Mustang Cookies


The very creative Kristen called me the other day requesting a special order.  Ron, her father had just passed away and she asked me to recreate in cookie his 1965 Mustang for favors at the funeral.  She made a tag to put on the cookies that explained the history of the car and how it was passed to Ron by his father and restored by him.

On the tag she also had a picture of Ron's father giving him the car!  When she told me that it nearly brought me to tears.  It really brought home that you can never take too many pictures because they become priceless treasures when we no longer have our loved ones with us.  He sounded like such a special man and I was very honored to be a part of the celebration of his life.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family right now.



Don't forget to hug your loved ones and take lots of pictures.

  2. This is the first time I've heard of cookie favors given out at a funeral and I think Kristen devised a very personal and truly wonderful little tribute to her father in this manner. It must have been an emotional order, not to mention a very large one for you to fill. Your depiction of Kristen's father's 1965 Mustang is excellent. What a lovely honour for you to be a part of the celebration of Ron's life in this way.
    My sincere condolences to Kristen and her family on their loss.

  3. What a special task you had and what a sweet daughter. You did such a great job with the perspective, making it look 3D.
