A very good friend of mine is running for Selectman in her hometown. Her kick off event for her campaign was this last night and I brought cookies for the big event. My original plan was make cookies that look like her bumper stickers. But I wasn't thrilled when I originally started baking them. Because the cookie cuter was so large I wasn't getting nearly enough cookies. So, I decided to break out my circle cutters and make campaign buttons to bring with the bumper stickers!
Once I started using the circles I was a lot happier and getting much more cookies. I decided to use different size circles for the buttons. I made almost 100 cookies and it was definitely time consuming. Late into Thursday night when I was decorating I realized that I wasn't got to get all the detail work done that I was hoping to do. The tiny cookies only ended up just saying the candidates last name- but I think it ended up looking okay.
Overall I was pretty happy with how this came out. I liked how they displayed together at the event. The candidate was very happy and that was the most important thing!
