POLICE SHIELD COOKIES/ Black Icing



Do you remember as a kid eating the bright red flower on a party cake? Do you remember how your lips turned red just like the flower? The same occurs with all intense colors. Black is the most potent and even the small amount of black icing on these Zebra Stripe Cookies can turn lips black. That is the reason I decorate cookies with black icing very rarely and very sparingly. A few years ago, my niece and I made Thin Blue Line Cookies in the accurate colors of blue and black of the thin blue line, the symbol of law enforcement officers. I realized the mistake of going all black with those cookies, when at the first bite my three-year-old grand nephew had black lips, teeth and tongue. To avoid embarrassment at the retirement party for which the cookies were made, we packaged the cookies in favor bags for guests to take-away from the party.

So these Police Shield Cookies for a police theme 5th birthday party for my grand nephew, were decorated in gray with thin black and blue lines to mimic the thin blue line. In keeping with the theme of the day, the yard was decked out with yellow police tape and a mug shot lineup taped to the wall. The kids later toured the local police department where they asked our men/women in blue all kinds of questions. They sang Happy Birthday and enjoyed cupcakes and cookies in the daily briefing room. Who knows, there may be some future recruits in that bunch of kindergarteners.

HEART COOKIES/ Why Only Romance



Valentine’s Day is a romantic holiday and a special day for many. My husband and I prefer to keep it low-key with a nice dinner at home and a spray of carnations. As a romantic holiday, I wish it was not exclusive leaving so many out. Honestly speaking, when I was single for many years Feb 14 was a day I dreaded. For those without a significant other it can be a lonely day. It was not easy to see co-workers receive deliveries of pretty red roses with plans for a romantic dinner after work, while my desk sat empty and my evening to be spent eating a Stouffer’s microwave dinner and watching Jeopardy. Besides the single crowd there’s the husband or wife, young or old, now widowed when this day once special is another painful day on the calendar. I think the romance of Valentine’s Day is a nice thing and my intention is not to be a spoil-sport, but wouldn’t it be nice if it was simply a day to extend love, goodness and peace to everyone. You remember, like we did as little kids when everyone in the classroom got a Valentine from every classmate. I think we had it right back then so no one was left out. Having said all that, I wish each and every one of you a Happy Valentine’s Day filled with kindness, friendship and joy from those you love.

Instead of the traditional colors of red and pink associated with this holiday, these cookies were decorated in yellow for friendship, and blue denoting peace and harmony. We could all use a little bit of both.
