a subliminal message

Notes from the baker:

If you should ever need fish cookies, do not start the process the morning of they are needed. Especially when they are needed at noon, for a party at a very nice restaurant, AND you've never used royal icing before.
Also, I'd like to suggest you have a sitter while you are creating such a mess in your kitchen and if you must deliver said cookies. Period.



And now the reason for the sweet treats--besides the fact that the party was Hawaiian themed, and that this family wants me to make sugar cookies for every possible occasion:

Dear Friend Since Second Grade,

I've made these for you today to remind you that there are plenty of fish in the sea. Well, mainly to remind you he's a douchebag, isn't cutting it, and never will. I know I've already tried to sugar-coat this matter before, when I gave you my copy of He's Just Not that Into You, almost five years ago, with some heart sugar cookies and lots of love--but it apparently wasn't enough. Wait you didn't lose that did you? I suspect one is in need of a re-read.

So here I've done it again--sending you sweet subliminal messages in cookie form, with hopes that your 27th year brings you a new school of fish to flounder around with, and finally a great catch!

Looking forward to a keeper!

Your friend forever,

cbm

I love this post AND you are a very good friend!
I hope that she listens to you this time and that she waits for that One- He is out there.
Tell her not to compromise! Just be Patient and Picky and Wait...He is worth it and so is she!

Cass, the cookies are amazing! The bright colors totally do it! And as for your friend, I hope she has the courage to listen to you. In the long run, she will not regret it.

Those cookies are AMAZING!! For real - so cute, so creative, very festive. And for your friend...here's to lots of new fish! I hope she catches one. :)

Cassie, YOU are amazing. You run, you write, you're a great mom, sister, bookmark maker, scrapbooker, and fish cookie decorator. You amaze me, but these cookies are so cute and with a great message behind them. You are a great friend and hopefully you're friend appreciates the yummy humor. Best wishes to her. We all need to date some frogs before we can find our princes (we just can't settle for the frogs ~ we need to expect the princes!) Something like that anyways...anyways. Good job Cass!

Beautiful cookies! I think you should go into business! I got your message about the super hero cape, send me pics! Would love to see it. I haven't come across many little girl aprons and have just winged it when I made a few. I do know that Michael Miller has a tutorial on their blog and Modkidboutique blog has a pattern in her new line. Good luck!

Thanks {Dottie}! I will send you pics when I get to making and completing the cape! It could be a while! ;) But, such a cute idea! Asher would love it! I'll check out those apron tutorials also. Thanks so much!

From experience of wasting 4 years on a cousin to the said "douchebag" I would have LOVED to have been given that as a present from friends or family.

How creative, generous and thoughtful. I hope she gets the message. :) :) You are a wonderful friend to have!!

Ahh, Cassie, you are such a sweetie.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
