My daughter Penny Jane and I have begun a campaign we call "cookies for love".We make and share cookies to celebrate love and fight racism and hatred.

There is an alt right protest today at a park across the street from me.My partners will prob stay home but I going to attempt to hand out these Cookies for Love.No one hates cookies, right?...These were inspired by @sweetsugarbelle a and her amazing polar pals which is actually the first set of cookies I ever fell in love with.She is what made me decide to try decorating with her wonderful and hysterical blog and tutorials.I worship her and her brilliant talent.#resist #cookielove #xmascookies #sweetsugarbelle #notmypresident #decoratedcookies #decoratedsugarcookies #cookies#edibleart #handmade #homemade #noracism #nohate

Cookies for Love handed out tropical themed cookies today in Brooklyn.Every person I spoke with was still shaken by the events of the weekend in Charlottesville as well as the horrendous violence that's overtaking our country.I am hoping it will change soon as people are fundamentally good.Trying to be positive and continue to spread love one cookie at a time.Having Penny and Wilbur as partners makes seeing joy and happiness a whole lot easierπŸ’•#cookielove #resist #edibleart #pineapple #decoratedcookies #decoratedsugarcookies #sugarcookies #love #notmypresident #royalicing #tropical

Having a hard time understanding why things like Charlottesville happen.I guess I am naive but I believed America was about diversity and unity.I was raised in Manhattan and I am white and everyone around me was from somewhere else with different views and I guess I thought that was the way the rest of the country was.But things look very different right now and me and Penny and Wilbur clearly have a lot more work to do and a lot more cookies to hand out.I do believe the only way to fight hate is with positive action so we will keep on making Cookies for Love and reaching out to others.We spent today handing out these woodland creatures looking to make someone smile. #cookies #thisishowwedo #weekend #p #puglife #royalicing #resist #notmypresident #edibleart #woodland #animals #wearenotgivingup

Cookies for Love will be handing out lots of minis tomorrow to spread love and community feeling.We all need to take a stand against bigotry,racism and misogyny before we find ourselves buried by hatred.Celebrate our differences and embrace our commonalities.Penny and I are asking everyone to join in spreading love.#cookies #thisishowwedo #weekend #resist #royalicing #decoratedsugarcookies #decoratedcookies #minis #notmypresident #notnormal #endracism #edibleart #handmade #homemade

I got inspired by the whole Xmas in July thing so I broke out my new stencils that I have been itching to play with.I think we may confuse people when we hand these out on our Cookies for Love mission, spreading love on cookie at a time and fighting hatred.Penny and I will be handing these out all over Washington Square Park today.We all need to appreciate each other's differences and celebrate our sameness.That said, these sure were fun to make!#cookies #thisishowwedo #weekend #notmypresident #resist #love #sugarcookies #decoratedcookies #edibleart #royalicing #xmasinjuly #stencil #airbrush #sharethelove

So Penny and I were handing out our Cookies for Love today and I was giving them my usual spiel about how we are promoting love and compassion thru acts of kindness.They asked why and I said there's so much hate right now in the country and Trump is making it worse.One guy looked at me and said "then I can't take one as I voted for him".I tried to explain that it was about love not politics to no avail.He just looked at me blankly as I went on and on...then I saw later eating his wife's cookie,Forgot to mention all these fabulous stencils are from @8dayappalachia .#resist#cookies#love #sugarcookies #edibleart #notmypresident#thisishowwedo#decoratedcookies #decoratedsugarcookies #handmade #sothathappened #cookiesofinstagram #royalicing#thathappened#awkward

And the airbrush obsession continues...Penny and I will be handing out these colorful Cookies for Love this weekend.Hopefully we will bring some love to someone's weekend.In these scary times, everyone could use a hug...or a cookie.Maybe both.#cookiesofinstagram #homemade #airbrush #sparkle #stencil #love#decoratedcookies #decoratedsugarcookies #cookies #cookielove #edibleart #resist #notmypresident #thisishowwedo #handmade #weekend

A flowery bunch of Cookies for Love ready to go and spread some love and good will.Penny and I will be giving these out today.We all need to rebuild our community and country through compassion and kindness as it's becoming morally bankrupt and uncaring to its neediest members!
On a different note, I am obsessed with my airbrush and this amazing silver sparkleπŸ€—#handmade #love #notmypresident #resist #cookies #cookielove #decoratedcookies #decoratedsugarcookies #edibleart #royalicing #homemade #cookiesofinstagram #airbrush #sparkle #flowers
