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….

Instrumental.

This graduate is heading to the prestigious Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University.  The instruments near and dear to her heart are the oboe and the english horn.  Pinterest and IG have so many cool photos where only part of the subject is showing , with that section displaying incredible detail.  So I ‘cookied’ her instruments of choice in a similar fashion.

Side by side comparison. The cookies were first base coated in royal icing (RI).  The instruments were then drawn in with a black edible ink pen and filled in with a small paint brush (and gel mixed with clear extract).  A final surround of black RI finished the cookies up!

Bouncing Baby Boy

This was a quick, last minute addition to the baking schedule.  Friend at work asked for a box of cookies for a new baby boy.  Such a happy time, the arrival of a new little one.  Onesies are a go-to shape for new baby cookies and I must admit that I have a ‘thing’ for argyle.  I also was happy to try a design that had been sleeping in the recesses of my mind: mommy loves daddy loves baby loves mommy…. a little more work to make that just right but you get the gist.
