The night after Halloween, DH and I were shopping at Kmart and he mentioned some frosting he saw that was marked down to 99 cents.
"I hate canned frosting," I say without even looking at it.
"It's orange Halloween frosting," he's trying to beef up the value of his find.
Hmmmm, my curiosity is peeked and I go take a look. I already know I am going to need orange frosting for my pumpkin cookies. This is already made, it's already orange, it has free little Halloween sprinkles attached to the top and it's half price.
I'm no fool. I take two cans.
When it came time to use it, I decided to perk it up a notch and stirred in 1 tsp of orange extract and some meringue powder to make sure it hardens on the cookie.
If I may say so myself, this is darn good cookie frosting! The orange extract gave it a nice punch of citrus flavor. Naturally, I am taking full credit since I added the extract.
I could have your job, Sandra Lee.
Of course, there are a few differences... you're a decade younger, much more photogenic and have some perky artificial cleavage.... other than that though, I'd be pretty qualified.
