A friend requested cookies for his fiance's grandmother, who is visiting America from Germany. Incorporating the German and U.S. flags was an obvious choice, so I planned my design and rolled with it; however, late in the game, my friend (a guy), casually let me know that his future grandmother-in-law also loves orange polka dots (and could I somehow add them to the order?).
Typical guy -- leave out that vital piece of information until late in the game. No biggie, right?
So I scrambled, and the result was a rather colorful assortment of international hearts that would probably confuse most, despite the fact that they go together perfectly ... like Wiener Schnitzel and apple pie.
