Some would argue that there’s no better way to support your favorite football team than with a gathering of friends, all donning the appropriate officially licensed team gear (jerseys, hats, jackets, etc), everyone manhandling ungodly amounts of meat and alcoholic beverage. Sure, wearing your team colors, painting your chest in red and white, and boisterously letting loose frequent guttural pig calls is one way to proclaim your devotion to the Razorback army. But allow me propose another option — cookies. It may be a tad more subtle, but it’s sure to get everyone’s attention. And you don’t have time to slave away within the unbearable heat of an oven all night either, you’ve got more important things to do in preparation for the game — buying beer, scorching hot dogs, opening up the bags of potato chips — those things take precious time. Let someone else do the cookie cutting for you. Allow me to introduce Ann Potter Baking.
She operates out of a rental space with Palette Catering, and while she does not have a storefront, she currently sells her wares via special order.
I happened to need a few treats for a recent event which just happened to center around football — I knew no better way to express my feelings for the Razorbacks than with cookies. Ann Potter Baking, luckily, brought its proverbial A-game that day. I ordered a handful of themed goods — simple and easy, and I was the undisputed hero of the party. Though I was tempted to take credit for the skilled labor so clearly required in the careful preparation of these treats, I gave all glory to Sarah and her bakeshop.
The cookies were stunning, beautifully designed and crafted. These are not an amateur effort, a far cry from your run-of-the-mill grocery store sugar cookie. These are artistically forged, handcrafted products. Crisp, clean lines. Smooth, polished icing. The beauty is readily apparent in every detail.
All Sarah’s creations are sugar-cookie-based, but the designs atop these cookies vary greatly. She doesn’t stop at Razorback cookies either. She’s able to produce a wide range of themed delights, able to accommodate customers needing gifts and treats for nearly any event — birthdays, showers, weddings, graduations, or just about any other celebration (More examples of what Sarah can do after the jump).
You can get yourself some cookies from Ann Potter Baking by contacting Sarah at email@example.com. Let her know if you’ve got any special requests or questions. You can see more examples of her work, including prices, at her website.
