Ditto what everyone says about Nancy's cookies! True works of sugar art and in a class all her own.

GeminiRJ, you're in a class all your own as well! Your work has always impressed me! I sometimes imagine having a shop with you and Nancy in it, and I get the money giggles... as in... we'd be rich! hahaha. People would be like, "CakeWho? Ace of What?" hehehehe.

I meant to add... I think a book of her work would be INCREDIBLE! Again, not necessarily a 'how to do this' book because a lot of her work just requires a certain level of artistic ability that most people don't possess. But a book to just stare at in awe. To just flip through the pages and think... how the HECK does she DO that!!??

Did any of you ever see her Hagrid cookie? Worth it's weight in platinum if you ask me. Or...something MORE valuable than that! hahaha. And the super cool part about how she photographed it... in the grass with a tree in the background. Very well staged, just made it THAT much cooler!

Oooooo, like a cocktail table book! A book with pretty pictures for the express purpose of looking at and enjoying beautiful photography with a theme. But if Nancy did a book, I wouldn't be looking...I'd be drooling!

I'm blushing! Also, sigh. If only people didn't look at like I had spinach stuck in my teeth when I tell them that a custom decorated cookie can't be had for $1.

Oh Gem, do I EVER know that look!! Like you just ran over their dog and they don't know how to politely tell you what a worthless human you are, and how you've ruined their life!! And my cookies are nowhere near your artistic quality! I can't imagine being as detailed as you are for the price people around here are willing to pay. Ugh. icon_razz.gif

Okay, I'm seriously bummed.

So, I'm looking for some stellar examples of soccer balls. (I know...yawn....but I got an order and my last batch of soccer balls looked like fricken' steering wheels!) All I'm finding are people's pics non existent. I don't know who Nancy is. I must have missed her, I joined about a year or so ago. Doesn't sound like she's the soccer ball type....

However, I just wanted to put it out there: to all the great cookier's - thanks for sharing your pics. Those who still post 'em, those who took them off because of "queens of the snarky", and those who I've obviously missed out on.

I enjoy the lessons...

EvMarie, yah, unfortunately Nan has been away from CC longer than that. You're not finding ANY soccer balls? Or just not the ones you were hoping for? Maybe someone here could help you look...?

Here's a nice example of Soccer and basketball: http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/1515961734054302019GlNBqR

Ohhhh, I'm finding soccer balls but, I kinda wanted a couple examples to study. I compare my last "attempt" with what it looks like others have done technique-wise. It's a really analytical "non-artsy" way to go about it...but I want them perfect.

Thanks for the all the links....I was browsing very late last night and just got glassy eyed after the first pa-trillion pages.

bonniebakes - I love the look of your pink soccer balls...they have a quilted feel to them. Love it. I do love the "side peak" of the sports ball on the flickr option imagenthatnj....and the link you offered Melvira...has imperfect hex on the outer portions....but really, it looks stretched almost, kinda life like in that respect.

See, I'm a poser!!!!!....I just analyze until I get it right. I think I just found my examples! I really appreciate it. Thanks everyone!

I agree the pic I linked is very much not a "this must be perfect" representation. But it's fun, and fairly well done. I know what you mean though, when you just want it to be perfect, and even though you're the only crazy person that would notice, you can't stop yourself from mentally abusing you!! I did this gorgeous cake, a cross with white easter lillies on it, it was really pretty, everyone went nuts for it, but all I can think when I look at the pictures is, "There is one too many petals on those flowers." It makes me crazy! Even though I agree the overall effect is great, the cake is pretty, but that petal!! It's like the Telltale Heart... THE EYE, THE EYE!! Hahaha. Ok, sorry, I'll stop spreading my 'crazy' now! HA! Doubtful!

Oh, I'm so NOT the piper extraordinaire.... but, I'm determined to get it right. Even if it's just a soccer ball.

If nothing else, I'm learning patience & really....how to be nice to myself. I'm so not the artist like some people on here. But, I have a good business head. I'm much better at non-decorated types of cookies. I make a bunch of different types of specialty stuff. But, I still like to learn how to decorate cut outs.

No need to "stop spreading your crazy". It's refreshing, especially when you get to readin' some of these "tight pantied" posts. tee hee!

Haha! Amen to that! thumbs_up.gif I am pretty much the bane of those people's lives, because I'm heavy handed with the sarcasm, and I'm somewhat of a master at being inappropriate. It's not that I CAN'T behave... but what fun would it be? icon_confused.gif
