After I got back from CookieCon, I jumped right into making cookies for the Go Bo Bake Sale. I had a very small amount of time to make the cookies and get them out to the Go Bo organizers, so I decided on some pretty simple Frankenstein cookies. I was going to use my Frankenstein cookie cutter that I designed last year for Halloween, but my 3D printer was acting up and I needed a smaller size cutter. I went through my stash of Halloween cutters and found a Wilton Frankenstein head and decided that would work fine. Last year I made a whole bunch of designs of really fun and exciting Halloween cookies for the Go Bo Bake Sale, but this year was a very tight timeline directly after getting back from CookieCon, so I went with only one design and a simple design at that. Since we used to do a lot of money raising and awareness against Cancer with the LiveStrong Challenge, it felt good to be a part of the Go Bo Bake Sale. Bo was an amazing young boy that lost his battle to Cancer at the very young age of 13. Bo had a mission, his message was simple ... "Love each other, help each other, have your neighbor's back. If you see someone in need — even a stranger — reach out and help. The world can be a better place if we care and help each other." The Go Bo! Foundation brings hope to children with life-threatening medical conditions by funding research, supporting treatment, and helping their families during times of financial need. The Go Bo! Foundation is Bo's gift to us. It's a way for each of us to use our talent to give back. It’s a community of people gathering together with a single mindset ... paying it forward.

This year I went a very simplistic way and just made some smaller Frankenstein heads using this Wilton Frankenstein cookie cutter
I started by outlining my design
and then I used simple royal icing eyes that were pre-made.
Then I filled in the electric green for his face, black for his hair and light grey for the bolts in his neck. Easy peasy.
Then just because I wanted to, I made a few using my design of Frankenstein cookie cutter.
and I found this fun bag at Target and gave a couple of these fun Frankenstein cookies to my grand babies.
and I packaged up all the Go Bo cookies for the Bake Sale.

My daughter came over for a craft day and together we made this Frankenstein shirt for my grandson. He took a nose dive so his little face has an owie, but still absolutely adorable and he loves his Frankenstein shirt!
