Cookies for Kids Part One

Remember Bridget? She was one of the featured guests on my series Five Sites That Inspire Me. She decided to participate in Drop in and Decorate this year. So of course, I had to tag along and join in the fun!

Drop in and Decorate is all about community… (from their website)

Our mission is to build bridges of caring and respect between groups within their own communities. We do that with cookies, and we work to make cookies-for-donation events easy and affordable for any individual or group who would like to decorate and donate cookies to a nonprofit agency serving basic human needs in the own community.

The charity that I chose to work with is called Nokomis (from their website), and it's through the Village Family Services in Fargo, ND.

this program fills a need for families with special needs, both financial and emotional. Nokomis provides a place for all children to thrive and grow

I was SO excited to be able to make cookies for kids!!

Cause, see, I sorta love rainbows.

And kids loved rainbows.

Its win-win!

I decided to go with an alphabet theme.

After I finished then, I got all worried it was not as fun as I hoped.

Then Colton came in the kitchen and squealed with delight.

What do you think?

    Wow, love those cookies!!! I hope you know, part of the Drop In & Decorate tradition involves stealing other people’s cookie ideas! The sincerest form of flattery, as they say.

    Hi Amanda…I’m a professional pastry chef and I can’t remember the last time I saw such talent. Those cookies are ‘SPECTACULAR”. Thank you from a Drop In & Decorate.

    Your cookies are gorgeous! I help my first Drop In & Decorate earlier this year and it was a lot of fun. I was overwhelmed by the responses from the recipients. It’s amazing how a cookie can brighten someone’s day and make them feel special :)

    Hi Amanda. I love your cookies – you are so talented. I was wondering how you did the lettering for the alphabet cookies? How do you get the letters so uniform? Do you pipe the icing on parchment over a template? Just curious is you can let me know.
    Thanks in advance.
