Bring on Spring Giveaway and Cutter Offer, Brought to You by Michael Bonne

With tomorrow being the official first day of spring, it seemed only appropriate that we celebrate with a giveaway! Woo hoo!




Thanks to the very generous and talented cookie cutter designer Michael Bonne, dubbed America's Favorite Coppersmith by Martha Stewart, I've got a very special Cookie Connection exclusive for you! Michael is a true artisan whose copper cutters are nothing short of collectible quality, and, as luck would have it, he's designed the following springtime set ("Potting Shed" and "Mini Watering Can") just for this giveaway!

What's more, he's offering 25% off all of the cutters in his Etsy store (through December 31, 2014) to anyone using the coupon code COOKIECONNECTION2014 upon checkout.




Cutter Set Details:

  • As noted earlier, this is the very first "Potting Shed" cutter set; no others will be made until this giveaway is over. Michael will sign the winner's cutters with "The First One" and the winner's name!
  • Retail price (once released) will be $95.
  • "Potting Shed" is 4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches tall. "Mini Watering Can" is 1 3/4 inches wide by 1 1/4 inches tall.
  • Handcrafted solely by Michael from solid copper and food safe solder. Handle is stamped with Michael's maker's marks ("Michael Bonne Made It").
  • Inner design lines emboss the dough; only the outer bands cut the dough. The words "Potting Shed" are just an artistic detail; they will not emboss the dough.

To Enter:

  • Simply tell Michael and me (before April 1, 2014, 5 pm central) why you'd like to win these copper cutters in the comments area below. 
  • Remember, you must be a Cookie Connection member to comment on this site. To join, just click on "Join Community" in the upper left of our home page and follow the sign-up prompts.

Other Giveaway Details:

  • The winner will be determined by random number generator at the close of the giveaway, again on April 1, 5 pm central. The person whose comment position matches the number drawn by the random number generator will win the cutter set.
  • The winner will be put in touch with Michael via email to discuss the cutter inscription and other details about redeeming the prize. The winner must make contact with Michael within a week of the giveaway (by April 8, 5 pm central), or another winner will be selected.

I would love to win this cookie cutter set.  As a new cookier, it would be awesome to work with a copper cutter & I absolutely love the design.  in the daytime, I'm a Principal's Assistant at an Elementary school.  We are celebrating our "Garden To Table" spring planting.  these cookies would be an awesome surprise for the students!

I'm picturing this cutter forming the gable ends of a 3D gingerbread potting shed, or fairy tale cottage as a birthday centrepiece, or snowy Christmas candle holder, with the door and window cut many ideas! even if it was never used, it's too beautiful to put away in a cutter box, it may even have to hang on the Christmas tree!

What would I do with this cutter?? I saw it, and afer the WOW and the OMG.. my head started spinning... my mom is a master gardner, I am always making flower cookies for her... this would make an amazing little garding shed and I am dreaming of decorating it 'Artie McGoo' style - like her house with the little vines on it and the tiny bluebird... and the watering can cutter too... it is too... tooooo cute!!!  (AND when I showed my daughter the phot this morning, she was amazed), I think she wants one, who would not want one!
