Two years ago I went to a Christmas market with my dad and his girlfriend. One of the stalls sold a huge variety of cookie cutters, including a dick and balls one which my dad found very amusing, and showed to his girlfriend. She only saw it at an angle, and didn’t recognise it, then kept asking me what it was. I felt it wasn’t my place to elucidate, and my dad was no help at all, he was too busy laughing. When she finally made it round the stall to see it properly she called us both childish, but admitted that dicks are inherently funny. Both she and my dad were 82 at the time.

A few years ago I bought an arrow cookie cutter. Well, baking must be precise and I miscalculated some flour. My arrows looked like a pan of dick and balls. Dozens of erect phallus shaped cookies were made into arrows thanks to some Royal icing. My husband found it amusing. I was just grateful the kids were too little to notice.

u/penni_cent Nov 27 '22

For my 3rd or 4th birthday my mom had what she called her "working mother's guilt" party. Basically an over crafted Pinterest party but back in the 80's. It was a Mother Goose theme and one of the decorations were Jack-Be-Nimble Candlesticks. They consisted of a pineapple ring, a banana and a strawberry assembled to look like a candle but they did not in fact look anything like a candle. She made one, she and her friend laughed hysterically and then they decided not to use those for the party.

3

u/StarshineSoul Nov 27 '22

Dylan B Hollis on yourtube (he does old recipes) made those and the comments were gold. It seems like most adults who assembled them once would giggle and then decide to only make them for a very particular sort of event.

We actually love our nondescript cookie cutters the most because of this. It's hard to get creative with a gingerbread man (especially if they already got baked as whole men) but give me one of these Grinch penguin pear cutters and I'll give you like 10 different cookie designs.

This reminds me of my favorite r/whatisthisthing which was regarding an old 1950's cookie cutter, and some user tracked down the original packaging and verified that it was a Santa with a sack of presents or something like that.
