With non-stop traffic, hotels completely wrapped in movie advertisements and thousands of people casually dressed in the costume of their favorite superhero or movie character, it’s hard to ignore Comic-Con when it comes to town every July. This star-studded and extremely well attended convention invades San Diego every summer and as locals, we can’t get enough of it! We love to see the excitement radiating through the downtown streets, as well as the opportunity to make some super(hero) cookie creations.
In the past we have always gone above and beyond with our Comic-Con themed cookies and it was no different this time around! Our talented chefs created 12 (!) different styled cookies from Superman to Beauty and the Beast.
Not only was it important for the Comic-Con cookies to look perfect, we also wanted their flavors to match the theme of the decorations. Our pink donut Simpsons cookie was an IPA beer cookie, to match Homer’s love of the malty beverage! Our Beauty and the Beast cookie was a romantic and rose colored Red Velvet dough and dark, mysterious Batman was a chocolate truffle cookie filled with even more chocolate in the form of dark and milk chocolate chunks.
On Friday morning co-owner, Adam Koven, met the San Diego Fox 5 news team at The Hard Rock Hotel for a Comic-Con cookie segment! With the news team all dressed up and our cookies out on display, they were all ready for a good time. Adam discussed our Comic-Con cookies and even let the news hosts try their hand at decorating the Simpsons and Minion cookies!
We sure do love a great theme to run with when it comes to creating specialty cookies and Comic-Con is one of our favorites! Wonder what cookies we’ll be seeing next July….
