Carol’s ‘Acorn & Beet’ Cookie Necklace

second one

“They’re pink”



“Beets…it’s what makes them sweet”

“I’m not really a beet kind of guy”

“just put it in your mouth, jerk”

If you are a Carol fan from The Walking Dead you remember those lines from a recent episode. Carol is my favourite. I love the duality of her nature. On one hand, she is the casserole and cookie Queen…on the other, a warrior who will get the job done.

Many of us women are like her, I think. It’s why she’s so popular. We love our families, we are peacekeepers, caretakers, and often the glue in our relationships…but we also know that in a zombie apocalypse, or any scenario that threatened those we love, out comes the claws.  Don’t mess with our Carol!

I loved the scene with her cheerfully picking out her perfectly pressed blouse and cardi from her closet, only to get zombie blood splattered all over it in the next scene. The exasperation on her face was priceless.

…Anyway… I love her ability to bake up goodies from foraging for acorns and a depleted stock of canned goods.

Inspired by her ingenuity, I made the cookies from that episode into a multi-media necklace for myself. It’s made of polymer clay, wood, and paper. Tucked behind, on another board, is Carol’s cheerful face, in a modified sketch design:

The cookies have a hint of pink, just like on the show

And, in the event that you want to make these cookies- the edible version- a blogger at Ready Nutrition has posted the recipe!

I create miniature food sculpts (mainly dollhouse scale), out of my home, in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. I live surrounded by the beauty of local orchards and rolling farmlands. When my kids leave for school, I set to work, often in my pajamas, with my clingy miniature schnauzer, Lenny, at my feet. I create only what interests or inspires me. My focus is on quality not quantity. While I often have only a few pieces available, they are very detailed as I continue to build my skill. If you are interested in having me make you something special, please visit my Facebook page and leave me a message
