Really it is the little things that being one delight.
immature triumph over some fancy machine beater lady who said not to bother even trying to beat egg whites to stiffness if by hand and you have no copper bowl.
Take that lady. Take THAT.
Rather satisfying and incredibly pretty. (no that wasn’t quite done. I finished getting them stiff after I added the sugar. This was making royal icing for gingerbread cookies)
