mini witch leg cookies (as in, Wizard of Oz) (as in, my fourth challenge)

News on the Foodbuzz Project Food Blogfront: My kid’s cookie decorating dinner party got me through to round 4! Though I’m not sure how many more rounds I’ll survive. The competition is pretty dang impressive. But another huge and hearty THANK YOU! to all who voted for me. The next challenge: use photography to create a step by step, instructional photo tutorial.

As my daughter has been obsessively watching Wizard of Oz of late, and as it seems appropriate for Halloween, I thought of the witch’s legs after Dorothy smushes the wicked witch with her house in Munchkinland (accidentally, of course). So I made tiny little bite-size cookie stackswithsparkly ruby slippers.Step-by-step instructional tutorials are, as many of you know, a crucial component of this blog. But, I usually rely on my little drawings. So, this is a bit of new territory. Buthere goes. A photo tutorial…

    THIS is one of the CUTEST, most creative treats I've EVER seen! You have always posted great tutorials and this is no exception! Way to go, Meaghan!

    I really like your step by step directions with the photos. I think that is very helpful and one thing that the Internet can do better than a traditional cookbook. That many photos would make a book crazy expensive.

    Loved your post…super cute idea! Great instructional step-by-step photos as well. Good luck and hope to join you in the next round!

  12. We Are Not Martha says

    This is absolutely adorable and so perfect for Halloween! Also, it's the kind of thing I'd NEVER attempt if it only featured one final photo. But since you explain it step-by-step, it makes it feel much more obtainable. Good luck!! :)
