First, I thought it would be neat if I mailed some Duke cookies to my son in law who is a big fan.....okay, I know...this in not the Blue Devil color. The smaller ones (not in this picture) are more like it. But he enjoyed them all and ate the "rivals".
Then, I somehow got this notion that the people I work with might like some. The area I work in is BIG into Alabama and Auburn. So I made two samples.
But no one wanted them...if they wouldn't be so challenging I might feel sad...so that's the kind of thing I count as my schooling...practice. It's good for the soul.
And then I just went crazy and made some for the coaching staff at my Alma Mater....and since we were going to the game...and since we knew someone connected to the athletic department who thought they would be much appreciated...what else could I do? Just how hard can those letters be? Yeah, right... How much are those Kopykakes???
So, I copied (gasp) a logo and when I couldn't do it by visual reference, out popped the scissors and the food pen.
