GeminiRJ - Super cute cookie! That will make a great pillow too!

Endymion - Wow! Now that is thinking outside of the box!! SO cool!

Letsgetcaking - Oh, your fence cookie is just delightful!

CookieD-oh - Love your lemon meringue! If you are still looking for idea, the only think I might think is that the meringue is usually fluffy looking. You have the 'fluff' look happening on the top edge, how would a bit of it look near the crust and perhaps (?) make the squiggly lines a bit more 'fluffy'? Even if you don't change it at all, I think it is superb as is!

letsgetcaking - Love the ladybugs on the fence!

TracyLH - Yeah, it didn't look "fluffy" enough to me either. I will keep working on it!

letsgetcaking -- how cute and springy! Especially love the fence cookie--amazing you did that free hand!

CookieD-oh -- Hey, I just recalled that many of the pumpkin pie cookies don't have any icing at all on the "crust" area. Cookie-dough-color is pretty close to crust-color, I guess! icon_biggrin.gif

Out of curiosity, I googled stacked cookies to see if there were any other interesting stacked-cookie creations out there

This is the Wilton Christmas tree set I mentioned.

Several people are making mini tiered cakes made from stacked cookies. Very cute!

These are sweet little no-occasion cookie stacks.

And here is an AMAZING creation from a fellow CC member! WOW! icon_eek.gif

I was thinking if you had circle cookie cutters in the rigt sizes, you might be able to stack them to make a flower pot... and then put a cookie-on-a-stick flower in the pot!

Hmmm. I was planning on a stacked design for mine. Now I may have to re-think that so I'm not just a big copycat! LOL

Please DO post your stacked cookie!!! I'd love to see it and I'm sure others would, too.

All i can say is ...........WOW!

these cookies look amazing, I had made some cross cookies a little while ago that haven't been posted yet but I'm not sure that Crosses say "spring"?


I have to find a reason to make some birdbath cookies! So cool..........love Gemini's too (always do), hope you post a pic of the pillows when the're done too!


The picket fence is a really cute idea, gotta find a way to encorporate that....would be really cool around the edge of a cake too.

As for the lemon meringue, how sweet......I love food cookies (ones that look like other foods) as for getting the "fluffiness" on it? What about using some fondant and give it a 3-D look............wonder if you could even 'toast' some MMF to make the top REALLY look like meringue that's been toasted? Like blow torch the top of the mmf?

Truly brilliant! I love this thinking outside of the box! Very cool!

CookieD-Oh - Glad to offer thoughts, but honestly, it is pretty darn adorable without any changes. icon_smile.gif I really love it as is.

All the cookies so far are super cute.....The bird bath is just crazy original. As always, fun designs & so festive. Great job everyone!!!!

CookieD-oh - I DO love your pie cookie as is. Made me want lemon right on sight!!! But, there's been some chat about "fluff". Ever see those cupcake cookies everyone makes? Or, even Santa's beard? I can't site specific examples, but it appears as though there are swirls piped then sprinkled with sugar on top of a dry base coat. Could you make the meringue "tufts" some how this way? Or...shoot...if you want to get technical, you got an airbrush? You could airbrush on the browned part.

I'm a geometric/concept type girl. No good at drawing so these designs are difficult for me. You guys amaze me! I'm a pretty good "idea girl" though. Just lack the skills for execution!

Rock on with your bad selves!!!

I could make a flower cookie (yawnnnnn) But, I won't insult you all with my simpleton ways!! ha ha ha

EvMarie: Please do post your flower cookies!!!! There is no such thing as a "yawn" cookie, in my opinion! You never know what might inspire someone -- a color scheme, a shape, the fact that they happen to have a certain cookie cutter on hand... Please post!

Hey, that's a neat idea about actually torching the cookie. Don't have a torch, but I always thought the professionals look so cool (or should I say HOT icon_lol.gif ) when they use one. Could you use melted toasted marshmallows?
