Recently, a friend brought our community together in Pennsylvania for a farewell brunch for her daughter who will be deployed to Afghanistan.
People brought beautiful dishes and their best wishes for Nia who will be gone for a year.
The proud mama had decorated the room in purple, Nia's favorite color.
To contribute to the theme and the occasion I made these purple camouflage cookies.
There was a Nutella station, in honor of Nia's favorite dessert.
Once everyone had eaten, we all lit a candle and made a wish for Nia.
To make the cookies, I used Sweet Sugarbelle's excellent camouflage cookie tutorial. The sugar cookie and royal icing recipes were both from Bake at 350.
What better way to send a soldier off than surrounded by her loving family and friends and covered in frosting?
Best Wishes Nia and THANK YOU for your service!
