Bauhaus Goethe und Schiller

New Goethe & Schiller Cookie Cutters!

New Goethe & Schiller Cookie Cutters!

Today I broke my pattern and instead of going directly to and from the Weimar Office, I wandered through town after Coffee and Cake.

It was no surprise to me when I found the most recent permutation of Weimar’s never ending Goethe and Schiller worship: The Cookie Cutters.

No longer is it suffice to buy Goethe and Schiller chocolates, Goethe and Schiller busts, or Goethe and Schiller portraits to take home, one must buy these bargain priced (at 2.90€ each) cookie cutters so that come Christmas Eve, Santa can chow down on cookies in the shape of their heads.

I think the strangest thing about the cookie cutters is that the label specifically notes that they were designed by Julia Kaulbersch of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Congratulations to Ms. Kaulbersch, because, honestly, I have to confess that I’m surprised it hadn’t been done before.

I’m not actually sure the word “design” applies, because in my book, it was more of a brain-storming session addressing the question, “What forms haven’t Goethe and Schiller taken yet?”

Now that Ms. Kaulbersch is gaining fame and fortune as the Goethe und Schiller cookie cutter designer, I need to work harder—and come up with my own indelible Goethe und Schiller product.

There must be something out there…
