i'll probably need a little longer than the first if that's okay. how about by may 10? that would be good for me.
i agree with picking a number or atleast a range of how many cookies. it also has to be a bouquet not just in a box.
now i imagine the container and the display of it is all part of the judging. is there any rules in regards to that?
the 10th works for me!
maybe between 7 and 11 cookies?
i don't see any necessary rules to containers or displays
Ok.... Melissaanne... Wyckedwytch....Mawagner.... Why can't we do a throwdown between the four of us? Is there a limit to how many people can be in a cookie throwdown? I haven't done very many cookies, but I'd love to try this... I think it would be a lot of fun!!!
Let me know and we'll take off running on our own "Holiday Theme" Cookie Throwdown.. and being as Mother's day is coming up... I think that would be AWESOME!!
I'm game if y'all are...
On the cake TD they have two starting now. The second TD was cancelled due to illness in Wendy's family which prevented her from finishing her cake. You could do the same thing with the cookies, have several going but someone will have to keep track (someone who can juggle??) My hat is off to all of you, I don't have the guts to try this but I love looking at all the pics and reading the posts.
Good luck to all
a throw down is between two people. but the four of you could do two throw downs. come on girls. go for it!!!!
I would absolutely LOVE to do it... Any takers? Let's get this party started....
Mamajan, Mwanger, and Melissaanne,
I'm totally in and since we are getting a later start I would say let's have till the 19th so everyone has 4 weekends to work on them( I don't want to jeapordize anyone's day job).
So are you interested in Mother's day or something else? If this really takes off we could do a throwdown each month using whatever holiday or occasion that happens during that month! Think of all the ideas we could end up with!
Just let me know and then I'll take you down! I really don't have a mean bone in my body (Though my teenage daughter might not agree ).
I am in... I gotta tell you though... I have never done anything like this... so I guess it's time to get this old girl in gear!.... I would LOVE doing this every month.
Just remember.... us "southern girls" love a good challenge....
And for the record... I don't have a mean bone in my body either, but my oldest son calls me "Drill Sergeant"... go figure!
Mother's Day isn't that far away... should we just skip Mother's Day and go for the next holiday? Memorial Day is the 26th... or Father's Day is June 15th... Let me know..
I'm gearing up now... let's do it!
What are the rules for a "Cookie Bouquet Throw Down"?
i just got the rules from the cake throw down. i'll try to reword them for cookies, and post later(or sooner(or later)) it's such a crazy day
Count me in! I'm at work so I can't post much, but just wanted to let you that I'm in! I'll check back later for details! I'm definitely excited! I think Mother's Day would be great...but I'm really up for anything WOO HOO lol
so mamajan and wyckedwytch are cookie bouquet throw down #2. you two need to decide on your theme etc.
this is so fun!!
oh i guess mawagner is in too...you guys will have to figure out who challenges who LOL
Any thoughts on how you would like to work this out? I am willing to wait if there is not anyone up for it. We haven't heard yet from melissanne...so maybe once we hear from her we could get a couple more going.
So, do we want to give melissanne a little time to respond? or do we go on with three?
Just let me know... wyckedwytch and I have already made contact, so we're ready "to rumble"... HA
I might be interested in the next td--i've never done one or seen how it works so i'd like to see how this works (also, i'm a little nervous around you cookie goddesses
iwas just in the middle of typing a message to you when all the power in the house went out!! You have had a lot of post since yesterday. It is 9am here, so I miss a bit wwith the time difference.
Mawagner, I would love to do a throwdown with you. I was thinking because you see a lot of holiday cookies posted already, what about children's birthdays. Not baby cookies, older. What do you think Mawagner. Do you have anything you want to try? Will we go with the same amount of cookies 7 or 9?
I'll send her a pm and see if she is still interested.
Sorry about the errors in my post, I should have checked it before I sent it. Typing is not a strong point for me!
I just sent you a pm! LOL Children's birthdays would be fun..I'm ready! Do we need someone that is willing to post the pics for us? I haven't read all the rules yet...need to go do that!
Do you want to make it for a girl or a boy, or a particular age group? Mel
Would someone be willing to post the our pictures for our throwdown?
They will also be due on the 19th of May!
By the way, I could post photos for one of the other groups if that hasn't been sorted out yet.
Ok...so officially it is children's birthdays...no specific gender or particular age group. We will have 7-9 cookies in our bouquet and will post them on May 19th. It will be Melissa Anne vs. Melissa Ann...LOL No cowering in the corner for me..I'm comin out fightin! (Please be gentle! LOL)
I guess it's gonna be wyckedwytch and myself doing a throw down and then you two doing another. We've got our theme together, we just need some rules to go by...
I'm so excited... This is gonna be the coolest thing yet!!!
Has anybody received any rules yet on the Cookie Throw Down?
I see the Cake Throw Downs are going good... We just need some rules...
kneadacookie was going to revamp the cake throw down rules. good luck ladies. this is going to be fun. i think i've come up with a pretty good idea for our throw down....LOOK OUT KNEADACOOKIE lol
Ok guys, I hope this is ok. I copied this from the cake throw down rules, adding or changing where I thought it needed....
1. Any member may challenge another CC member to a TD. The TD will begin and end on the specified dates, so all pictures of completed cookie bouquets can be uploaded for judging at the same time. This will make it easier for all CC members to judge each TD photo, and all winners can be announced at the same time.
2. Throw Downs begin on the 1st day of every month. They will end inexactly 3 weeks from the start date, at which time your pictures need to be sent to the poster. Pictures need to be sent to the poster by 3:00 pm CST.
3. You may submit up to 3 photos for judging.
4. You may choose your decorating medium, be it marshmallow fondant, rolled buttercream, royal, glace... Everything must be edible.
5. The loser will be the poster of the new throwdown.
6. A throwdown should be as equal in decorating skills as possible. If you are the throwdown winner, try to choose a member with "equal or greater than" skills as yourself.
7. The throwdown challengers will determine the theme of the bouquet.
8. The winner of the throwdown continues to compete until they lose. Once a contestant has lost, they must wait 12 months before participating again.
9. Only 2 members may compete in any particular throwdown, however, there can be more than one throwdown going on at a time.
10. Bouquets must have between 7 and 11 cookies. All cookies must be arranged in a bouquet, and not just thrown in a basket.
11. Judging may include not only the cookies, but the packaging as well. So, keep this in mind when choosing a container.
ok, so that's what I have. Let me know if you think we need to add or change anything!!
Sounds great to me... So we actually don't start until May 1st right? and then end the 22nd... am I correct with this thinking?
I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!! Are you ladies ready to rumble??? Let the throwdown begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!
