Cookies just get no respect!

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
I hope I'm not going out on a limb posting this, and I hope I don't rile the powers that be. But I noticed there's another CC cake decorating contest going on. I so-o-o wanted to see a cookie decorating contest! I wanted it bad enough that I sent an email, offering to put up $100 in prize money. My offer was very graciously declined, but it was still declined. It just makes you think that, as the subject line stated, cookies get no respect! When was the last time you saw a cookie decorating challenge on Food Network? I'd certainly watch if they ever did one. We have a plethora of fantastic cookie decorators on this site alone, Food Network wouldn't know who to pick! Sorry for my rant. This has just been eating at me.

I'd sure like to see one also....Cookies deserve respect...that is why I charge $5.00 each for them on my site!! If I am gonna put my heart and soul and time into them..I'm gonna get paid fairly for them!!

could we start cookie "throw downs" again? I know it's not an official CC contest, but it was fun to see the creations....

Maybe if enough of us send them emails requesting this. But they just don't seem to be very receptive to cookie ideas. I could be a bit too sensitive on the subject, though!

I found CC when my interest in cakes started. Looking through the site I was amazed at all the beautiful cookies I saw. I have just started to try cookies (& cakes too!) and they are so much fun. I LOVE COOKIES!!! Thank you to all you cookie pros for sharing your recipes, knowledge, and encouragement. I would love to see more cookie everything on Cake Central. icon_biggrin.gif

Kuddos to all of you! I wish I could make cookies, let alone decorate...for some reason that is just one medium that I'm not good at. I agree it would be interesting to see more of it, and contests etc.

Amen to that!! The cookies on this site are amazing! I feel like they deserve a little "horn-tooting" of their own!! I would love to see more!

I started out doing cakes, too. And while I still like doing cakes, I LOVE doing cookies!

I'm totally with everyone on the "more cookies" requests as I love decorating them and seeing other decorators' cookies, too, but since this is CAKE Central not sure how much more cookie stuff they'll tolerate. Maybe the mods would be interested in starting a COOKIE Central as well???? All cookies all the time!!!!!
