May's Cookie Theme

post #1 of 108
Thread Starter 
Hello cookie makers!

The consensus seems to be FLOWERS for May's Theme


Just to refresh your memory, here are the "guidelines" for the cookie club posts (from Cake_Princess' original post):

* 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.

* 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.

* You can 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!!

* Please 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 aleveryones cookies!!!!

I know I need ALOT more practice, especially on outlining. These are no fail sugar with Alice's cookie icing. I only made 1/2 batch so I could see if I was going to be able to do this and I ran out of icing, so the embroidery is in regular buttercream. There have been questions about this icing getting hard enough. I found it got hard enough to stack, but not to manhandle. Thanks for looking.

Here are my cookies for May, I made them for a March of Dimes silent auction at a local racehorse magazine here in town. So everyone cross your fingers for high bids and orders!!! There is only one flower in my bunch but it is the most important flower to us Kentucky'ins on the first Saturday in May!!!

I know this is a touchy subject so I am going to ask opinions first... My son's last day of pre-school was today so I made the teacher a cookie bouquet of 12 red roses. I confess I am a better copier than designer so I tried my best to copy the beautiful ones from cookiesbydesign.com. My question is - is it proper to acknowledge the site upfront and post my pic to this thread or should I keep them to myself since it is a copy and not origional???

You know on further thought I think I will not post them. Actually, I was only thinking of it from you guys perspective, forgot to think what cookiesbydesign.com might think. OOPS! Well let me say it is a GREAT site with beautiful cookie bouquets. If you haven't checked them out I recommend it. Sorry for the indecision.

Post them, NEWTODECORATING .

We are all learning how to master ( icon_confused.gif ) cookie decorating by trying new techniques etc. Most of us learn by example. Besides, you're not selling the cookies, right? Post them.....post them....post them..... (is it working?) icon_lol.gif
