AWESOME cookies, KHalstead! And now I get to be envious of a 6-yr-old's talent! Maybe you've got yourself another Martha Stewart!

Your cookies are very cool -- the tulips almost look like brush embroidery. Is that sanding sugar in the center of the yellow flower? The tiny seed packets are sweet. (How the heck do you decorate a cookie that is one inch square?!?!? -- I guess a SIX-year-old's fingers are small enough to do that, but mine sure aren't! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif




The center of the yellow flower is just "warm brown" americolor gel stippled on with a paintbrush!


she really is a "budding" artist (you guys are so punny (get it?) LOL)

She really CAN draw though........she started out drawing cats and stuff when she was 2, by 4 she was enamored with me drawing cakes in my spare time and now at 6 she literally draws 3-dimensional cakes and animals........nobody has ever "taught" her how to draw though, she just loves to draw and looks at objects and copies them!

she designs her own birthday cakes too and submits the sketch to ME, instead of me submitting a sketch to HER! lol

id there a prize for the pokiest poster, lol?
not the best photo, but if i take the time to get a better photo, it will be may....

i am kinda burned out on light springy colors, so please forgive the not-so-springy colors icon_smile.gif. tried sponging on the gold color which gave a really neat marbled effect but you can't see it very well in the photos. wanted a script background but my americolor pens were just not fine enough and kinda ruined the effect. these are supposed to be poppies but they look like roses....

Diane, it's no wonder they want your cookies for the magazine! These are INCREDIBLE! They look like poppies to me, I think the colors are gorgeous, and the photography is beautiful. Onlyin my dreams could I create such wonderful cookies, and then get a decent photo of them.

those are gorgeous, drakegore!

drakegore, Lovely.
I'm thinking they look like roses to you because of the placement of the green right under the flower petals. Most poppies don't have much green there.

Those cookies are absolutely breathtaking, drakegore! icon_eek.gif

They are such works of art! I love the idea of the script in the background... and I saw them as poppies rather than roses.
