She shellacked the cookie

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
My sister just told me that the 3D nurse cookies I made over a month ago haven't quite gone away. One of her co-workers still has hers sitting on her desk, and another shellacked (sp?) the cookie and placed it in her display cabinet. Wouldn't it have been better to enjoy eating the cookie and then just have me make a new one sometime? Anybody else have people do this to their cookies? It's a cookie...it isn't supposed to last forever!

My FIL kept a cookie bouquet that I made for him for Easter. It was in a basket, and he put it on his hearth, and when we were there the next year, it was still sitting right there in the same place. He and my husband thought it was a compliment that he was keeping it forever, but I didn't.

On the bright side, a year later it hadn't faded at all.

i was thinking... you may as well just make cookies out of clay if people are going to make shelf decorations out of them.

LOL! This has happened to me, too! I made some Flower cookies on sticks that I "planted" in small flower pots for my co-workers one year for Easter. About half of the people saved their cookies in the pots for display. My boss ate his and asked if another would grow back in its place! icon_smile.gif

Last year at Christmas, my next door neighbor asked me to make some cupcakes to match her Christmas ornaments on one of her trees during the Tour of Homes. Would you believe that in February, she still had those silly cupcakes on display next to her tree...she didn't want to throw them away because they had matched so perfectly...By the time I saw them in February, I was wishing that she wasn't dropping my name everytime she showed them off to a guest! They were pretty sad looking...

People are so funny! icon_smile.gif

I have a friend's dad that still has a Santa cookie I made them. He decided it was too pretty and wouldn't let anyone eat it. I told him I can make more. I gave them cookies at Valentines but told him he had to eat them or no more cookies. icon_smile.gif At least people are appreciating the work that went into it but don't understand we want them to enjoy what we have made by eating it.

For my nephew's first birthday, I made him a circus cake (it was on the front of the 1990 or 1991 Wilton book I believe) and made the circus cookies to go on top. My mother STILL has one of those cookies. You see, this is weird because my nephew just turned 18 about 3 weeks ago. THAT COOKIE IS 17 YEARS OLD!! icon_lol.gificon_eek.gif My mom just can't bear to get rid of it. About 7 or 8 years ago, my parents remodelled their kitchen and the cookie wasn't in it's usual place so my nephew asked about it. That cookie will never go away. It is probably petrified by now. icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I didn't shallack it, but I still have a cookie from my sister's wedding last July. icon_smile.gif I have some leftovers from other cookie designs too. They are good displays or samples when people just don't understand what a cookie favor is. I can just whip it out. LOL! Not to eat, of course.

I think that's awesome. It must've been a work of art!! icon_smile.gif My husband was going to shellack(?) my Van Gogh 'series', lol, but when I went to show my friend, her cat started eating it. Oh well......

I agree that it is the ultimate compliment ~ good for you! icon_smile.gif
