Need honest opinions about these cookies... please!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
These cookies are for party favors. I am worried they look too 'amateur.' I don't expect them to look pro, but I don't want to embarrass myself either. If they look too 'homemade,' I'll just get some pro ones and bag 'em instead. (These will be individually bagged with ribbon ties.) I need your honest opinion about using these or buying some from a bakery.

The flower cookies are for a 4-year-old's birthday party. Made for free as a gesture of kindness to a friend who's been really nice to my daughter and me this year. She's not hoity-toity at all, but some of her friends might be.

The teapots are for a friend's baby shower. I am a co-host, and favors are my contribution. (These will also have teabag attached.)

Also, thanks to the CC members who provided inspiration for the designs! (Sorry I don't remember names.) Couldn't do it without you guys!

I think they look terrific! I don't think they look at all amateurish, and I love the idea of adding the teabag. That ties the theme all together. Plus, putting them in bags adds to the presentation. You should be very proud to contribute these to both parties.

I think they're adorable and better than you might find in some shops.

They look really good! Not amateurish at all. You got the icing nice and smooth, and the colors and techniques are as good as many different professional sites! Bag them and put the ribbons on them and you will be surprised how many compliments you are going to get! You did a great job! Remember, we are our own worst critics. thumbs_up.gif

They are s nice. The colours are lovely, your lines smooth and your icing as well. I think they look beautiful. And I am sure everyone will like them.

Very nicely done! Give yourself a pat on the back and hand them over with pride.

I wouldn't even hesitate in the least and I am being completely honest! I think you did a great job and love how you dropped color in while your RI was still wet and then went back and added RI detailing once dry. That is not an 'amateur' decorating technique. Your flooding looks nice and smooth and your lines are very nice. Give yourself credit for a job well done! thumbs_up.gif
