She asks, with her heart in her throat, hoping to get the right answer.....

Ok, nobody's willing?

What if I said the whole birthday party was based around a guy who's thesis was done on the space suit?

LOL.. my initial thought was some type of cell... showing the nucleus, etc.

I was thinking space and planets.....but also for some reason I saw "fertility" things. If the party is space-themed, then I think your cookies will fit right in. Sitting on a table otherwise, I might picture a few different things. Either way, they are great! Is it an edible image or royal icing?

The lady contracted me for a party for her husbands 35th birthday. She wanted a "moonscape" cake with an astronaut and 24 cookies, round ones decorated like moons with "craters". (her husband did his graduate thesis on the space suit. I might have mentioned that before... icon_redface.gif )

They are fondant with royal icing details. I hope that sitting around the moon cake they will look like moons instead of fertility cells.....

Oh, and mom came by and said my astronaut was too big for my cake, but I don't have time to do it all over. Plus, if I was doing it to scale the astronaut would have been miniscule.

I think my confidence level on this job is plummeting.....I really hope she's happy or I'm in deep doodoo with the word of mouth thing.

I made a few extra and am throwing them in ( just 4 or so, not much) and they ended up being about 1/2" bigger in diameter then they were supposed to be. They are my first order with cookies, I've only done cakes before. I hope she likes them.

No, no, no!! You did great!!! If the cookies were sitting with the cake we would have been able to tell right away what they were. I definitely see moon craters now, thought you said they were supposed to be outer space.

Sorry, my bad. I did sorta imply that. Thanks for your input. I admit to having a real bad headache right now and I didn't sleep last night, so sorry for the dump about my low confidence.... icon_redface.gif

You know how you get when you're stressed and tired. I really can take critiques, I had no problem hearing that they inspired "fertility cell" looks. I hope you don't think I was pouting after I asked for it! (But I admit to being glad they will look like moons if sitting next to my "oversized" astronaut!)

I think I've earned a nap. Gotta make the cake tomorrow!

can i just add one thing?!?!? you said they were covered in fondant? i've never worked in fondant, but... the one thing that really stuck out to me(i'm very OCD) was that the fondant was all different sizes on the cookies...sorry, i'm just huge on consistency. just my 2 cents

I don't think you have a thing to worry about. People could interpret them in many different ways, but in the context of the party AND next to the moon cake, they will be perfect and they'll love them. Great job!!
Mom, did you make any extras?!

Just so you know, the very first thing I thought was space....of course, I have 2 little boys too. I think they're perfect, congrats on the cookie order.

I was thinking somewhere along the lines of something that had to do with outerspace. Or some kind of cheese but cheese isn't dark like that.lol. Don't worry, they will look great when everything is put together. Good luck.

I think they will look great next to a space cake. If the whole party is space themed, everyone will know that they are moon cookies.

Me too! The first thing I thought of was they look like the moon surface, but I thought I was going to be wrong as usual. Yea me!

I too thought space was thinnking more parts to space shuttle but can see it now what they are and they will look fab next to your cake.

Remember to post the finished cake. We would all like to see. Your doing great and don't worry about your man. He will be fine.

Good Luck.
