April Cookie Club

post #1 of 207
Thread Starter 
Hello cookie makers! Thanks for your patience!!

The April theme is Royalty.

Remember, anyone can participate! Here are the established cookie club guidelines, with some additional clarifications based on questions that have been posed lately:



* You can use any medium to decorate your cookies - fondant, royal icing, butter cream etc. The only stipulation is it has to be a medium used in cookie or cake decorating. Please let us know which medium you used to decorate your cookies and any techniques that you used, the type of cookie, etc..

* The group decided that all pictures must be new pictures (and new cookies). If you have a previous group of cookies already in your album (or in the forum) even if it depicts the theme please no not use it for this cookie club theme. The idea of the monthly theme is to get our creative juices/new ideas flowing and produce something new.

* Please do not post monthly theme cookies to your personal album or the cookie Gallery until after the monthly theme has expired (the end of the month). Even though there has been some discussion about this, and we tried eliminating this guideline for a couple of months, if we post to the gallery right away, it seems to lessen the flow of traffic to this thread. Therefore, we will return to each picture being new and not previously/currently uploaded to the Galleries.

* Please post pictures in this thread. Do not create a separate thread for your pictures). Please post a maximum of 3 pictures per person in this thread for the monthly theme. You may however use graphics programs to create a collage of different pictures/angles that count as one photo post. When the month is over, please feel free to post as many pictures as you want to the galleries.

* The purpose of choosing a monthly theme is to have a central theme for everyone participating to follow in order to allow us an opportunity to be creative, try new things, and learn from each other. Please try to follow the monthly theme. Everyone who wishes to has an opportunity to suggest a theme in the monthly suggestion thread, and all themes suggested are considered and commented on by interested members of the community. The theme is chosen at the beginning of each month by Cake_Princess or me (the theme is chosen based on what seems to have the most support for that particular month from the group in the suggestions thread and any PMs Cake_Princess or I receive, not necessarily by an actual vote count) and the new theme is posted near the beginning of the month. If your suggestion wasnt chosen in one particular month, please feel free to suggest it again in the future!

* Although we should connect to the theme, sometimes the connection isnt obvious to other people. In your post please let us know why you chose the design you did if the reason is not obvious. (For Example if the theme was Music and you made ghost cookies then let us know the connection. Ghost = Phantom and Phantom of the opera relates to music).


Happy Baking, everyone! I cant wait to see the cookies!!!!

ok here goes lol Since easter began with the Saxons who celebrated the return of spring with an uproarious festival commemorating their Goddess of offspring Eastre I figured that easter cookies would be appropriate as in my mind if you are a Goddess then you must be royalty lol

Thank you and I forgot to mention that they are sugar cookies with RI lol I made the bouquet for my Mom's bingo night at her retirement home as a door prize and the croses are for some of the other ladies. I usually donate a bouquet to them for each holiday in the year. Most of them dont do much baking anymore including my mom so when I get the chance I like to give them what I bake. Keeps me from getting fatter lol

Cross cookies would be fitting of Royalty, because they depict or remind us that Christ rose from the cross and He is the Son of God, who is the King of King's, so I would say He is royalty. =0)

I bought the cross cutter at a cake store a little ways from my house. I had wanted one that was a little less square you know kind of sculpted on the corners but this was all I could find.
