly similar to working with water color. I can see the appeal. It's quick drying, you can blend colors and it goes fast.
36 of these creepy crawlies! I was happy with how they turned out, but happier that they were finished in time. Never again! Until the next time.
