Hello cookie makers!

The consensus for Septembers Cookie Club theme is SCHOOL, so anything related to school is fair game - remember, you can interpret the theme any way you like (OK, Zamode?). Have fun!!!


Just to refresh your memory, here are the "guidelines" for the cookie club posts (from Cake_Princess' original post):

* The group decided that all pictures must be new pictures (and new cookies). Meaning if you have a previous group of cookies already in your album (or in the forum) even if it depicts the theme you cannot use it. The idea of the monthly theme is to get our creative juices/new ideas flowing.

* Please do not post monthly theme cookies to your personal album or cookie Gallery until after the monthly theme has expired. The reason for this is that as a group we all decided each picture must be new and not previously uploaded to the Galleries. Seeing that we have no way of knowing when pictures were uploaded this will help to prevent any squabbles about people using previously uploaded pictures.

* You can use any medium to decorate your cookies - fondant, royal icing, butter cream etc. The only stipulation is it has to be a medium used in cookie or cake decorating. So no play doh!! Please let us know which medium you used to decorate your Cookies and any techniques that you used.

* Please post pictures in this thread (Do not create a separate thread for your pictures). Please only post a maximum of 3 pictures per person for the monthly theme. You may however use graphics programs to create ONE collage of different pictures/angles.

* In your post please let us know why you chose the design you did if the reason is not obvious. (For Example if the theme was Music and you made ghost cookies then let us know the connection. Ghost = Phantom and Phantom of the opera relates to music).


Happy Baking, everyone! I cant wait to see the results!!

I know it's not quite September yet but I thought maybe I could get an extra-credit point for handing in my project in a timely manner. icon_confused.gif

My girls are finishing up their fourth week of school already! icon_cry.gif I hate that we start soooo early.

Anyway, the pencil cookies were the idea of my 6-year-old daughter. She drew it, I baked it. Looking at the photo, I realize I should have smoothed the bottom edges of the cookies. They are hand-cut and in a hurry. icon_redface.gif

No fails with Wilton's Pour Cookie Icing (aka Toba's)

GREAT job KOS!!

yankeegal Posted 1 Sep 2006 , 12:19pm

Great job Kos! Love the pencils!

Samsgranny Posted 1 Sep 2006 , 1:34pm

Wow, Kos, love the pencils and the busses. I am amazed, the pencils have 5 different colors of icing!Great work...how did you do the number two?

Kos Posted 1 Sep 2006 , 5:56pm

Thanks guys!

The Wilton recipe is in their yearbooks. I'm sure it is also online. It is basically the same icing as Toba's. (I have been adding a Tablespoon of {room temperature}butter to the powder sugar before adding the liquids). I like this icing. I love working with the royal but I'm not a fan of the texture nor are my kids. My 5-year-old says she doesn't like the "rocks" on the cookies. icon_lol.gif

Samsgranny - for the #2, I just outlined a "2" and then filled in around it to make the square.

Thanks for the compliments!

Wow Kos great cookies. Your 6 year old DD did a good job too. I really like how shiny they are. I might have to try that recipe.

manatee19 Posted 1 Sep 2006 , 6:59pm

I'm amazed! You made the cute bus come to life. LOVE the eyebrows!

Kos: Did the butter make the icing shine? I've been trying to get my icing shine more with corn syrup, but Maybe butter is the ticket.....Does the icing last long? On cookie or in container? Thanks
