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).

Who said you can’t play with your food? Apparently, even religious holidays are not “sacred”??? And so it goes for Easter 2015. First an EGGStreme play on that Easter staple: the simple egg. Next I am YOLK-ing around with those wondrous little marshmallow fluffs they call Peeps. Sometimes our ‘peeps just steal the show!?
Peep Show (a 5×5″ double layer cookie!):
I have this friend- Kathy- who is smart, kind, funny, clever, incredibly resourceful, etc etc. You get the idea why any and everyone would want to hang with her! But in the summertime, it is extra lovely to be her buddy because she grows this incredible garden. No little plot with a handful of peppers and some tomato plants- rather it is a tilled and crop-rotated masterpiece. A HUGE undertaking from which we all benefit! so…I thought it apropos to make her birthday cookies that would help her ‘veg out!’ with something other than veggies. Surprise, surprise- the puns are back.
What got me thinking about this theme was a trip to Crate and Barrel. They had some vegetable plates that were humor provoking. It doesn’t take much to send me in that general direction. Some of the puns I had seen on-line in various places (wish I had the memory to tell you exactly where) and some just randomly popped into my head. Hope you find them “wet your p(l)ants” funny!!
Party time for a retiring manager of auditors. Yep, I was stumped for a couple of days on what cookies to make for this celebration. They didn’t want undo emphasis on the retirement aspect and no teasing about the number of years ‘experience.’ The only specifications were to make the cookies bright and happy. The client liked the general party hat and balloon idea.
The only other AUDITacious detail was that the retiring gentleman (and others in upper management) all went by their 3 initials; these were used to sign just about everything. So I incorporated that. That’s how I roll (the dough). Only the ‘write’ kind of custom cookies.
I made this for my husband for Father’s Day (because he is the bomb.diggity father/husband/man) but it could be sent to so many people for so many reasons!
