Yes, it's the World Herald. I think the article with photo will appear in their on-line edition, as well.

Bummer, bummer, bummer! Even though they were going to use my photo of my cookies for the article, they didn't. They used one that the author of the article put together after trying out the recipe. It's okay, but not even remotely close to mine! She iced the pieces all in white and then covered them in sprinkles. It looks more blob shaped than anything, and the whole 3D effect is kinda lost. Sigh. I should've known it wouldn't turn out like I had hoped.

Congratulations, Gemini! Thank God she posted a copy of your cookies, b'cuz her's did not do your cookies any justice. Also, pls. send me the details regarding your cutters. I've been admiring them for a while.

I just saw the article. That lady (the author) should be ashamed of herself and that cookie! LOL My goodness...I try to stay on the positive about people's creations, but good heavens! She had the nerve to cut a gingerbread man cookie in half, then put the feet back on with the marshmallows. Even a blind person would be able to see that there is a huge and distinct difference between hers and gemini's cookies!
Hers looks like the stay-puffed marshmallow man lost a lot of weight and is carrying his excess "marshmallow fat" in his lap! LOL
I'm sorry you guys...I just can't resist! Please don't think I'm mean, cuz you know you're probably laughing...cuz it's funny!!! icon_razz.gificon_biggrin.gif

Gemini...congratulations for being put in the paper. Your cookies are awesome!

Angela...don't feel guilty, sweetie. You already said in your previous post that you weren't trying to be negative. I don't think anything you said was negative. Bottom line is, Gemini's cookies seem easy to make, and that lady could've at least used the kit, to try to keep the idea/integrity of Gemini's cookies and that would've showed even better how anyone can do it.

Thanks Angela & Jennifer for the nice comments! I hadn't been able to check the on-line article, and only saw the newspaper article that did not have my photo. My husband laughed and said the reporter's cookie looked like it had enormous breasts! I was bummed at first, but I've let it all go now. I just got back from a long trip to visit my parents, and it put things in perspective. Luckily, my dad is showing improvement with his new chemo drug, so we're all trying to stay positive that this will give him more time. I can't wait to catch up on what's been happening on CC!

hi gemini, sorry to hear about your dad. when a parent gets sick it is so stressful. my dad had a major stroke this past june while vacationing in vegas and getting him home to tx was so difficult. he ended up being paralyzed all on his right side. he is almost 100 percent better and what a relief. he really pushed himself to get his movement back. so i truly know what its like to have a father ill. i sincerely hope your father does well with the chemo and that he gets all better. gee seems like their are so many people on here going through so much right now. how sad, but at the same time we all have each other on here. big hug!!!
