I like tea quite a lot. My mom only drinks tea (as opposed to coffee, not exclusively) and until I went to Unviersity, I was the same way. Over the course of three degrees (yes, three degrees, and please do ask how that's going for me), coffee became a staple. But I still love tea. So does the husband. We are big fans of David's Tea. Our current favourite is Santa's Secret - it is so, so good and SO FESTIVE. YAY!
Anyway. I made these teapot cookies last week for a 90th birthday brunch. I'm mostly pleased with how they turned out, although I'm thinking of upping the ante and investing in some shinier stuff to paint gold accents. I currently use whatever is sold at Bulk Barn (Wilton? I don't even know) and it's very matte, which is all fine and dandy, but I feel like the gold on a teapot should be blindingly shiny, and whatever it is I'm using is not bllindly anything. It's just ok.
In case you can't tell, the squiggles at the bottom of each pot are letters - I.E.A.B., the birthday girl's initials. This was a request by the client and while I think it's a lovely personal touch, I kind of wish I could have incorporated them some other way. How? I don't know. Oh, the questions unanswered! Woe is me.
