Lemon Wedge Sugar Cookies

It's hot....very hot. 
To cool off, I love lemon flavored Crystal Light, and I have been wanting to try one of these 'dangling cookies' for awhile now. 
The Decorated Cookie made a lime wedge cookie she hung from Cosmo glasses for the Sex in the City Movie opening, and I thought....I have GOT to do that...the Baptist way.  How about an innocent glass of calorie free lemonade?  Being Baptist really doesn't have anything to do with this, but it seemed like a good excuse for not owning a martini glass and trying out the lime wedge.  These are really easy, and it turned out better than I expected....the danging part, not the icing part....did I  mention it's hot?  I can't pipe a straight line when it's not hot, but I definitely can't be bothered with perfection when it's hot.  (So far I've blamed my crafting issues on being Baptist, and living in Texas in August.....it can only go down hill from here...). 
I cut out circles, and then sliced the circles in half, and carved out a little square with a sharp knife to 'dangle' the wedge on the glass from.  I baked....
I iced each cookie a light shade of yellow, then added a darker shade along the outside edge, and then shakily, lazily, and have dazedly (?) piped on the white lines. 
I'm done making excuses, and bad rhymes, but I am a fan of the color yellow, the flavor lemon, and the cookie of sugar. 
I could do without the heat of August, just in case anyone was wondering.
