I lurk on here daily and occasionally ask questions and put my 2-cents in to questions others ask. I just posted some pictures for the first time. There is no way I am a cookie diva compared to some of those on this site. Right now I am just doing it as a hobby and I love it. I couldn't possibly thank each one of you individually for your ideas that have inspired me so I wanted to just say thank you to you all. I am still trying to figure out which icing is the best for me to use. My family and friends are huge buttercream fans so the last cookies I did was with rolled buttercream (which was great and easy) but I used MBC for the piping and it dried too hard and fell off. I have yet to try Antonia's icing but think I will give it a shot. Thanks for looking at my pictures and I welcome any comments!
I just happened to have peaked at all of yours in the gallery. You've been so busy, they are great cookies! Nice job on them.
As for suggestions, a tiny thought might be to photograph them without the white paper doilies behind them. The patterning of them distracts the viewer's eye from the designs on your cookies....it's just a bit too busy. I'd love to see them on a plainer background. Maybe just the black?
Nice job on all of those cookies! I'll throw in my cents worth and give a thumbs-up on Antonia74's RI. I know I couldn't do my cookies without her recipe! Again, your cookies look great! Keep up the fantastic work!
I think your cookies look great! I agree about a plain background when photographing, and about Antonia's royal-It is the best!! Keep up the good work!
