Dr. Seuss 111

3/03/2015 Edit This 1 Comment »

Dr. Seuss wrote a book;
Not a moose book, or goose book,
Nor even a Zeus juice book,
But a book about Sam (or Sam-I-Am),
About some green eggs, about some ham;
About Mr. Brown, who can Moo (can you?);
He wrote about Horton hearing a Who;
The Cat in the Hat, Thing One and Thing Too,
And his Zeds and his Zeep could fill a Who zoo,
Though who'd put a Zeep in a zoo? (Would you?);
About a fox in socks,
About boxing a Gox;
Red fish, blue fish,
And an Ish wish dish;
About Zans and Zax,
And a strange Lorax;
Mr. Grinch, his dog, Max, and the Christmas that came;
Without Dr. Seuss books would not be the same.
On Theodore Geisel's eleventy-first birthday
Generations of children would just like to say:
"Oh, thank you, oh, thank you! A wonderful day!"

Renaissance Jousting Knights Cookies

7/24/2012 Posted In , , , , Edit This 0 Comments »

As you know, I love Medieval manuscripts, so when I ran into these gorgeous images from the 15th-century Italian Capodilista Codex, I knew I had to turn them into cookies. The knights are arrayed in their gorgeous jousting armor, the horses and banners are rich in color. I made these cookies with my trusty 2"x3" cutter from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set, piped beige borders with a #16 star tip, and gilded them with Wilton Pearl Dust in Gold. My son is just a toddler, so he doesn't understand anything about knights yet, but I bet he will in a few years, and then I'll be making them again for a boys' playdate or party!
