For Sure, Architecture

There is a lot of fun banter that goes on via the Instagram feed.  So it happened that the fabulous Rebecca Weld, aka the Cookie Architect, off-handedly inquired if a particular set of my cookies had a home.  And how she was willing to volunteer hers if not. Those cookies were spoken for but the wheels started turning for a “structurally” sound solution.  As ridiculous as it seems, there appears to be a pun/wordplay for every situation, including architecture.  If you want to have your socks knocked off, click on the link above to visit Rebecca’s blog- and prepared to be dazzled! Her cookie art is one of the Seven Wonders (of the Cookie World).

Get REAL (Estate)!

What else would one do after successfully getting your real estate license but celebrate with cookies? This particular cookie grouping was “commissioned” by a student (turned licensed real estate agent) grateful for his teacher’s humor and guidance.  The idea was to do a study of home styles.  Hopefully you can pick out which is which among the victorian, craftsman, salt box, colonial, tudor, White House, etc…  Professor’s favorite architect is Frank Lloyd Wright so I included a pseudo.Falling Waters.  Also included was the building where the class was conducted: the Williamsville (NY) Executive Center.  All cookies were hand painted on royal icing.
