Well although the bar has been set so high that I couldn't even get close - I decided to make some bees I had in mind -- I draw this cartoon bee for Sunday school and thought he'd make a cute cookie -- well, it is not so easy to draw with icing I've learned -- they are still cute just amateurish -- try, try again I guess...

No Fails and Helen's icing....

Here's my first entry for August. I used the rich rolled sugar cookie recipe from Joy of Cooking, black and red MMF (still not a big fan) and royal icing (also form JOC) for piping and to adhere the sugar detail on the heads.

I'm OK with them. I think a comercially-made fondant would have done a better job. Also, I can't seem to get my camera to shoot the true colors, so they are a bit washed out.

Anyway...I had fun making them and I am now endeavoring to make some butteflies. See you all soon! icon_smile.gif

I love the bees!
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

lcottington--your bees are adorable. It takes a lot of time and practice to get the hang of decorating cookies with icing. You have such a small surface and the icing doesn't always go where you want it to go. Give it time; it will come.

Very nice work eromero! They are almost the same color scheme as the butterflies I just made!

Rich rolled sugar cookie from JOC, royal icing "bodies" and piping (also from JOC) and marbelized fondant for the wings.

babynewyear,

I find using fondant (even the MMF) is much easier on cookies than on a cake. You have a much smaller surface to cover, it's basically flat and all I do is roll out the fondant and cut it with the same cookie cutter. Sometimes I trim a piece of fondant here and there for effect (as I did with the ladybugs), but it's relatively simple.

Now, covering a cake with fondant...that always scares me! icon_surprised.gif

I'm loving these bugs!! So cute!

lcottington - I'm right with you on drawing vs. decorating! I get an image in my head of how I want the cookie to look and it just doesn't seem to happen so easy! icon_lol.gif

Here goes ... first time with the 'Cookie Club'. Both bees and butterflies are sugar cookies with Antonia74's royal icing. Designs inspired by ourcookie.com

Enjoy!!!!
