When I was a kid we had a couple Japanese exchange students stay with our family and they would often bring kokeshi as a gift. I still have those lovely dolls and wouldn't turn down a cookie version either!
Clearly someone is welcoming a new little girl into the world here. The matryoshka cookies especially look so motherly and nurturing. They'll take extra good care of a new mother with their iced sweetness. Plenty of my friends have kids but I can easily say that none of them have had such expertly made adorable treats at a shower. Up the ante, friends!
It's time to start thinking about buying new sweaters and resisting the urge to wear them while it's still too hot out. Time to sharpen your pencils and buy a new spiral notebook. Time to get your boots re-soled and stock up on tights. Time to eat some apple shaped cookies!
Themed birthdays are something I never had the pleasure of as a child. I mean sure, I had matching paper plate, napkins and cardboard party hats all with Barbie on them, but disposable paper products do not a theme make. I was never a big Spider Man fan as a kid, but now that I'm thirty-something I wouldn't turn up my nose at these cookies.
