Yes, ABT, we like sugar plums. But also ‘Nutcracker’ cookies!


Where cookies are concerned, we discreetly morph from ‘fussy critic’ to the more relaxed mode of ‘indiscriminate gobbler.’ Gosh, these ballet-themed cookies (photos mixed with those of our favorite ABT dancers) make our mouths water.

They are the charming creation of Blackmarket Bakery whose award-winning chef Rachel Klemek celebrates American Ballet Theatre’s production of “The Nutcracker,” choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky, now on at Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

The balletic munchables depict a romantic ballerina from the Dance of the Flowers and the heroic Nutcracker Prince. Based on the production’s costumes by Tony®Award-winning designer Richard Hudson, the delectables are on sale from December 1 – 17 at Orange County’s Blackmarket Bakeries.
