i'm new to cookies (cakes too really) but i was planning on doing cookie bouquets for my DD teacher appreciation in May. I thought it might be fun to do this as a throw down.

anyone interested in doing a cookie bouquet throw down with me? it would be a school/teacher type theme.

shellzey Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 7:52am

cookie throw down is like the cake throw down they are doing on here. on personchallenges someone else to a bake off. then the pics are posted on CC for people to judge which they like better.

shellzey Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 8:00am

shellzey Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 8:18am

was thinking....should we specify how many cookies in the bouquet???

melissaanne Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 9:35am

Hi Ladies,
I would like to be involved in a cookie bouquet throw down sometime.
I am not entirely sure how it works once two people have started.
Mel

kneadacookie Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 1:02pm

sounds good...what's the date to email our pics to curtsmin???

oooh, the pressure!!!

wyckedwytch Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 2:50pm

It looks like the two people in the throwdown get to pick the theme according to the cake throwdown rules.

I would love to try this with someone and since Mother's day is in May I would be willing to try out that as a theme (since I haven't figured out what I would do yet. Other theme's I would love to work on (I need to round out my holidays). Mother's day, Father's day, Grandparents day, fourth of july, Summer, The Twenty-thirty something woman, and Halloween.

Is anybody interested?

wyckedwytch Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 2:52pm

Oh one more a unisex type birthday bouquet where using similar cutters but the colors would be easy to swap depending on the sex of the child.

Curtsmin24 Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 7:14pm

I solemnly swear I will not post my vote. judge.gif ......But I can't promise I won't be secretly rooting for my fav. icon_lol.gif Good luck ladies!! Let the throwdown begin. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

wgoat5 Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 10:37pm

ohh ohh I wanna play! This sounds like fun! Count me in!

kneadacookie Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 10:47pm

yeah christi, we should post your rules here, maybe with a few changes.

i think we need to have a cookie min and max, or maybe just a number

they need to be made in a bouquet, not just laid in a basket(i thought about it)

and are we emailing these bouquets by may 1st???

can you think of anything else??

wgoat5 Posted 20 Apr 2008 , 10:54pm

I'll pm you the rules and you can change them if you want icon_smile.gif
