Yesterday i went to a Basic Cookie Decorating class by Toba Garett. I was wonderful. My only down fall was not having enough time for them to dry. My commute home, two hours later the icing went all over. Class was fun and interesting. I loved learning about this and her little tricks. Her cookie recipe was good, as well as the icing on the cookies. We added flavor to each color. I hope i have more time to do this at home. but i'm guessing it's less time consuming than decorating a cake. Is it? Thanks for looking!

so pretty!

As for hoping cookies are generally less time-consuming than decorating cakes...nope!

100 cookies takes me about 2 hours to bake off, about 4 to 5 hours to ice and 2 hours to pack in bags and ribbons. WAY more time than a cake would. icon_cry.gif

I'm with antonia, I can spend days on a batch of cookies where it would only take me a couple hours to do a cake. I like doing cookies more though because of all the little mini payoffs you get.
