Ian is an illustrator at Zingerman's.
I love designing and illustrating packaging, it’s one of my favorite creative endeavors, so I had a lot of fun creating our newest cartooned gift box, which we started using for our gifts in October 2021. I divided the box into four different scenes containing characters and food that are sectioned off by an illustrated bow and ribbon. The four themes are winter, night time, forest and prehistoric. The dinosaurs in particular were fun to draw, especially the cheeseosaurus.
We’re now using this box for over 40 different gifts, holding everything from cheese to chocolate to a smattering of snacks. I’m partial to this collection of Jewish pastries and confections. We stuff this gift box with our Chocolate and Raisin Babka, a coconut macaroon-topped Black & White Brownie, Apricot Rugelach cookies, and Kosher Celtic Sea Salt Caramels.
There's been a small change we want to let you know about.
The recipe for (Better than) Bubbe's Sweet Treats Gift Box has changed:
We temporarily ran out of
Apricot Rugelach, Celtic Sea Salt Caramels
so we've included
Maple Halva, Vanilla Butter Caramels.
