Glad Grad

We have been renovating a 30 year old house since we moved to New Hampshire this past spring.  Many people will warn you about the costs and the timeline of renovations.  “Many people” were correct, correct, and, oh yeah, CORRECT! But, at last, catching up on the cookie sets never posted….

I created this set last spring for one GLAD GRADuate. Thank you Lawdy that that part of schooling was done (although she is now working on her Masters…). Impressive.gladgrad3.jpg

Geek is the new Chic

I am so happy for Katherine- that she is graduating from high school and heading to Pitt to study neuroscience.  But, dang, she is the youngest of the swim kids with whom our children hung out! All this growing up is happening!  An era of chlorine is over (I mean, even Michael Phelps is retired now). Yikes!

In any case, it was one last graduation set to make.  I made two platters: one focused on the nerdy inclinations and the other on her future university, Pitt.

For the Geek inside us all (okay, maybe not ALL of us), I focused on some biological responses.  #nerdsrule #chemistryiseverywhere  Those stamped clever/nerdy sayings came from pencils I bought from Newton and the Apple.

But my favorite was the Myelin sheath dress.  (I try to come up with my own clever creations whenever possible.  I think this is another Mama Mayer original.)

Lastly, here are a couple of close ups for the Pitt cookies. I have a thing for puffy cookies….

Hats Off to the Graduate

Can’t believe that our baby girl is graduating from University.  Not such a baby anymore. We are unbelievably proud of her. As a nod to her achievement, I made these quick three cookies: jumbo-sized for her jumbo-sized accomplishments!  Way to go!

University of Florida

Had a request to make cookies for a young lady heading to the University of Florida.  How can you say no to a GATOR? Because I needed a very quick turn around on making these cookies,  I opted for some logos using simple edible pens and stencils to compliment the traditional royal icing decorating.

One Smart Cookie

I have had the pleasure of meeting a LOT of bright and clever people over the years.  This young graduate is no exception.  Lauren has interned in a hospital already…and that’s before she heads off to a pre-med program at university!  Although her biology and chemistry acumen takes a major role of her life,  I threw in a few other interests that keep her busy (swimming, being from Buffalo, and graduating) as well.  Luckily, Lauren has a kind disposition and is forgiving of my love for word play….
