These cookies are a tribute to one AMAZING woman who, while fighting breast cancer, continued to train and successfully competed in an iron man competition. She then topped that off with a marathon. Some people defy the imagination.
When she was going through her treatment, she and her friends would wear pink wigs in solidarity and they had little paper baseball caps on a stick that were part of their celebrating “fun without cancer.”
This may or may not have been one of my favorite sets ever to create. Wisecracking was dripping off of my icing bag. I would go so far as to say it was total SASSafras. Maybe or maybe not a little close to home????
Where does your mind go when it wanders? What do you think of when you take a walk, or are waiting for sleep, or are in the shower? I have a certain, um, inclination to think about cookie concepts. I have often wondered if cookies are into me as much as I am into them.
This set started with someone saying a famous artist’s name just a little wrong. My mind took it to “Vincent Van Goat” and the cookie set took on a life of it’s own.
A little late to the (cake) plate on this post but just love the umbrella cutter (still crushing on all things Killer Zebras). I tweaked the original design to incorporate Easter bunnies. If you haven’t noticed, I am in a geometric phase; bring on the structured rabbits. Hope you enjoy!
A very brave and wonderful woman is donating a kidney. I am hoping that a little humor will help ease the stress of the surgery. Now a resident of Denver, she is originally from Boston so that needed to be incorporated into the set. Kidneys, the Mama Mayer way.
If you follow this blog, you know that I volunteer for Operation Cookie Takeover. We send treats to military folks serving overseas. I was assigned a Marine for this current (Veterans day) round of cookies. We don’t know where they are stationed but we do find out their battalion. Therefore, I can always include specifics as to their motto and crest. Here was that set.
Oh no I didn’t. Yes WHEY, I did! This order was for a newly married couple who met at the gym and were both into power lifting. The client gave me free rein with design and so I LUNGED into the puns. Never been so dead (lift) serious in my life.
