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!

“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” bouquets

The high school play was “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and all 3 of the triplets were part of the cast.  Tradition might suggest flowers for the final night performance but I beg to differ.  Cookie bouquets are unique and so delicious (even if they don’t last as long as blooms! yum. yum.).  I do believe Willy Wonka and the Oompa Loompas would approve.

Centerpieces for an Engineers Ball

Huh?  When did engineers start having dinner dances?  Apparently it is a tradition for the UB student engineers.  I knew one of the lead organizers and he knew my cookies.  This led to some fun centerpiece karma.  I made cookies for half of the 30 tables as there were about 15 engineering clubs involved… I kind.a added one or two more to feed my own pun addiction.  I have a “pun” problem.  A really, truly, serious problem.

So I don’t have pictures of all of the tables because blithering idiot here forgot the camera when venue set-up time rolled around.  The few I have are from my phone and the quality is not optimal.  I did take some pictures before I left the house.  So here they are!

There were also cookies for Black engineers, Hispanic engineers, Society of Women Engineers, Sustainable world, Biomedical engineering, Industrial engineering, etc.   Drat.  No pictures of those.  Need to plan more time for photos …
