The art of cookie-decorating (and cookie-eating)

There's an art to cookie decoration, and also to cookie-eating. (Who knew?)

We stopped over at the Spectrum Gallery's CookiePalooza! fundraiser at the DeKoven Center on Saturday and carefully watched Maya Flores Farley, who is 5 1/2, as she went through the various steps: Licking the frosting, burying the cookie in sprinkles, carefully testing it, and then chomping away for what we're guessing will turn out to be a day-long sugar high. Maya is the daughter of Tom Farley, news editor of the Journal Times.


  1. In the interest of good journalism, Maya's last name is not hyphenated, according to her mother.
    The photos are quite cute, though.
