Why Didn't I Think of That?

ONE HALLOWEEN, I made pumpkin cookies with bright orange frosting. I wanted to add brown frosting for detail but couldn't seem to get the color right…even after I mixed every color combination imaginable.

I finally settled on one of my concoctions, but the cookies just didn't look right. Only later did I realize I could have used chocolate! —Edith Kisselburg, Soper, Oklahoma
