But not in my kitchen. I have made my own fall. And since I have a "day" job, I'm doing it in shifts. But here are my first FALL LEAVES
See, there is color in the South!
I tried to do the painting technique. Maybe it was the fact that this is NOT royal icing. I'm not really sure, but I began to give up. Then the lightbulb went off. Hmmm. I wonder what would happen if I just wet the brush and "slurred" the color on the stem. And then I thought, hey, why don't I just dilute the stem color and brush that on the leaves...one time near the center...and (I only had ONE other leaf) I tried the "water" color on the edges. Anyway. I sort of liked the result. Error to the rescue. I'd still like to do that painting. Another day...another icing....another batch of cookies. But that's really ok.
I have been enjoying everyone's posts. All those leaves, and pumpkins and you know, AUTUMN.
I have a few coming of my own. No tutorial, just the results of looking at all of yours...if you're readin'
