Magical Birthday

Harry Potter still has the power to create magical birthdays.  And so I hoped it was with this request.  I borrowed a little wisdom from Luna to showcase in this set.

Off the Cuff

My hubby and I have been married for 32 years (so far) and these cookies shipped off to our friends that were there from the very beginning.  We had an opportunity to visit their home town after not seeing them for a very, way-too-very long time.  The 4 of us were right back to our roots, laughing and exchanging stories like in days gone past. Couldn’t have been more wonderful! But, somewhere along the way, I realized that they had never experienced MamaMayerBakery decorated cookies.  Preposterous!  To cure that ill, I sent some valentine-ish cookies (it was that time of the year) for the pediatrician’s office where our friend works.  She sent me the logo for the Children’s Clinic East to incorporate and my usual way with word play took over.

Carrie and Elizabeth are true book enthusiasts and for their wedding they wanted to create a favor that had that “” vibe.  The couple had already found some mugs they liked so I wanted to create cookies that would fit into the cup.  I thought some nice bookmarks would be clever and asked them to pick a few of their favorite books. I also included one book shaped cookie because I just couldn’t pass up the ‘chapter/page turner’ word play…  Here’s the result:bookmarks

The whole kit-and-kaboodle before they were heat sealed into their bags.


Happy President’s Day 2016

The USA’s presidents are fascinating men (so far, men only) whose stories are filled with folk lure and fact. Abraham Lincoln did NOT want to be called Abe.  He loved oysters.  And — was enshrined in the Wrestling Hall of Fame wayyyyy after his prowess as a wrestler waned.  George W (um, that’s Washington) did NOT have wooden teeth.  He did have loads of health issues, though, including his teeth.  And he did eventually have them all pulled.  Ugh.  Maybe his dogs (that he loved, loved, loved) comforted him- being the man’s best friends and all.

A Hunk, A Hunk of Burning Love

Okay.  So it’s actually “a hunk,” “a hunk,” AND burning “love.” Should have made them peanut butter flavor for the King.  No matter. Elvis has left the building. Special thanks to the great Callye Alvarado (the Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle) for the original tutorial and hunky torso idea!

This valentine is for all those fishermen (or women) out there.  Valentine’s Day is the season of puns so I’ve SCALED up my production.

GRATEst Valentine Ever

Who doesn’t love a cheesy Valentine? Well, this is certainly one of my GRATEst ever.  So zesty.  Ripping the word play to shreds!
