Cookie Club??? - Page 3

post #31 of 102
I'd like to be part of this group too! I won't be able to contribute the first month or two as I've been feeling poorly this past month - will be having major surgery next week. I love baking cookies as much as my family loves eating them - though I seldom get to the decorating stage.

This is a great Idea. I'm in. I found a good website for cookie cutters. Its www.cookiecutter.com for those of you who don't have easy access to stores that sell good ones. I ordered some on Tuesday and they arrived on Friday. I can't wait to hear the months theme! I have 1/2 a batch of the No Fail Sugar Cookie dough in my fridge, i guess i'll save it for the theme!

I am a newbie here but this sounds like a lot of fun. I would love to try it!
It would get a lot of new ideas going.

I'm so excited, this is such a fun idea! Count me in! (Although maybe not the first month or 2 because I'm having a baby in 2 weeks!!). Can't wait to see everyone's great work!

2) The cookies should have never been posted before. We should all have to make new ones just for this! That would mean we've all had the same amount of time to create them. thumbs_up.gif



I like this idea!!

Just so I understand, is this going to truly be a contest where there is a winner? If so, other than the first month which cake princess should choose the theme for, how about the winner each month is allowed to pick the next theme? By the way, I think that all pics should be new so that all us newbies will have a fair chance against all you a-gamers!!!!!!!!!!



So, is this a contest? or are we just seeing what ideas everyone can come up with for that theme? How would we vote if this a contest?

I'm in, no matter how this gets set up! I'm just starting cookies and what fun this will be!!!!

I have a suggestion for theme part...

Perhaps we could always choose an upcoming holiday/event. That way we will be sure to get our creative thoughts flowing before the last minute. most people start thinking about buying a month or so in advance. Like April we could do mother's day. Then May weddings or father's day etc. i just thought that way we would also get something practical out of the practice.

I also thought the themes could concentrate on one medium sometimes. one month Fondant, the next month royal, then glace, etc. Also to improve the skill and get the creative ideas rolling in.

I also agree that the pic should be new....

Thanks again

I like the idea of focusing on one type of decorating such as fondant, royal, etc. That way although the cookies will be different, the decorating concepts will be the same if that makes any sense.

It's not going to be a contest. I was thinking more along the lines of having A broad theme and letting everyone go at it. Then we can sit back and marvel at how everyone interprets and depicts the theme in their work.

The thing about focusing on one particular medium is, some people may not be at that skill level as yet where they may feel comfortable. So by allowing people to work with which ever medium they want to it kind of levels the playing field a bit. This way people are not feeling intimidated or left out.

The reason I wanted to know how you guys felt about the pics is because I know some people get upset when people post cake pics they have previously displayed on the site in the contest. So I am trying to avoid any negativity or bad blood with our little project here. So I guess we will go with the new pic rule if that's what the group wants.


I was thinking of possibly having a Spring/April Showers Theme for April

This sounds like such fun! I am in. I have only made two batches of cookies so far, but it was so much fun! A wonderful idea from a wonderful artist!

So is the first theme gonna be Spring and April showers? I am trying to come up with ideas since I read your post. I look forward to hearing from you so I know which direction I am going in. Thanks for coming up with this I look forward to seeing what everyone does with whatever the themes may be.

Well tt's on the table now. Hopefully by Tuesday everyone would have seen this and put in their 2 cents.

If the majority does not object to the idea then the Theme will be Spring/April Showers.

Then we can all get started baking and doing what ever else we need to do for this month.
