I'm sorry--where are my manners? I forgot to mention two important things.
( To busy competing in lame posting contests )
1. YOUR cookies BLOW my socks off!!!!!!! Anyone reading this who doesn't know your work already,should look at MystiqueFires photos NOW!!! Those American girls/ dolls are AMAZING.
2.You're a bakery OWNER!!!!! icon_eek.gif I'm in awe and green with envy. Very cool.

*Blushes* Well I have a confession... I dont really OWN a bakery per se.. it's out of my kitchen that I CALL my bakery... =)

So technically we are ALL bakery owners LOL!

And thank you on complimenting my cookies, especially being as yours pretty much rock!!

Ok, I was in Florida last week and didn't realize I left my camera cord there when I came home. MIL mailed it to me and I just got it back tonight, so here's my input. I was happy to post it until I saw Nancy's cookies. Sheesh... give a girl a break, I'm only human!! Just teasing! The most beautiful part of your work Nancy, aside from the obvious amazing look of it, is that you are so down to earth about it! You inspire me!

Here we go... I had a request for a few dozen of these, and I think they qualify as royalty... after all, JD is "The King of Tractors" icon_cool.gif

Handcut (never doing that again!!) choc NFSC, MMF with royal icing accents, dragees and .

BarbaraK, how long did it take you to hand cut one of those elephants?! They look absolutely fantastic!

Yelp your right Melvira, John Deere is king of all tractors. So it makes the royalty lists. icon_biggrin.gif They look great.

Melvira, love the tractors. Your John Deer green is perfect color. I would rather see one that I can eat then have to drive one again. icon_lol.gif

very cute

NICE TRACTOR, Melvira!!!!!!!
( Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd use in my lifetime)
AND----even nicer S-T-R-E-T-C-H of the royalty theme!!!!!thumbs_up.gif

Thanks for your kind words. Yeah, I'm so down to earth, I can now see the crumbs, cat fur, and general filth that is my daily floor icon_cry.gif
And, Melvira,Mistress of the dark chocolate who stays up too late posting, what exactly is PS?????
Powdered Sugar?
Polish Sausage?
Pig S#@*? icon_eek.gif

Well Nancy... since I can hardly imagine you'd get a buzz off of a baggie of pig poo, I have to admit I meant powdered sugar! icon_wink.gif You guys were on a sugar buzz and I was really enjoying it! Very entertaining! I did have to laugh about the 'frivilous posting' point... as if any of this ISN'T frivilous!! Oh, I know what they mean, it just struck me as funny at first!

Thanks for the tractor compliments! And I agree... rather eat one than ride one! icon_wink.gif

Jasmine!!!! You are SO right!!!! We are all running a business,doing paperwork, organizing, scheduling,delivering,talking to very nice or very irritating people,mopping, scrubbing,let alone lugging home flour, sugar, etc. to bake and decorate. Oh, and lets not forget, yelling at the stupid stuff the STAFF( US ) does every day!
Since I used to work in a "real" bakery, I do remember ALOT of other
stresses, but running our own bakeries is no small feat!!!
I'm calling myself a Bakery Owner from this moment on!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Holy COW- I didn't notice it was a cookie until I read the post about it being a cookie! I am still reading backwards so I haven't seen the king one yet.....the suspense is killing me!!

MY TURN. (Baked in my own bakery hahaha!!)

Made in honor of one of my favorite poems as a little kid:

The Queen of Hearts she made some tarts all on a summer's day;
The Knave of Hearts he stole the tarts and took them clean away.


The Queen of Hearts called for the tarts and beat the Knave full sore
The Knave of Hearts brought back the tarts and
vowed he'd steal no more.



I think it's really funny that I unintentionally made the kitchen look like its on fire!!

lil_cake_lady - it took me a couple of minutes to cut out each elephant. It only did about a dozen of them then I stopped.

Barbara, as wonderful as the Elephants turned out you need to have a cookie cutter made. For being hand cut you did an excellent job they look cookie cutter. Beautiful colors

I love the elephants thumbs_up.gif

Hey, THANK YOU, guys!!! I'm feelin' the luuuuv!!! icon_lol.gif
But, I mean it----I have no life, I live in my basement bakery like a pale,creepy, mad scientist, I have only a few dinky orders per week, my DH and DD only know me by the back of my head--either at this @#$!!!! computer or bent over a tray of cookies.
All of you would do overly-detailed-no-one-can-eat cookies too if you lived my miserable little cloistered life!!! icon_cry.gif
