Ada Lovelace Day Cookie
Ada Lovelace is considered to be the first computer programmer and lived during the 19th century! Here is a cookie I made in honor of Ada Lovelace & Ada Lovelace Day (2nd Tuesday in October)!
"Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.
Founded in 2009 by Suw Charman-Anderson, it is now held every year on the second Tuesday of October. It usually features the flagship Ada Lovelace Day Live! ‘science cabaret’ in London, UK, at which women in STEM give short talks about their work or research in an informal, theatre-like setting."
More on Ada Lovelace
"English mathematician Ada Lovelace, the daughter of poet Lord Byron, has been called "the first computer programmer" for writing an algorithm for a computing machine in the mid-1800s.
Who Was Ada Lovelace?
The daughter of famed poet Lord Byron, Augusta Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace — better known as "Ada Lovelace" — showed her gift for mathematics at an early age. She translated an article on an invention by Charles Babbage, and added her own comments. Because she introduced many computer concepts, Lovelace is considered the first computer programmer."
What I used:
- Easy Sugar Cookie & Non-Royal Icing Icing (that I wrote about before)
- Red Gel Icing
- Black Edible Marker
To honor Ada Lovelace -- the first computer programmer -- I put binary code behind her name. Haha! :)
Tip: Edible marker works on this Non-Royal Icing Icing and also works on Royal Icing (which I have seen work on TV and in videos, but I haven't learned how to make royal icing myself yet. Haha. :) ) So you could use edible markers to write binary code or anything you like. :)
Give it a try! We are good at this!
