It's nice to meet an "old" friend from the old site. My husband kind of made the new baker logos. He purchased a drawing of a girl and then manipulated it so that she could be baking, decorating, etc. He did the old one completely from scratch, but he wasn't ever happy with her. I thought she was cute, too! icon_biggrin.gif

Ha ha... oh no. I wish that were me!! icon_biggrin.gif My mom keeps telling me "You need to put a picture of yourself on the site!" And I keep dragging my feet. One of these days.... We're actually getting ready to do some videos for the site, so I might reveal what my hands look like soon!! (a step at a time)

I'm very new to cookie decorating and I just wanted to say that I LOVE your website! So informative! I've bookmarked yours and several others of these wonder cookie decorators sites and can only hope to become as good! My first cookie bouquet was done in February and I'm doing another today. It's a big step (for me!) to go from cakes to cookies, but I'm really enjoying it.

Have a great day!

Welcome to CC Karen.
Your website is awesome. I have been toying with the idea of doing cookies, as my kids are all grown & gone and I don't get that many opportunities to practice decorating on cakes. Your website has decided me to go ahead and give it a try. Thanks for sharing the great tutorials and recipies....Can't wait to try them out!

I don't right now, but we're working on it. International shipping is tough to get set up, but hopefully it will be ready to go soon. Thanks for asking!

Thanks again for everyone's warm welcome. I really appreciate it!

I just whipped up some of your cookie dough from the recipe on your site, the dough is the best I have ever tasted, on my quest to find the perfect recipe! Its in the fridge chilling now, Im excited to bake them. I am a new sugar cookie baker, and as of yet, I have not found the right recipe to use.

Your website is great, the pictures are awesome! They really show you how to do things, and as a person that learns from watching, its been very helpful. Im new here too! But everyone has been super nice!

Great to have you here!

happy baking

Welcome Karen,so glad to have you! While I do not do a great deal of cookies I try to keep some in stock. Choc chip, triple choc cran oatmeal, pecanlace with orange filling, oatlace with choc filling, raspberry linzer cookies, mint choc hearts that are mint choc cookie dough brushed on the inside with a light layer of choc then filled with a mint cream filling, and just rencently came up with a new one hazelnut shortbread that is dipped in Albert Ulster Hazelnut candy cream only about half way up the cookie, then dipped again in melted schockinag choc up just far enough to leave a small line of the hazelnut candy cream peeking out then sprinkled with some crushed hazelnut...those I can't keep on the shelves.
I was looking at your web site and can I just say that it is fantastic...I am so inspired I just may need to whip up some of your sugar cookies tonight becasue they sound so darn yummy!!
Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful cookie know how with us. icon_smile.gif

Pumpkinwaffles, I hope you like the cookies once they're baked. I really like all of the recipes on my site, and I'm pretty picky! I'm glad you're enjoying the site!

Spongemomsweatpants, your cookies sound amazingly wonderful. I could go for some right now! icon_smile.gif I'm halfway through a pregnancy and I'm at my pig-out stage! icon_biggrin.gif Sounds mighty good. I'm glad you liked my site!

By the way, I love everyone's forum names. Now I wish I would have been more creative with mine!

Welcome to CC Karen! I'm so glad you joined us! I must say, back in the late 90's (early 2000's) I stumbled across your site and you inspired me so much with my cookie business! I primarily do cakes now, but still love to dabble with cookies from time-to-time! Your new site is very informative and I love how you've expanded! I also remember seeing pictures of you family on your old site and you have a beautiful one at that! Welcome, again!
A BIG fan from Ohio!

That is too funny-- I just happened upon your site this morning and ordered some cookie cutters--thought it was a great site. Best of luck with your business- I think you'll be very successful!

Hi Karen! Welcome to CC. I had a few minutes to browse your site and have saved it to me favs to go back again later on. Looks like lots of good stuff there. I saw a couple of cutters I've been wanting too so I'll be checking it out more another time. Have fun here. Many good people to share with and learn from.
