John Deere Tractors
I grew up on a farm in Indiana so I know good and well what a John Deere tractor looks like! :) I had a blast making these cookies for a cute little boy about to turn 2 years old. This little man lives in Iowa so this was my first "long-distance" order. I was a little hesitant to do it but I figured, why not give it a try? I'm glad I took some before pictures because unfortunately none of them made it there in one piece. :( Apparently Iowa is too far away from Michigan to ship cookies no matter how much bubble wrap and "FRAGILE" stickers you put on the box! Oh well, lesson learned and hopefully they were still able to eat some of them! Happy birthday P!
On a side note, there are many people on Etsy that sell decorated sugar cookies and will ship to anywhere in the U.S. If I have any readers that do this, can you offer up some advice? What did I do wrong? What can I do differently if there is ever a next time? Thanks so much!
