Hello fellow cookie makers!

The October 2007 theme is Halloween Monsters!!

Remember, anyone can participate! We love to have new people join in the cookie-making!! Please join us!!


Here are the cookie clubs guidelines":

* 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. Please let us know about your creations - which medium you used to decorate your cookies, any techniques that you used, the type of cookie, etc.

* The group decided that all pictures must be new pictures (and new cookies). If you have a previous group of cookies already in your album (or in the forum) even if it depicts the theme please no not use it for this cookie club theme. The idea of the monthly theme is to get our creative juices/new ideas flowing and produce something new.

* Please do not post monthly theme cookies to your personal album or the cookie Gallery until after the monthly theme has expired (the end of the month). Even though there has been some discussion about this, and we tried eliminating this guideline for a couple of months, if we post to the gallery right away, it seems to lessen the flow of traffic to this thread. Therefore, we will return to each picture being new and not previously/currently uploaded to the Galleries.

* Please post pictures in this thread. Do not create a separate thread for your pictures). Please post a maximum of 3 photo posts per person in this thread for the monthly theme. You may however use graphics programs to create a collage of different pictures/angles (that collage will count as one photo post). When the month is over, please feel free to post as many pictures as you want to the galleries. We do love to see pictures!!

* The purpose of choosing a monthly theme is to have a central theme for everyone participating to follow in order to allow us an opportunity to be creative, try new things, and learn from each other. Please try to follow the monthly theme.

* Sometimes the connection to the theme isnt obvious to other people. 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).

* Everyone who wishes to has an opportunity to suggest a theme in the monthly suggestion thread, and all themes suggested are considered and commented on by interested members of the community. The theme is chosen at the beginning of each month by Cake_Princess or Bonniebakes (the theme is chosen based on what seems to have the most support for that particular month from the group in the suggestions thread and any PMs Cake_Princess or Bonniebakes receives, not necessarily by an actual vote count) and the new theme is posted near the beginning of the month. If your suggestion wasnt chosen this month, please suggest it again in the future!



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

icon_redface.gif Okay you "cookie makers" if I wanted to submit a cookie that I have made, does it have to be one that I have made all by myself? I mean, can it be one that I have seen somewhere before and just added my own touch to?

I want to be part of this fun thing. Just wondering. icon_smile.gif

mommicakes - do you mean does it have to be your very own creation/idea for the decorating part?

You can certianly get inspiration from a cookie (or cookies) you've seen before!!!

I'm so glad you'll be joining us!

Yes you post in this thread and you post anytime by the end of the month. And don't add them to your album until after the month ends. icon_smile.gif

I have my husband's birthday cake to make this week as well as a 1/2 sheet cake order for a 6 year old's birthday due on Friday so after that I will start on my Halloween Monsters, I am very excited. If I didn't have those 2 cakes to make then I would be starting tomorrow with my monsters.

So hurry up the rest of you and show us those Monsters.

I hope to get in on this too. I got my outside Halloween decorations put up yesterday, made my cake of the month with 1 tip last week on my days off, looks like I should get my monster cookies done on my days off this next week....that wouldn't be regular weekend days, I work in a bakery and Tuesday, Wednesday are my days off this week. It would be nice if someone would jump in there and post some pictures.....kind of get my creative juices flowing.

I had to work today. Don't see any cookies yet.

Thank you for the comment on my avatar pic. It is a cupcake cake. He is lots of fun to make. He was originally supposed to just be holding a pumpkin, but it turned out that he looks like he is stealing it and running away. It kind of made me laugh when I got it finished.
Two more days and I will be baking cookies. I am kind of getting excited about it.

This made me laugh so hard!!!! I really like how he is stealing and running!!! Wicked cute. It almost looks like he is a cake you actually carved. I love him. He gave me a thought in the middle of the night, I will have to see if I can actually do it. Thanks for the inspiration!!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
