OMG!!!!! Nancy, those cookies defy words! THEY ARE SO GREAT! I love that Roy-Al-T; excellent idea! LOL
Wow NancysFancy, you're a genius! I love the "roy-al-t" cookies. I can't decide if I like them or the headless wife better. I love her expression.
Do you handcut your cookies?
Nancysfancy, --- love the Roy Al T. Now thats creative!
Great job on all the cookies everyone,,,
Please, when are you going to have a class????
I will go anywhere to learn from you.
That's some patience and a steady hand Nancy!
WOW! There is no words to describe yor talent. WOW! Now that's being creative with Roy Al T.
OMG, again, I have no words for your work.... just AMAZING!! You have a true gift!
Wow, Nancy! Your cookies are great! You have to do a tutorial telling us your secrets.
I have some cookies that have been a royal pain in my ....backside all week. Does that count?
I think it should
I was in a zamode mood...Cookie sheets threw the window.
It's liberating....then you'll be ready to try again later
Okay, I give up.... Didn't see the first time "the Royal pain" was suggested. I guess i was to frustrated to even pay close enough attention.
then after seeing Nancy's cookies... flip me over, I am done on this side.
sheeshhhhhhh what a week.
**sets up a garage sale, with notice of mostly bakery items.***
Shyann, look at your signature.....no giving up. If I can keep going, you can.
Thanks very, very much Tayesmama,Kos,debilou68, mitsel8, Zamode, mis nefgaby, Gapi !!!!!!!!!
You guys are super nice. Glad you like the weird one. That's in my mental comfort zone.
In answer to a few comments and questions:
1.Kos, thank you but I'm soooo not a genius. Okay, I can draw but if you ask me to add 2+2, I would hesitate. Really. My skills are VERY limited. And yes, I handcut the dough but only if I'm doing one or a few, otherwise I'll annoy my hubby 'till he makes me a cutter.
2.mitsel8----you're very sweet. So, really, you'll follow me?? How about next week in Barbados on the beach!!! My fee? Hmmmm- let me check airfares,etc. LOL !!!!
3. nefgaby, you crack me up. Could you use any more emoticons??? Thanks
4. Gapi, thank you. I'd be honored if anyone wanted a tutorial. But it would be short!!! Here it is: google images, do sketch, draw sketch on cookie with edible pen, fill it in with royal. That's it. In other words, no good secrets. I
wish I had some 'cause these are so labor-intensive that they will NEVER be repeated.
.....no giving up. If I can keep going, you can.
LOL.... I love your emoticons.
Superb cookies Nancy!! I love all the details in the Henry VII cookie but my fav is the Roy-Al-T. Great thinking.
Ok now that I have picked up my jaw from my keyboard lol I can say Nancy I'm floored those cookies are beyond belief. When I see how much some of those celebrity bakers ask for their cookies you could easily get like 100 dlrs a cookie for the henry the 8th it is fantastic. And talk about imagination lol with the roy al t I mean how cute is that? lol Take a bow girl you deserve it.
Here is my addition. I think it can be part of royalty. If you kiss them it will turn into a prince which is part of royalty. Although it doesn't measure up to what's been posted but here they are. Oh and they are Sarah's (baking 911) in trial still peanut butter cutout cookies with Sweet Annie's icing.
And darcat!!!! Your comment MADE my day because I'm in the middle of a STUPID, TINY wedding cookie order where the client beat me and my price down mercilessly!!! So I'll just imagine that I can charge more someday,thanks to you.
mis,ADORABLE frogs!!!!! Yeah, we gotta kiss alot of 'em before we find our prince!!!!!!
Nancy, those cookies are AMAZING!!!! My fave is the Henry the 8th... partially because I'm a huge history buff
(yea, I'm cool.)
And those froggies came out really well! I think they count! =)
Thank you! Ummm, "Cool History Buff"??? (oxymoron, perhaps!!) LOL !!!!
Hey, I had to look up which # wife Anne Boleyn was AND I could not spell her surname. Bet you knew both so who's the cool and smart one here!!!!!
Adorable!! Those are the cutest!!! I can't even comment on Nancy's!! I am not worthy! Hahaha! Those are amazing!!
Geez, I was all set to post mine but forget it now! I am sooo not worthy!!
the frogs are sooooooo cute and I love the easter ones especially the bunny lol they all put a smile on my face thank you everyone.
Nancy_ I visited your website. Words cannot express....I know you said you just draw with edible pen and fill in with royal. I noticed that a LOT of your images were outlined in black...do you outlne with black RI??? And then fill in with the colors??
Thank you very much.
Yes, you're right. Almost all of my cookies are outlined in black royal icing with a #2 tip. I just like how it looks--similar to the way I draw any illustration.
