My friends over at Sony Pictures sent me some cookie and frosting mixes from Foodstirs to celebrate The Emoji Movie. Obviously, my mission was clear. I was going to try my hand at Emoji Cookies.
I wanted to give making Emoji Cookies my best shot, but I should probably let you know that cookie decorating skills are not something I possess. Like at all. I’m really crafty and a pretty decent baker…but adding frosting? That’s my nemesis.
But I’m always up for a challenge, so I baked up a batch of sugar cookies and whipped up some frosting. I then divided the frosting into three bowls and dyed it yellow, black and red with food coloring.
Then it was just me and a couple of piping bags, with a strong desire to make something that looked like a smiley face and not a blob. Well…see the whole process for yourself…
Not totally embarasing? Maybe?
And now that you’ve witnessed my sweet, sweet Emoji Cookie decorating skills, you’re totally psyched to see The Emoji Movie, right?
The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
