Go Boo! cookies for the Go Bo! Foundation Bake sale!

(pssssst....there's a bake sale coming)

It's funny that when we think about angels, we imagine they have wings and halos.

And maybe some of them do.
Maybe they float and fly and watch over us all from up above.

But...what if there were other angels?

What if they looked just like everybody else....but their spirit shined just a bit brighter.

What if they inspired everyone around them to see things differently,
to help any way they could,
to appreciate all the small things that are taken for granted everyday.

What if the courage of one young boy, with a form of cancer he could no longer fight, used the last of his strength to inspire hundreds and thousands of people to help other kids win their fight.

Would you call him an angel?

I would.

This angel's name was Bo Johnson.
He left this world on September 28th 2012, at the age of 12,
but his inspiration and love has only grown.

The Go Bo Support Group that lifted his spirits, has become the 
Go Bo Foundation and continues to pay it forward in his honor.

They are working hard to paint the world orange and keep Bo's spirit alive.

This year I'm thrilled to be participating in the 2nd annual Go Bo! Foundation Bake sale,

Along with hundreds of other bakers, we have painted the nation orange!

If you're in Wisconsin I hope you'll stop by the event.
It's grown so big it now spans two weekends,
October 12th and October 20th.

This year the cookies are all Halloween and Autumn themed.

(Since Bo was quite the jokester, I'm thinking he might have liked the humor of a Go Boo! cookie 
for the Go Bo! Foundation)

If you are too far away, you can still make a donation to the foundation on their website.


perhaps you'll also be inspired by Bo and find a way to help in your own community.

Go Bo!

Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B

  1. Incredible cause. These cookies are awesome Lizzy. Please can you tell me how you get the icing to dry and look this perfectly smooth and even. I am constantly dealing with butter bleeds. I also got a dehydrator but having issues with rippling and sometimes the icing is cracking in the dehydrator. Any advice will be appreciated, please.

    1. Hi Asmita! Try letting your cookies sit a bit longer before you decorate them. I like to wait overnight for best results. I haven't used a dehydrator myself (I think Lilaloa has a few tutorials to check out), I like using a fan. You may need more meringue powder in your's a link to the recipe I use

  2. Sounds like such a great organization! And these cookies are simply adorable :) Stopping by from the Thursday's Favorite Things hop, and I'd love for you to drop by my blog if you get the chance. Have a great weekend!
