What do these look like? - Page 2

I'm late jumping in here, but I thought of space/moon/planets right away when I saw these. They are very galactic! I think they'll be a perfect compliment to your cake. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks everyone.

I hate that they are all different sizes, too. I cut the cookies from the same exact cutter I used on the fondant. When the first batch came out so much smaller than the cookies, I rolled the shapes out a little so they'd fit better. I tried to find a cutter in my big collection that would get me the same size as the cookies, but no dice. (and I have like 8 different size circles!!) I tried to make them all round without worrying too much about perfection ( I rather thought a small bit of irregularity in the craters and such might be good since nothing in nature is perfect)

But next time I gotta figure out how to get the fondant closer to the right size. I wanted to use this fondant since it's white chocolate flavored and it's the same stuff going on the cake. Otherwise I might have just flooded them with RI. Which I probably should have done, anyway.

As you do more and more cookies your confidence and skills will increase.

And for the first time you did good and giving a client a few extra cookies a smooth move on your part.

the only thing to do diff next time is to cover the whole cookie with the fondant and add the details on top so you don't see bare cookie in the craters, lol.

Also, you can cut the fondant with the same cookie cutter that you cut the cookie with.

I am looking foward to seeing your cookies around the cake.

Believe me when I tell you that they will look totally believable, because the "EYE" will fill in the details, lol

Oh, and a thought, do you have a little lustre dust? Pearl or Silvery color? that would bring the cookies to another level!

Good Job, there should be no problem with your confidence ( insert a thumbs up!)

I thought of that after I cut the holes. I tried filling in with some RI but it looked really stupid. I originally thought of cutting out the holes so they would have some dimension. But they didn't quite turn out like I envisioned. I do have pearl and silver and "moonstone" silver luster dust. What about airbrushing the whole cookie so it also coats the bare cookie craters??? (without covering the bare borders)

I think they look fine...you learned a lot for next time, huh? I know you said you used the same cutter to cut the fondant as the cookies, so maybe finding a cookie that doesn't spread as much while baking will do the trick. You did a fine job for your first time!

I'm late in posting too, but I definitely got the moon/space theme when I first saw your cookies. They look great! You should be very proud of your work.

Nah, just a little moon dust here and there would make the cookie pop enough.

what you could've done for next time was to make little fondant circles or bumps ( or something yummers like marzipan if allowed) and cover with the fondant and then with your finger press in the hole.

so the whole cookie is covered, but you did a great job! and like I said, they REALLY do NOT need anything else.

these ideas are for next time or to make the cookies a little different for another customer.

I would love to see them with the cake, whenever you post them.

Well, off to make my beach theme cake for tomorrow! lol

I wish I had thought of that. Good luck on the beach cake!

Thanks to all who responded, I do appreciate it!! Working on getting the cake baked and crumb coated. There will definitely be a pic posted when I'm done.

I feel bad!!! I think next to your moon cake, absolutely NO DOUBT they are space related... Once you said a space theme... the galaxy popped right up. I can't wait to see the whole thing put together-- it'll be great!!!

Don't feel bad, pikle....you see what you see. And I totally asked for it.

You will forgive me for the constant grubbing for advice and reinforcement on this order, I hope. I haven't had a paying order in months, and I really want to make a good showing. Kinda sucks that once you finally realize the dream of paying off your house so you can quit your day job and concentrate on your cake business, the cake business dies a horrible death! I consider this job "cake business CPR".

Geez, it's nerve wracking...why do we do this again???

Here it is, the completed project!

I've already gotten an email from the client and she loved the cake. She said her DH was impressed with the "accurate detail" on the astronaut!!


WHOOHOO!!!
