I am switching my domain over to a new web host. I have no idea what I am doing and am teaching myself along the way(read the becauses!) So I hope my website does not get lost in cyberspace somewhere (which I am scared to death all will be lost!) WHICH by the way it did for days!
You see I had next week already planned out for you. I was going to give you beach week, since we are going to be away at the beach. But I took a leap of faith and decided yesterday to make a switch. This is going to be so much more challenging then I realized but I know if it works it will be so much more.

I made my own yellow sugar by adding 1/2 cup sugar in a jar. Then I added 3 drops of yellow food coloring and shook it up. Ta da, yellow sugar.
Also I made my eyes by melting white chocolate and dark chocolate. This was very time consuming, messing and a little trouble so if you can find the eyes buy them. Probably much easier! You can also make without the eyes!
Also on thedecoratedcookie is a really good instructional on how to shape the starfish using a regular star cookie cutter!
