Denim Day Cookies

     Last Thursday was Denim Day and Pattycakes and Cookies was asked to participate for a second year in a row. The YWCA of Bergen County, Rape Crisis Center partnered with the three Panico Salons in New Jersey to raise awareness of sexual assault. At Panico Salon in Ridgewood, everyone wore jeans, the salon was decorated and they had a buffet. Rape Crisis brochures were available to explain the great work they do, and conversations were encouraged between mothers and daughters about sexual assault. Of course, denim day cookies were supplied by Pattycakes and Cookies and were available for a small donation. All money raised went to the support of the Rape Crisis Center.

     The cookies were made in the shape of a pair of pants. We made the cookie cutter ourselves from some metal flashing. They were a sugar cookie, covered in blue, white chocolate fondant. Some were solid blue and some were stone washed and acid washed looking. Details of stitching, pockets and belt loops were added for a final touch. They were then individually wrapped and delivered to the three Panico Salons.
     We had a great time at Panico, meeting with Jack Panico, his wonderful staff and getting a tour of their beautiful full service salon. Hopefully, we will be invited to participate next year.
