My friend and prolific cook, baker and mixologist John Apodaca, founder of Daddy-O’s Martinis and Johnny’s Pies & Cakes, recently created tray after tray of glazed sugar cookies for a Memorial Day party. He shaped them as stars and glazed them in red, white, and blue. They turned out so glossy and color saturated I couldn’t resist photographing them, knowing I would think of something to do with the photos. A few days later I hit on the idea of turning the cookies into a fabric pattern, and voila – a unique patriotic print was born! I painstakingly cut out each cookie from the original photo and placed them all on an antique white background giving the pattern an old fashioned, early twentieth-century appearance.
