Artistic Expression

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.

Hoppy Easter 2017

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!

You’ve Got to be Kidneying Me

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.

Thank You for your Service

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.

Swole Mates

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.

Hang In There

There is always a story behind every cookie set.  This one concerns a young lady working toward her PhD, with a thesis on the issues decimating the Monarch butterfly population as they migrate. There were roadblocks and difficulties in her doctorate life as well.  Here’s how I tied the two together….
