I think they are really cute, but I know you are looking for specific thoughts. If you don't like the black around cookie monster's eyes, do you want to try blue? Did you do a test cookie without any outlining? I am guessing so, but thought I'd mention it. Personally, I think that they are great, so I am afraid that I am not much help.
They are great. If anything I would outline Cookie's eyes the same way you did elmo's (ie. all white).
I think they look great too! I agree with you though about the black outline around Cookie Monster's eyes. I don't think you need it, and it would look fine with just white.
Yeppers - all white.
I agree with all, the black around the eyes is too dark - if you really want to outline the eyes - it does make them stand out more - why not use a light brown?? or chocolate?? Will still give the effect of them standing out, but not so dark.
But i think your cookies are awesome!!
These are absolutely adorable!!!
I agree with you and the others. No outline around CM's eyes. I would make his eyes more 'googly' too. The pupils closer to the center with one slightly higher than mid-point and the other slightly lower.
I also think CM's mouth should be bigger. The actual muppet doesn't even have cheeks! But, I think you could leave a little blue on the sides of the mouth.
Elmo is perfecto!
i agree about the outline... i would also keep his pupils bigger than emlo's... exactly how you have it.
Cookie monster doesn't have a nose?
I couldnt believe CM didnt have a nose either.
thanks for all the advice. I will post the cookies after I make them.
One more question- How far in advance can i make them....his party is Nov 2nd. The cookies are NFSC and will have bc and RI on them.
They look great...but I agree, no outline on CM's eyeballs. You did a great job! He'll love them!
I dont know how long bc on a cookie will last, but if done with royal icing, they should last from now till then with no problems, if you keep them out of the sun
I have made some sesame street cookies too. Take a look but yours are great - I would not do a black outline on the eyes.
