Hello cookie makers!

The December theme is December. Any holiday, activity, weather, celebration, etc. if it happens in December, its fine! If the reason behind your cookie isnt obvious, please tell us about it!

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 December!!

Wow Yjudania, you did a great job! I love the snowmen's little faces. Just too cute. You have inspired me. I'll be baking this weekend!

Yjudania - Great cookies!! I'm definitely inspired now!

Yummy - this thread is a "club" not a contest. As long as you post during the month of December, the theme is the same. The theme changes each month.
Hope you join us!

i made 31 of these for a client who is using them as her gift tags. hair was colored to match the recipient even made a few with out hair for those that are hair challenged. i think i need to find a better camera, i seem to lose a lot of the details in my pics.

Those are adorable lacie!! I love your font! icon_smile.gif Try taking a picture of your cookies on a different background, like something tan if you have it. It is hard for a camera sensor to register all of the white w/out losing details in the brightness. HTH!

thank you !!! The gingerbread men are "black peters" They deliver the presents on the roof through the chimney with the saint nicolas. And they make the toys. It is a kind like the elves.

Wonderful angels, lots of nice details. I like the wings.
Its so nice to see your Christmas traditions. I forgot all about black peter. Is he the one who takes bad children away? I remember reading something to my kids when they were little about black peter but wasnt sure. You did a great job on both of them.

Thanks! They are Amy's (okieinalaska) soft gingerbread cookies from this thread:
They taste and smell like the ones my Grandmother used to make when I was a kid. I made the curly hair on them just the way she used to...

BarbaraK, help yourself!! I used tip 104 and just did tight ruffles. I just like the look it gives it! I don't like the tast of royal icing or color flow, so I use BC on my cookies, that makes it possible to do the 3-D effect, but you have to be a little more careful with the finished product, it doesn't dry as hard!
