Mimi Giraffes

A terrific client asked for "Mimi Giraffes" for her granddaughter's birthday. When she first asked, I started Googling "Mimi Giraffes" because I thought maybe it was another new fad theme for kids that I've missed..... like so many others. lol

But then my client shared this story. 

"My granddaughter received a giraffe blanket when she was born and has held on to it ever since.  For whatever reason she named the blanket Mimi.  Mimi has a lot of miles on her as well as some battle scars.  She was accidentally left outside one day and her dog decided he would love on it.  By the time her mom realized where Mimi was and went out to find her, she was missing a tiny bit of a corner.  Mimi has been with my granddaughter through thick and thin.  Even accompanied her to the O.R. when she had her tonsils removed.  To her..... every giraffe is not just a giraffe but a "Mimi giraffe".  This child is obsessed about Mimi Giraffes."

So I tried to make the cookies look like the cake that was being made for the event. Plus I wanted a nice sturdy cookie that didn't break easily in shipment, so I just make big ovals and created the shape on top. Worked out perfect.
May I present to you......the CookieCrazie version of Mimi Giraffes......



This just in......"A"'s photo with her real "Mimi Giraffe" and one of my cookies. Don't you just love it! And check out her matching skirt and jewelry. :))))))))


Makes me smile too. :)

Cute!  Mimi is actually a cute way many people say-to sleep.  Like "Ready to go mimis?"  or "Go mimi"  or "Time for mimis"  This is so sweet!
