IS IT SAFE?
Finally, the new science cookies are done!
It is tough to keep a 2 year old occupied long enough to work on cookies. I need some sort of giant hamster-ball for her to run around in when I need a few minutes to work. Anyway, this batch of science cookies are gingerbread men (or women, I didn't check) decked out in microbiology containment suits. These cookies laugh in the face of ebola and crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever! They are ready for any microbe or virus you might throw at them, just don't sniff the insides of their suits.
These are made with Martha Stewart's gingerbread cutout dough, the recipe can be found here (LINK) and my standard royal icing found here (LINK).
The cookies are tinted with three Americolor gels: Navy Blue, Gold and Super Black.
It takes a lot of baking to use up this hefty batch of gingerbread dough.
Eh... Why are those eggs are sitting there?

My hands look slightly less rubbery without latex gloves on.

Completed containment suit cookies! Okay, the knees look a little wonky. Trying to ice cookies after a 3rd cup of coffee wasn't such a hot idea.
Do they look a little paranoid to you?
Maybe it isn't so safe...
