"Favorite Things" birthday platter
My co-worker Tula asked me to make a birthday platter for her boyfriend Ben. She wasn't sure exactly what she wanted, so she sent me an e-mail with these ideas:
- Star Wars
- Sound guy/film stuff (like headphones, microphones, mixing boards, film reel, etc…)
- A few love-y ones, like hearts or xo’s, etc…
- Since we have two dogs, anything dog-related, like paw prints, or something?
- Turtles (we like turtles haha)
- Plants, flowers, veggies or fruit (he loves plants and is starting a garden)
- Can you do one that says “Myspace”? hahahah. Because we met at a party and then he found me on myspace and we started emailing there and the rest is history.
How's THAT for a random collection of stuff?? I decided, "what the heck!" and proceeded to put together a platter containing a little bit of everything!
This ended up being a fun collection of cookie techniques. I made the "sound guy" stuff and Myspace logo using my new toy the Kopykake. I used my favorite Star Wars cookie cutters, and my new paw print cutter. I had some cool wafer paper seed packet images I got for free at CookieCon, and they were a lot of fun to use.- will be buying more of them! Finally, I used some sprinkles and disco dust to bling some of the simpler the cookies out .. . all in all the most eclectic collection I have ever made!
Thank you for your donation, Tula! I hope this is the first of many "favorite things" cookie collections. What would you put in yours?
