Every once in awhile something big comes along, and today is a pretty big day in Memphis. We had some tornado warnings earlier this afternoon, (probably more to come tonight), our hometown NBA team the Grizzlies, are playing Game 4 in the playoffs downtown tonight, and the movie Something Borrowed which is slated to open May 5, has a mini premiere right here in Memphis. Here's the trailer for the movie, which looks adorable.
Why Memphis? Well, the movie stars Ginnifer Goodwin, a Memphis native, and is directed by Molly Smith, also a Memphis native (and alum at our favorite all girl's high school). So they are having a family and friends event tonight and were making gift bags for the attendees. And, they needed something sweet.
So, if you needed logo cookies and diamond ring cookies who would you call? Me! It turns out the gal that emailed me had my cookies at a baby shower, and she thought they were cute and delicious! So I baked and piped and glittered and bagged and bowed! They are pretty darn cute. My dining room was taken over! The theme of the movie, obviously, is a pending wedding, thus the diamond ring cookies.
They are iced and then "painted" with a food safe silver and and the facets of the diamond are glittered with the most fabulous edible glitter. The logos are a simple "sobo" which I am guessing they used as the slang term for the movie since the title is so long.
So, we'll all have to wait until next week to see the movie, but tonight, I will start on the book, and nibble a few reject cookies. This is my first movie premiere, I did TV pilot cookies a while back (and got tweeted). Who knows what's coming next! This week, no baking. But I'll be back in there next week! So, what are you waiting for?
