I've recently gotten into cooking (mostly baking) after having made an awesome lemon merengue pie after our favorite pie company stopped selling them in our area. Since then I've been trying different recipes, but it turns out I kind of suck at cooking. This is the first recipe I've tried since the pie that was actually any good. Took me something like five hours to make, including the frosting, and the kitchen was a complete mess, but it was worth it.
This is the first time I've made sugar cookies, and also the first time I've worked with icing beyond just slathering it onto a cookie baked from pre-made dough. Naturally I had no idea what I was doing. It shows in the other 11 cookies that I didn't take a picture of. These were the last 6 I iced, which is why they look decent.
I also made cookies for the other WoW faction, the Alliance. I did them first, actually; they didn't turn out so well. Tasted fine, but were mostly an unrecognizable glob of blue and yellow. The outlining was actually fine but I botched the flooding and it covered most of the linework. I learned my lesson for the Horde cookies.
I also made a hearthstone as a test.
If you're interested, I used this cookie recipe
, this flood icing recipe
(dyed in red or blue), and Betty Crocker decorating icing
(black or yellow).
EDIT: Second batch Alliance cookies came out much better: littlefiredragon.deviantart.co…
