Where'd you go Bernadette

I joined a book club!
I have always wanted to be in a book club but never had the opportunity.
When my friend told me she was creating one I was thrilled and couldn't wait to start reading out first book which happened to be Where'd you go Bernadette by Maria Semple (who was a writer for Arrested Development)

Here is a quick blurb about the book:
This novel was so much fun. A comic novel with mystery thrown it, it is a joy to read. After Bernadette moves with her husband, a Microsoft employee, and 15-year old daughter to Seattle, she becomes very unhappy with the neighborhood and people she meets, especially the moms for the private school. She is a revolutionary architect, but stopped working for unknown reasons, and stays home most of the time. One day she disappears and her daughter won’t stop trying to find her.

As soon as I saw the cover of the book I knew I would be making cookies for our first meeting.  The style of the cover gave me a chance to do some more experimenting with my airbrush.  

 I am still learning how to use my airbrush and have a long way to go.  For these cookies I made 3 stencils out of tagboard to mask different aspects of the cookie while I airbrushed.  

The rest of the cookies were painted by hand.  They were a huge success at the first meeting.  

The next book is The Golem and the Jinni...

I can't wait to get started on these cookies!!!!

Stay Sweet everyone <3
