Lacrosse (oh and soccer and basketball)

Go LAX! …and I don’t mean the airport in Los Angeles.  These cookies were created for a graduate who will be playing university lacrosse in another month or so.  But in high school, he was a 3 sport guy- also playing basketball and soccer when in season.  You could call him a “ballsy” sort of guy or maybe say that he was a “well rounded” athlete.

Some day I will make an entire post without a pun.  …….Today is not that day.

The lacrosse stick head was drawn with an edible ink pen (Americolor for heavier lines and Rainbow Dust for fine lines).  The portrait cookie was first penned in from a photo provided by mom (using a KopyKake); then details were added with thinned gel and an artist’s brush.

His high school ‘mascot’ is the Flame so I had the basketball ‘on fire’ as it headed into the net.  Also netted a goal with the soccer ball!

Let Them Eat Cake!

Well, sort of.  Cake is awesome but I am much better at baking cookies.  So when a friend’s kiddo wanted to take treats in to school for her 10th birthday, the phrase ‘let them have cake and eat it too’ came to mind. Hopefully no (french) revolution will follow…
