The Door is always Open

Instructions: old school classroom doors, Room 202. Got it. Meanwhile, I am inspired by (the many fabulous cookie decorators out there but on this day) the water color effect used by the unbelievable, uber talented Angela at The Painted Box.  And also the mad skill painting of A+++ artist Molly at TheGingerBites. And the results were…

Gettin’ Schwifty

I am continually amazed by what I learn doing research for cookie sets.  This job keeps me young and in the know.  Rick and Morty is an adult animated sci-fi action sitcom that was based on a parody of Back to the Future.  It follows a cynical mad scientist and his grandson on their weird and wacky adventures. Apparently, we forgot to tell kids that this late night cartoon was not supposed to be for children. Here was my take for 9 year old’s birthday party.

eCLIPse ART

Cookies for a party celebrating the “totality” of this solar eclipse! It is a happy set of coincidences that allows us to experience this event. The diameter of Earth’s moon is about 400 times smaller than the diameter of the sun, but it’s also about 400 times closer to us here on Earth (as compared to the distance to the sun). Poof.  The magic of a total eclipse happens. But the moon is slowly moving away from the earth so in , say, 600 million years, the moon will no longer totally cover the sun and earthlings will not be able to see a total eclipse.

Never let a good word play go un-expressed…

ColoRADo

Colorado celebrated 141 years of being in an elevated STATE of mind on August 1. The parties continue through the week and weekend. A large set of these delicious conversation starters made their appearance at one of those celebrations.

Love Blooms

We joined Todd and Hannah for a weekend that was so incredible it defies words. Their rustic chic wedding combined their love of greenery (okay, maybe Hannah’s love) and the beauty of the area the Hannah calls her childhood home.  First, the botanical cookies…

Their first date involved hot dogs; apparently an impressive amount of hot dogs… Todd likes them plain.

Here are the welcome bag cookies; they wanted to represent the intertwined relationship coming initially from two different states.

The ampersand vine (keeping that rustic floral theme)…

A Good (Eagle) Scout

These young men totally brought it, with their wonderful Eagle Scout projects and honor to the promise! Impressive dedication and hard work.  Cookies for the congratulation ceremony tried to represent appropriately!
