On Friday (before the mounds and mounds of snow fell) we, along with fellow designers Brooke Voss and Martina Willegalle, competed in a cookie bake at the Wolf/ Sub Zero showroom, Roth Distributing.  Our cookie of choice: Ina Garten’s Ginger Cookies!

We had a fantastic time baking and decorating our cookies in their state-of-the-art kitchens.  Here are some of the pictures from our afternoon of baking:

(Top to bottom: One of the beautiful kitchens at the Roth Showroom in Minnetonka; our lovely “Team Spice”; the delicious ginger cookies with frosting in the shape of very stylish lamps; all of the cookies from all 3 teams along with the lamp from Collection on 5 and a table cloth made of F. Schumacher fabrics that served as our inspriation.)
