Theme of the Month!

post #1 of 196
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody, I had a fun idea that I kicked around with a few of my pals, and we decided we want to share with you, and hope you'll enjoy it, too! It's called "Theme of the month". What I'm doing is proposing that every month we all come to an agreement on a theme, and then submit photos of your creations that tie in to that theme. Here's the best part... you can use ANY medium to create your entry! You can do cake, candy, cookies, any EDIBLE medium!

Here's how it works... I will start this month's theme with one that we've already chosen... "Under the Sea". You make ANY type of edible creation that ties in to that theme, and either post the pic here, or simply post a link to a photo in your gallery. Either way is fine. We do want you to make new entries though... not just go through your album and pick out stuff you've already done.

About halfway through the month I will ask for suggestions, then make a poll with the top 5 or so ideas. We will all vote for what we want as the theme, and the winner will be announced at the end of the month, then we'll start it all over again! This will be SO fun!

If anyone has ideas, suggestions, questions, etc. let me know... this will be a living, breathing entity that we can mold and change as we go. Also, there are no limits to the number of entries... if you make 30 cakes and 10 cookies, we want to see them all! But we'd hope you'd just post links instead of photos, or it would get waaay out of hand! Hahaha!

Important notice: ANYONE can submit their creations, but there are no 'prizes'. This is just a way to share our creativity. I'd love to give out prizes, but who can afford that? hahaha! Ok... I'll give ya a back rub! Haha! But you have to drive to my house to claim it! icon_wink.gif

So let's hear it guys... what do you say? Who wants to post their pic first?

What a wonderful idea! icon_lol.gif I have a question -- can we post the pix right here in the forum (I ask because occasionally the links get wiggy-woggy and come up with the wrong photos! icon_confused.gif) I know just the cake I'm going to post too!! icon_biggrin.gif

This sounds fun! Maybe the moderators could make it like a sticky so it stays at the top? Or maybe there's another way so everyone will see it and be able to participate!

Hey Bob... you can either post the pic, or a link, it's totally up to you! However you want to do it!!

A sticky? That would be cool! I wonder if they'd be up for it??

This is a great idea! I always watch the cookie of the month thread, but don't do many cookies!

I'm going to cheat this month because my next cake is going to be one to use up left-over colored icing, most of what I have right now is pink, so probably not anything under the sea from that! LOL

Anyway, I did this a few months back but didn't post it - the picture is so bad I can't even color-adjust it without spending too much time, but anyway, here it is ... I had to combine two birthdays in one cake: one person loves hockey, the other snorkeling and the ocean.

Hockey skates and stick are royal icing. Rink is rolled buttercream. Rest is regular buttercream.

This is a great idea. It's something that they've been doing in the "cookie" forum. We pick a theme, then we post pics of cookies that go with the theme. Although, there's no winners, we all win in seeing new creations and gathering ideas. It's fabulous! I can't remember well but i don't think they'll make it a sticky, can't remember the reason. on search for the original post, be back later.

These are ALL awesome and I am SO GLAD you guys are into it! I know they have the cookie club, and I submit to that too, but I was hoping to make this cover more types of mediums... some people just DO NOT do cookies, but would really like to participate in this type of forum. SO... having said that, I am pleased as punch to see all these pix!! Keep 'em coming! And, as far as how late you can post... if we do it monthly, I would have to assume the end of the month would be the cut off, but I am not going to whine if someone posts after that!!! I don't really care! It's fun, regardless of when you do it!! I'm not trying to impose many rules, it's just easier that way! icon_wink.gif (Besides... who died and made ME cake mistress? I'm the CHOCOLATE mistress!! hahahaha!!!)

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who wont anymore, & who always will. So don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
