    Wonder if bacon cookies will be as in demand this coming year. I'd also entertain the idea of doing straight-up chocolate-covered candied bacon. NOM.

    I had people straight up throwing money at me at East for the chocolate covered bacon.

    So yes, I was actually going to try and make some myself.

    I am sure chocolate covered bacon would be a raging success! I don't know how bacon cookies would work, but lots of people will try anything once.

    I made candied bacon chocolate chip cookies last year, and that was the general reaction: not-sure-if-want-ehh-why-not? They usually followed up with, "can I have another cookie just in case?" ;)

    Hi all. Just giving a little update.
    The CB admins were all super busy over the holidays so apps got put on hold. I'be been making some headway in that department over the last couple days though. So if you applied and are still waiting for a response, that's probably why. Also, there is a lot of spam in there so you got deny and feel it was in error, please pm me as there's a chance I checked an incorrect box.

    New poster here, this PAX will be my first ever. I've never heard of this but it sounds fantastic! I'm thinking since this will be my first one, I should just donate and perhaps participate next year? Looking forward to it!

    PAX East 2014. Let's go.

    I mostly tweet about food

    Yes, they are not frosted in the picture. Yes, they will be coated with tons of colored frosting goodness come the con. Yes, there will be red, green and blue koopa shells. These are just my new cookies cutters. There will be more Mario goodness (and Sonic and Link).

    Hey guys! PAX East 2013 is now just right around the corner. Like last year we are going to collect information from bakers and distributors who plan to help out ahead of time so we can communicate information with you in a timely manner.

    If you will be involved with the brigade at PAX East 2013, please fill out this survey: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFh4di16VzR5bUtjVloyV1ZOS2JuZGc6MA#gid=0


    If you're not already registered on the Cookie Brigade website please do so ASAP and join our PAX East 2013 group.

    I just got in as an enforcer....can I pass out cookies while enforcing? As long as I'm placed in the proper areas to do so?

    You'd also need to reverse this question in the other direction as it is the sort of thing that will be determined by those In Charge of Enforcing, though I think the answer may be no. I cannot 100% confirm this, I just am almost sure it is. Basically, you're going to be very busy with [E] things and will likely not have time for CB things at the same time. Also, if you're CBing while wearing an [E] shirt then CB becomes a Penny Arcade 100% authorized and supported and related institution instead of just a tertiarily accepted and semi-encouraged, "thanks for all your awesome work, guys, you're awesome" sort of thing. We're not affiliated with PA. CBing while wearing an [E] shirt may produce the image that CB IS associated with PA. You can check if you like, but I'm semi-certain this will be the line of thinking that Enforcing has.

    I shall be baking Rice Krispie Treats of Infinite Improbability again, topped with all manner of obscenity. Photos will be posted closer to PAX.

    I've been super busy this year and am waaaaay out of the loop. Any suggestions for game-themed cookies? The Combustible Lemons are kinda played out, so suggestions for a new cookie are welcome!

    Thanks for the advice!! I was leaning towards that type of answer. I just want to help as much as possible!! You bet that I'll be at least bringing cookies, and if I have time after my E duties I'll try handing out some! There is so much to do and so little time!

    What's this? ThinkGeek and the Cookie Brigade together?
    Yes! ThinkGeek has been kind enough to partner with the Cookie Brigade so we can bring you guys more goodies. Brigadiers, go check the announcements section of our forums for more info. Non-brigadiers, sit back and wait for me to leak tidbits of awesome :)
