I was humbled to be a part of Operation Cookie Takeover this October. These cookies went out to an active duty Marine stationed abroad. In addition to active duty military, a big thank you goes out to all of our veterans; I can’t imagine what it must take. Much obliged to Melanie at Killer Zebras for the perfect thank you stencil and accompanying cookie cutter.
Another set for a serviceman overseas. One of many sent to our military, serving far away from home, through Operation Cookie Takeover. Although I do not know the individual who received these treats, I want them to know they are not forgotten.
Another cookie set sent to the troops abroad. Although I do not know the young man who will receive these cookies, I hope he feels my/our support.
I air brushed a just baked cookie with three colors, ivory, forest green, yellow- shown here (sorry about the out of focus picture). Then I used a 20 second stiff icing to outline the perimeter and word. Flooded w 10 second icing and, while still wet, placed little starts from a Texan Sprinkles mix for the just right bling.
Several times a year I send cookies to service members serving abroad. This batch made their way to a young man in the Air Force. My thanks in word and cookie.
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.
