April's Cookie Theme

post #1 of 139
Thread Starter 
OK gang,
I know how long you have been waiting for this so here it is. Our first official monthly cookie theme.

April's Theme: Spring/April Showers

So remember, the group decided that all pictures must be new pictures (and new cookies). Meaning if you have a previous group of cookies already in your album (or in the forum) even if it depicts the theme you cannot use it. The idea of the monthly theme is to get our creative juices/new ideas flowing.

Use any medium to decorate your cookies. Fondant, royal icing, buttercream etc. The only stipulation is it has to be a medium used in cookie or cake decorating. So no play doh!! icon_biggrin.gif

Post pictures in this thread (Do not create a separate thread for your pics). Maximum of 3 pictures per person. You may however use graphics programs to create ONE collage of different pics/angles.

In your post please let us know which medium you used to decorate your Cookies. Also, if you could 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).

Have fun being creative. Look forward to seeing all your work.

Once again thank you all for showing more interest in this little project than I expected.

And before I forget to mention it, Bonniebakes has offered to help out with our little group. So feel free to ask her any questions as well.

Edit:
I may have forgotten to post this here but it was in the cookie club thread. Please do not post monthly theme cookies to your personal album or cookie Gallery until after the monthly theme has expired. The reason for this is, as a group we all decided each picture must be new and not previously uploaded to the Galleries. Seeing that we have no way of knowing when pictures were uploaded this will help to prevent any squabbles about people using previously uploaded pictures.


I do apologize for overlooking this detail. I forgot to post it here, I guess I just assumed everyone read the original Cookie Club thread.

I know there is a deadline for posting our pictures, but if we are done now, is it a good idea to post it?
And....advice on how to post the picture, I've never done that before!
Thanks.

You can start posting them any time you wish. All pics must be submitted by the end of April.

How to submit pics.
Pics must be no larger than 800pixels x 800 pixels. If they are larger you will need to use a graphics program of choice to resize them.

Scroll down and click on Add attachment. Browse to find the File or Files and add any comments then click on the Add attachment button on the side. You can check uploaded files by clicking on Posted attachments. Remember you can only post up to a maximum of 3 pics per person and ONE of your pics can be a collage.

Okay, so of course, in my mind, these looked much better. icon_lol.gif It's my "spring gardening collection" with garden gloves, a pack of seeds, and hand shovels. icon_confused.gif My husband says the dirt should be more "Georgia red"! The cookies are No Fail, the icing is Toba Garrett's. The shovels are hand-cut from a template and then threaded with ribbon (before letting the icing dry thoroughly) . icon_rolleyes.gif

Wow, I feel like I just finished an exam! lol

Can you hold off posting them in the gallery until this month's theme is over? This way there is no squabbles over people not following the rules that the pics be new and not previously posted. Thank you.
