Actual cinnamon buns in the oven led to synonym buns. Which got me on a roll that led to some pretty silly cookies. Seriously though, the English language and I have a long and convoluted relationship. Come along while I navigate my cookie-documented IDIOMactic journey!
So I just got a little education about the New Jersey shoreline. Never knew about Long Beach Island before this summer and boy, was I missing out. I also learned the “Don’t Give Up the Ship” story, as this flag flies at the host’s house. …thought about using more word play but one has to draw the line in the sand somewhere.
Oh no I didn’t. Yes WHEY, I did! This order was for a newly married couple who met at the gym and were both into power lifting. The client gave me free rein with design and so I LUNGED into the puns. Never been so dead (lift) serious in my life.
Another play on words??? So shocking. Let me know if you are getting tired of them. Apparently I never do. And I am kinda pleased with the random mermaid skeleton. Do I even have to say that my mind works in weird ways???
Dear Halloween: I get it. You’re spooky. All that creaking and moaning is very expressive. But I am just not that into the scary vibe. I’d rather flaunt my haunt with a flavor of fun. Turning word play possibilities into probabilities. Hope we can still be friends. My best, MMB
Here are the cookies that went out to the GoBoBakeSale this year (fundraiser for ALS).
#truth My never ending love of puns extends to every food experience. Just one trip to my favorite sushi restaurant and these little jokesters started hanging around IG (yep, you can find me at MamaMayerBakery on Instagram). Oh, and it’s been a summer of humorous inspiration. Just you wait.
