Hi y'all! I made my first batch of cookies by using Penny's cookie recipe and Antonia's icing recipe. Since I have some animation drawing experience, I thought why not make my own animation character, so I drew a cute raccoon on a piece of paper and then I had my husband made a cookie cutter for me (I bought a homemade cookie cutter set from Off The Beaten Path website). I use fondant for flowers and leaves.

It took me to decorate this cookie for two hours and I was surprised how it turns out. I really enjoy it and I'm making some more this week. Right now, I'm working on a mouse with an umbrella.

Thank you, Cake Central and readers, for helping me to learn all about cookies!

The cookie is darling. Great job. I too can take up to 2 hours to decorate a cookie, especialy when I'm trying out a new design. I just made 24 cookies that took me about 9 hours to decorate. LOL. That's pretty typical for me. Well worth the time though. Your second one probably won't take as much time.

Thanks! I didn't realize how much frosting tips I needed, so I had to go out and get some more. I ended up with more than 6 tips to use for one color each. I use #2 tip to decorate and a squeeze bottle for the bigger part to fill.

Great job!! I am never telling anyone I know about this site--they are impressed by my cookies. If they saw yours(and others) cookies, they'd never want mine anymore.

Thanks - glad you like my cookie. As I mentioned on the other post recently, I am still working on a mouse with an umbrella (work called, had to leave the house) and also do some Hollywood-themed cookies for our July's cookie club here.
