At the bakery, we get countless phone calls of customers telling us they have a friend who does not like cake. Cookies are the perfect option, but it often begs the question, how do I decorate a cookie to make my friend/loved one/ family member feel special? We've come up with a way to do this that is simple, tasty and the end result can be as beautiful or personal as you want it to be. We are challenging you, our readers, to re-think the cookie cake.
Every time a customer calls to place an order, that person is asked “would you like to include a note inside the cookie box?” Very often the usual “yes” is accompanied by “Just throw in your usual birthday note” or “His mom just passed away; what do people normally write?” The truth is, we don’t have a usual birthday note, and our customers don’t normally write anything.
Hello, my name is Miri, and I kill plants. Don’t get me wrong, I have the best of intentions when I’m picking out that hydrangea or basil plant, but in the end I just cannot keep them alive. It’s not like I can’t care for things. I have two dogs who I’ve kept alive for seven years (SEVEN!). But when it comes to plants, I have a black thumb all around - I simply just do not have the knowledge or skills to nuture them.
