Semper Fi! (said with cookies)

Last year, my friend Nicole contacted me with a special request. Her oldest baby was set to join the United States Marines, and she needed cookies for his send-off party. We met as Air Force wives, and although it was the “wrong” branch of service, I was happy to oblige. I was also obligated to shed just a few tears with my friend in the process, too. πŸ˜‰

Now, this post is looooooong overdue, because Jacob has now been a fully-fledged Marine for over 9 months!

And these little uniformed dudes are my favorite cookies of the whole bunch! Seriously, sugared icing makes a Marine uniform go from sexy to adorable instantly! πŸ™‚

Marines cookie.

And of course, the famous (but not easy!) Marines logo:

Marine Corps Logo cookie.

And then a much easier take on the Marines, to offset the difficulty of the previous cookie:

USMC cookie.

And then just a few golden eagles & personalized dog tags to round out the rest of the cookie assortment, too.

And I know that Nicole is SO PROUD of her handsome & courageous young Marine, and I wish Jacob the very best in his military career. SEMPER FI! β™₯

      Mikayla, I’m so sorry for the delay! I so very rarely have time to update my blog/website anymore, and I do not see comments until I go to make a change over here. Please always be sure to send an email for any order requests –

      If you can send a NEW email with the date (or approximate!) of your event in the subject line, I can be sure to sort your inquiry into the correct month, too.

    These are AMAZING!! My son leaves for boot camp in less than 2 weeks…I wish that I had seen this sooner! I would have definitely ordered for his party this weekend! You are very talented!

  24. Michele on said:

    You are so talented! These are exactly what I was looking for my sons USMC Boot Camp graduation party. Can you tell me what the cost would be for 2 dozen of these darling cookies sent to California?

    • Nicole on said:

      Michela, I tried to send you an email to the address used to leave this comment, but it was returned as undeliverable. I do hope you come back & see this reply! Be sure to respond in a new EMAIL to me, as comments here on the blog/website are unreliable.

      The USMC assortment of cookies is $48/dozen ($4/each). This assortment includes a variety of unique and fun designs, as well as some that can also be personalized (skin tone for uniformed soldier, name or phrase for dog tags, a special message cookie, if desired). Once you let me know the total quantity needed, I create a fun spread of the designs across that number of cookies. I would need the following information to start:

      Skin tone –
      Name or phrase –
      Special Message (optional, if desired) –

      Shipping is additional, based on the mailing location. If you will send along your mailing address, I’ll be happy to give you a complete quote.

      Lastly, I will need to know the specific date you will need cookies to arrive, too.

      Thanks for thinking of my cookies! Please let me know if you have any further questions. πŸ™‚
