We went hard! The boyfriend, my roommate (my lovely wife), and I have been wanting to do a baking day for awhile now. As a Christmas present for my man, I got him a Kitchenaid stand mixer. He named her Wanita. With this new mixer, we picked out a few recipes and went at it. My boyfriend, precious baby, is a cook through and through. Now, cooking is an art, but baking, baking is a science.
Baking is difficult man. We’ve picked half a dozen recipes for tonight, but I’m not sure if we’ll have enough time to make them all. Plus, we have two boxes of cookies and a “Kit-Kat Log Cabin” to make too. The coffee cake recipe doesn’t actually have any coffee in it, and the peppermint squares are going to have crushed candy canes added to them, otherwise, we’re going to follow these as best we can.
Premade cookie dough and the Kit-Kat thing are what we’re going to start the night with. Gingerbread cookies can be kind of sad tasting sometimes, so with leftover frosting from the cabin, we decorated them! Being basically twelve year olds, we did our best, my wife and I, to make then a tad inappropriate. There’s one where the joke was made about looking like they were waiting for the towel. At this point, my boyfriend had some early Christmas presents to open too!
