Everyone needs a little “Smashing Pumpkins” in their life, right?
My sweet friend Katie was another of the participants in the “Pay It Forward 2011” meme on Facebook, and I made her a dozen of these special cookies. You see, the “Smashing Pumpkins” are her very favorite band ever. To make things extra-special, I jazzed them up by making them both purple (her favorite color) and sparkly-silver (her second favorite color).
(Disclaimer: I have no idea what Katie’s second favorite color really is, but I know she likes glitter!)
Each cookie is slightly different based just on how the silver luster dust was applied. Some are heavy on glitter, and some are light. And, of all the purples I’ve made so far, this rich, royal purple was my very favorite take. It was so luscious, and I really should’ve taken a picture even before I applied the silver luster!
I mailed these cookies to Katie on Friday, and by the time I checked my email today (Monday), she had already received them and left glowing compliments in my inbox – how amazing! I’m glad she loves them so much, and I wouldn’t fault her one bit if she chooses not to share with her family! *wink*
My mom and aunt are doing the.same thing!
The “Pay It Forward” meme? It’s been so fun already, but I still have one set left to make. I didn’t actually intend to make each person cookies when I signed up, but that’s the way it’s worked out. 🙂
I found you from your post in Bakebakebake. I’ve been scrolling through enjoying all of your awesome cookies and I got way too excited over these! They are my favorite band & purple is my favorite color as well! So I just wanted to say thanks for sharing this awesomeness & making me smile!
