It's a Bird! It's a Plane!

It's a superhero cookie!! 

I made two sets of these cookies for two real-life superheros. Two guys, with birthdays one day apart, both comic book fans, big hearts, and they don't even know each other. Nuts. 

The theme of this project was DC Comics. No Marvel characters here. I do like Marvel and I am SO EXCITED to see the new Avengers movie this May. More Iron Man, please! 

For this project, I did four characters and included the character and their symbol. 


Batman cookies, but no Robin. He didn't make the cut this time.

I liked the Wonder Woman cookie. But her logo, well, not so neat. I just don't like sloppy, but I didn't have time to remake them. Topher says I'm nuts when I complain about cookie mistakes, but they just stare back at me. Oh well, no matter how they look, they always taste good.

On our first Halloween, I invited Topher over for dinner to my apartment. I told him 'costumes required'. I dressed as a 50s girl in a poodle skirt. Topher was Clark Kent, with a Superman t-shirt under his dress shirt. Kind of cool that he turned out to be my real-life Superman too.

The comic book action words were fun cookies for the mix. I'm sure you can guess my favorite. 

Zzzwap!!!!!!!! That's what I say when I finish a cookie order!

So ... on an unrelated note, can I just take a moment to thank everyone for their sweet comments about the Peep State Football Team project. I was overwhelmed with the kind things people said. Plus it got picked up by the Big Ten Network's website, www.btn.com click here to view the article. Then, not only was it shared on several PSU blogs, it was also shared on Penn State's official facebook page and PEEPS official facebook page. I'm just a little cookie baker in Bellefonte, PA, so this was all pretty cool. 

I didn't win the contest in the newspaper, but I really didn't make the project to win. I just want to give my fellow Blue and White fans a chance to smile. I do already have my project idea for the contest for next year. I just need to ask Just Born/Peeps very nicely to make me 5 special Peeps for my idea. Maybe if I send cookies with my request, then they would do it? Hmmmm. I'll have to work on a sweet little plan.  :) 

BUT, the Peep State team does need a home ... anyone have any ideas of where the display could go for Blue/White weekend? A tailgate? Let me know if you have any ideas :) It's super cute, but at this point the peeps are not edible. It would be display only. I'd love to find it a happy home.

Have a sweet day!

    Just wanted to thank you in advance. I’ve never had anyone go to the extent of emailing me instructions. I am blown away at your generosity. Thank you for taking time to do this. You are as amazing as your talent!

    I’m going to email you a few tips…but the biggest thing was using my kopykake. I also think a royal icing transfer works for ‘character’ images. I’ll be in touch…check your email! As the mother of a 4-year-old, I understand your plea :)

    All of these are wonderful and I love the story of your first Hallowe’en with your Superman!
    I think you should donate your Peeps Stadium to the stadium or to the local sports announcers booth that will be broadcasting the game.
