U.S.A. U.S.A. U.S.A.

Posted by Anne Yorks on Saturday, March 6, 2010

This post is a little delayed as a result of my birthday posts. But, just start chanting "U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!" and you'll get in the mood for this cookie project.

I had a busy cookie week during the Olympics and so I got to listen to a lot of the evening broadcasts. I glanced up every now and then to see a USA competitor, but for the most part my eyes were on the cookies. There's just something so cool about the Olympics. The history, the traditions, the whole world coming together for two weeks. I just love it! 

And how about that hockey team? Pulling the major upset! Seems like (according to facebook posts) the USA was robbed a gold medal in the end. I don't know about all that, but I did learn something new. Did you know that our star player, Ryan Miller, comes from the NHL team the Buffalo Sabres? I didn't. I was working on a custom ice hockey cookie order and the customer requested that I add the Buffalo Sabres logo to the design. Logos can stress me out. Sometimes they are too complex for me to translate to a cookie. But, this time I think it worked out well. And then I find out that Ryan is on the Sabres. I had no idea that either existed and now it seems like they are all I hear about. Here is the Sabres logo...



And here is the cookie version...


The trick is doing the logo consistently a bunch of times. I had made quite a few extra cookies to practice and I'm glad I did. 


In the end, I had just enough good ones to fill the order.

I have another adorable custom order that I'll try to post tomorrow. I'm also working on some new Easter designs. I'll be posting those pics soon. It might [crossing my fingers] be time to take the winter cookies off the site. It just feels good to think that spring is near!

Have a sweet day,
Anne

    What’s debt consolidation?

    Consolidating debts entails taking right out new credit to repay existing credit usually. Most people do that to lessen the interest on the debt, to lower their payment amount or even to decrease the true amount of companies they owe money to.

    Debt consolidation reduction can be considered a useful strategy in a few situations but also for many it can entail extra costs, and makes a hard situation much worse probably. That’s why you need to get expert debt advice before taking right out a consolidation loan.
    Debt consolidation reduction or debts management?

    Debt consolidation reduction and arrears management are two various things but you can get confused between your terminology used when aiming to sort out your finances.

    188Unlimited. The power of the Federal Government to regulate our lives in any way it wants is unlmiited. If this is not Fascism, pure, naked, and simple, nothing is and the rationale for it is six words in Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3 in the Constitution, which specify an enumerated power of Congress to regulate Commerce among the several States.

    Susie if you freeze your coeikos to help hubby with his diet, just make sure they are completely bagged. I individually bag each cookie and then I put all those bagged coeikos into a freezer ziplock bag or a sealed tupperware container. With a teenager in the house, I very rarely have any extra coeikos to hide away, but that would be how to store them to save for later. Another thing is that when you take a couple out. LEAVE THEM BAGGED with NO AIR until they are fully defrosted. The second you open that bag with a cold or frozen cookie, the icing will start to get gummy/sticky.
