Ngarza07 - wow! great job! those boquets are beautiful - I'm sur eyou'll get lots of orders!

TJSCakes - pretty flowers. I like the color combinations you chose.

Babynewyear - don't worry, you're not alone... I do theme dinners too (more than once a month). Maybe it's the former teacher in me....

Bonniecakes,

I'm hoping I don't get too many orders. I've created a spreadsheet with a max number I'll accept. At Christmas I baked almost everynight for two weeks and do not want to repeat that performance. It's still just a fun stress reliever outlet for me when I get home from my 'real' job. And I get to buy more cookie cutters and supplies without feeling like I'm spending my real money on my hobby.

bonniebakes Thats great. Glad to know I'm not the only one. I started it to teach manners and it ended up a great way to try different types of food (that might be bad) icon_rolleyes.gif

Really cute and such unique cutters NEWTODECORATING. You have some great detail going on here.

We're still waiting for Cake_Princess to do her cookies with a hand tied behind her back. Could be what's taking her so long.

I told you I was gonna bake last weekend then I pushed it back to this week. This week rolls around and I am sick. I have a slight cold but the other night I had a bad headache and ruptured a blood vessel in my nose. I blew my nose (not hard at all) and the tissue was filled with blood.

Really I don't think anyone wants cookies laced with snot, blood and cold germs. I am feeling much better now so this weekend I will do my baking... It will still be April. Keep your knickers on!!!!

I finally tried making the cutter cookies for the first time. I used the no fail recipe for the dough and loved how they came out. I also realized that I have a lot of practicing to do before I get good at decorating them. I cannot get them to post on here so I will add them to my photos if I can figure out how to do that.

The pictures uploaded with no problem into the cookie gallery. Would someone please tell me how you attach a picture to the forums? I hope that you can see my pics and tell me what I did wrong and need to work on.

newtodecorating - WOW! thowse are so cute! I love the ducks! I think you should be one of the ones who has to decorate with one hand tied behind your back!

craftst3 - how did you like the cookie dough? what kind of icing did you use? Did you spread it on or pipe it on?
edited to add: To attach a photo in a post, just click on the "add an attachment" button (underneath of the space where you write the actual post text, below the burgandy-ish colored bar). Then, you'll be asked to pick the file name to be attached. When you submit the post, it should be included with it.

craftst3, I wouldn't say you did anything wrong, but it looks like maybe you're using an icing that's not well suited to doing cookies.

There's a fabulous tutorial on this site by Antonia74 called "how to bake and decorate cookies" that has a lot of information in it. You can find it on the home page or under the Articles tab.

Many of us use this method and icing recipe to get a smoothly iced cookie.

There are other methods as well, and other icing recipes. I would recommend looking through that tutorial as well as some of the other threads in the cookie forum here for details on how other people are doing the cookies, and then post if you have more questions!

hth!
Laura.

When you add an attachment the file size is not supposed to be any larger than 2 MB or the pixel dimensions are not supposed to be greater than 800 x 800. I'm not sure what programs you use, but I have Macromedia Fireworks and it allows me to adjust the pixel size. HTH

Well, here is what I came up for the April theme.
They are the No Fail cookies with Antonia's icing.
Ya gotta use your imagination for the baby birds in the nest, I guess.
My DH couldnt figure out what it was supposed to be until I told him.
Oh well, they were fun to do and he enjoys eating them!
Hopefully they will get better as the year progresses.

Those are adorable grammacookie!
I love the little nest and baby birds. I'm going to make a note of that for my kid's class! Great work! ( I like the music notes above the adult bird too!)
