Awwwww. I bet she looked adorable! I love them and wear them all the time, too.MystiqueFire, it could've been a bad day, I don't know. But it was the first contact I'd ever had with them. Was asking about mail order and it seemed to annoy them. "Well I guess you could, but we'll have to get the payment first before we send it!!" was the reply I got from them. Duh?? I have to send the money first??? Really?? $40 is a lot for a cutter (albeit a really cute one). ...
The Little Fox Factory makes one. They haven't gotten it up on the website, but I've ordered it and it's cute. Order a "croc shoe" -- $1.50.http://www.thelittlefoxfactory.com/cutterselection.htmlhttp://poppyscookiecutters.com/go/view.php?image=images/croc001.jpgThat's a cute cutter. I tried to order a cookie cutter from Poppy's a while back and got a very curt reply. Completely unimpressed with their customer service and didn't order the cutter. Hope things are better...
Making them thicker is an excellent suggestion. I like my cookies 3/8" at least.You could also use RI to "glue" a cookie stick to the back to reinforce the stem. Use a star tip and pipe a thin zigzag of icing. Gently push a stick onto the back.Or, you can cut a piece of cardboard and then cover it in cake foil. Apply a dot of RI and stick the cookie on so that it doesn't slide. Bag and tie with ribbon.
I'm with you -- I don't like canned frosting. This is just a "store-bought" version of Rolled Buttercream.http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-1603-0-Rolled-Buttercream-Fondant-Alternative.html
Where are my manners??!!2009dreamit, I would like to apologize for not extending a CC welcome. You are new to this site and I jumped in and didn't even note that you were a newcomer. We are actually a very friendly bunch here in our little "cookie corner" of CC. You will find folks will go out of their way to answer questions and offer encouragement. Please don't hold my lack of grace against anyone here -- I'm usually a bit more amiable. I do stand by my...
I think some people have them made at Walmart. Is there a cake supply near you? -- some shops do them.
I've used a candy mold to shape cookies. linedancer gives you excellent directions.You can use a bell cutter for Darth Vader and Storm Troopers, just trim the clapper.http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1166020http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1232091Don't know how many cookies you'll have to make. You can use a template to cut them out. Alana Hodgson has generously shared some...
Exactly. It does have many good points, but I just wanted people to know it's not for beginners or those needing more instruction. It is great for ideas. I appreciate any books on decorating cookies. They are so few and far between. It's a catch-22 -- if you don't buy the books they put out they won't publish any more. So I do want to be supportive, but I'd like to see better products.Loved the way she made those candy corn cookies, too. Really, really want to try...
I use this rack for my cookie sheets once they come out of the oven:http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/stacked-cooling-rackIt's also handy for when I'm finished decorating and the icing is drying.I use a similar set of racks/ grids for the cookies once pulled off the sheets. Found mine at a kitchen/bath store.http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=3E31516B-475A-BAC0-5CDDC1ECFBA9D068&killnav=1
Gee, you'd think you wrote the book. Sadly, I wasn't as "thrilled" with it as you were. I definitely have to agree with you, BWB! Very pretty displays (gorgeous photography), but I think it's inconsistent at best. Sorry, but I don't get the cookie swap year round (and yes I read her story about her first swap) but it still doesn't make any sense. A swap lessons the burden but still gives you a nice variety of cookies for gifts. Why would you have a cookie swap for...
