Haha! It's funny, I was just about to say in another thread... here everyone thinks I'm so funny, and in my real life, people think I'm hilarious once they get to know me... but at first they are very intimidated by me. icon_lol.gif

Wow, Nancy, your cookies are awesome!!! You are an artist. Do you have a book? If not, you should have one. Your cookies are an inspiration to me. I hope someday I´ll do something half as beautiful as your cookies.

Nancy..........that Repunzel cookie is beautiful! I never thought of decorating cookies with all those different textures. It adds so much to the cookies. I will have to try it myself to see if it works....(for me). Amazing!!

Hey, I used to have a chipper little saying on there, but people kept acting like a-holes, so I had to lay down the law!!

On a serious note, just for reference, approximately how large is that rapunzel cookie? I just wanted to get a basic idea of scale. It's neat to kind of visualize!

Nancy, those are super, wonderful, fantastic, etc, etc, etc, cookies. Words cannot describe how fabulous it is. I showed it to my daughter and she just stood there with her mouth open and could not believe that was a picture of a cookie. Then she asked how come I don't make cookies like that!!

Melvira,
Geez, you were up a tad late. ( Ahhhhh-- Friday nights icon_cool.gifI can't even imagine a "chipper little saying" coming out of you! It would totally mess with our great image of you--Oh Sacred Mistress Of The Dark!!!

On your "serious" note---( put on your glasses, granny, I posted the size in my description above the photo) Awwww, wait, don't scroll ( sorry-need more java) I wrote that it's 9X3.25" -that was my lazy estimate, but it's actually 10X3"--you MADE me go down in my basement icon_mad.gifThanks, "see" ya later

I made you go down to the basement??!! Be glad I didn't make your pasty butt crawl out in the *gasp* sunlight!!! *hissss* *spit* icon_wink.gif
That is a huuuuge cookie! Mmmmm more to enjoy!

Edited to add: BTW... I was up partying last night... my baby stayed at Grandma's house for the night, so I stayed up late watching food network (What is it about Alton Brown??) and missing my baby!!

You and the kids are making me blush icon_redface.gifThank you all for the very, very nice comments.
And coming from you--I'm honored!!! Your cookies have always been some of my most favorites. Your Army guys are THE BEST!!!!! Your whole collection is great but a few more favorites are the Gnomes and that plate of Baby Shower cookies icon_eek.gifMy best,
Nancy

Wow, I just saw your Rapunzel cookie!!! It's amazing, it should be framed!
Have you illustrated any children's books?
I can just picture your cookies in a picture book.

Melvira,
Just saw your edit. Partying with Alton Brown--WOO HOO! ( He's a little manic for me) Now Tyler Florence---MMMMMM He cooks for me in my dreams. ( No, he ACTUALLY cooks for me--stop thinking that
icon_twisted.gifKiss your sweet baby for me. You are SO lucky. I'd give ANYTHING to have my 13 year old daughter be a baby again icon_cry.gif

Hi Leslie, (mitselicon_cool.gifThank you! Well, since no one is going to eat these things I might as well hang them up!! ( They're all getting dusty with flour on the top shelf of my bakers rack)
Yes, thank you for asking--I used to be an illustrator and did a bunch of kids stuff--books,toys,puzzles,etc. That kind of work dried up a bit after 20 years so I fell into cookie decorating when I saw a help wanted sign in a bakery window and worked there for a couple of years. ( Sorry--more than you asked for icon_redface.gifAgain, thank you icon_biggrin.gifNancy

Never a dull moment with all you guys here on CC.

I've told Melvira numerous times, that signature has me laughing everytime I see it. I'm going to have to start saying it to people that bug me while I'm decorating.

I hope you can stand one more low quality submission... cuz I made some last night/this morning for a local 'celeb' race car driver, he is called "The King of the Road" so I thought that would qualify!
