September Cookie Club? - Page 2

post #16 of 37
I would be honored, thrilled, and touched that you would want to replicate my designs! I'm only able to touch base on CC on a limited basis, but this would certainly encourage me to head to the library to get on-line! CC withdrawal is a terrible thing....

As a newbie to CC, I have no idea what a cookie club is.
Can someone explain? Thanks in advance. icon_smile.gif

A theme is picked and we all make cookies to meet that theme and post a picture of them in this thread.

This month we are duplicating a cookie designed by GeminiRJ (click on her photos above to see) or creating a cookie inspired by one of Gemini's cookies.

They look great! Why do you think they are "sad".

Funny, I just did a few days ago cookies for a very fun lady, and I tried "The Beach Babe". I am not thrilled with the result, maybe next time I should not be lazy, and should glaze the body icon_lol.gif And than I could probably use color pen to do outline instead of RI. SO DON"T LAUGH. icon_redface.gif

wow...gone for a little while and what happens.....nothing. this may have been a bad month to do a tribute, what with everyone being so crazy busy. kids going back to school and all the sports have really sucked up a ton of time. i'm making my cookies tonight!

Ok I'm up for this challenge...might be a bit late in the game but I'm in! I have to admit, Gemini's stuff is absolutely inspiring!!! A perfect example of how I would like my cookies to eventually look!

Gemini - I have no idea if you'll answer this or if it's a trade secret or not, but do you pipe the black outlines before filling in with the flooding? And do you use RI for all of your designs? I am absolutely giddy over your cookies!!! icon_redface.gif

I can only read a portion of the posts, as the right side is cut off, so I'll give my best answer to what I think you want to know. All my cookies are iced with a slight modification to Toba's Glace (I make the icing in smaller amounts, and add brite white food color when I mix it up). I outline each area with icing, then immediately flood with more of the same icing in a zig-zag pattern. I smooth the icing out over the entire area, using a tapered off-set spatula. This really helps eliminate any air bubbles! Once all the icing has set, I do the final outline in black using thickened glace and a #1s tip.

Kneadacookie was my inspiration for wanting to decorate cookies. Her ability to create awesome cookies using glace icing blew me away. I also loved seeing Yankeegal's cookies, and used her as a role model along with Kneadacookie. The were my first cookie heroes. And now there are so many more fantastic decorators on this site to get inspired by!

Okay I actually had a lot of cookies to make this month and wasn't able to participate. This is my first year doing Halloween cookies so I tried Gemini's owl design on this owl. I only made 1 and it didn't go as well as planned. But I wanted to share:[/img]

Okay first time trying to add image.... 2nd try.
