Happy Chinese New Year!

 Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year, and 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, which represents good fortune!!  Just for fun, my Auntie C challenged me to make a very special sugar cookie. 

We had baked up a batch of Auntie C's Famous Sugar Cookies and cut out a scalloped square,  then after it cooled, we frosted it with a layer of white royal icing.  My Auntie had looked up the Chinese symbol for a dragon online with her phone, and gave it to me to copy freehand with chocolate icing.



Slowly, and carefully, I drew it out



It took some time, but I got it.




Here it is.  All I added after that was a sprinkling of red sugar around the edge.  I thought it was almost too good to eat.  But then, I had to share it! I gave it to one of my favorite teachers, Ms. Powers.  She loved it!

Hope your Year of the Dragon is filled with good fortune!!
