GOBBLE.lets

Smaller cookies, a couple of bites in the eating, were requested this year.  Pondering what a bunch of small sized turkeys, baby turkeys if you will, would be called in the MMB world … I settled on gobble.lets or  goblets for short.  (okay, technically baby turkeys are called poult.  But I didn’t want anything even remotely associated with pouting around my poultry…).  Set in the colors of autumn (mixtures of Americolor egg yellow, orange, terra cotta, chocolate brown and wedgewood blue), I channeled random visions of Thanksgiving crafts over the years.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Halloween 2018

Graciously, Meri Meri allowed me to capture their 2018 Halloween designs in cookie form.  These went out to the yearly GO BO Bake Sale, fundraising to fight childhood cancer. Here’s hoping that one day we will find the way to cure or prevent cancer.

Rodeo Birthday

This isn’t her first rodeo, y’all! The birthday girl turned 3 with a sweet rodeo themed birthday party.  Roped the birthday guests in with these terrific treats!

The parents are gluten intolerant so I made these gluten free treats for them!

Slim Gym

I am not a gym rat but I have a “thing” for dance-y group classes. The more choreography, the better.  Funky, with a side of shake.that.thang, is optimal.  So I thought our AMAZING instructor (with her flawless queueing and unmatched choreography) and her devoted hoot and hollerers deserved some inspired cookies; the brownies were dairy and gluten free to accommodate specific needs in the room. Some of the shirts have been modeled by fellow dancers and some were just one’s I would buy if they were available… Woot woot.

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.
