Okay, Dawn, that jungle cake is jaw-dropping fantastic! Your cookies have always been works of art, and the cake provided a wonderful back-drop and highligthed them to perfection. Gorgeous!!!

ziggytarheel, yes they are beautiful, and I agree flourgirl is very talented.

I live somewhere very hot and most cakes have to go in the fridge, even mud cakes.

Maybe it will grow on me. It is all down to personal taste. icon_smile.gif

When I do cakes that are going to be eaten by mostly kids, I try to use cookies as decoration. Would hate to have to tell a kid whos asking for the decoration "well, its gumpaste. technically , it's edible BUT.."

If you look at my cakes, The Ed hardy tattoo is cookie, and so is the Elmo haunted house. For the sleepover cake, I did the headboard out of cookie and dipped it in pink chocolate.

Cookies on cakes! Never even thought about it, now I'm going to have to try it! Talking about doing things all edible for kid's cakes...I saw somewhere on the web where a guy uses candy to make decorations. Like bubblegum for flowers, I thought it was really neat so I made a flower from Bubblicious gum and it came out Great! I'll have to post a pic of it.

sara91, I think the cupcakes with the cookie toppers are fantastic, especially for children, how fun for them they get 2 sweets in 1. icon_lol.gif

ok gang..you've inspired me! My oldest daughter is having her birthday in early May (she lives in Chicago) and I told her that I wanted to make her a cake and send it with a friend driving there to help her celebrate. I've been trying and trying to decide what to make for her and since I'm def. not a cake person at least I'll feel confident with the cookie decorations. What a great idea! icon_smile.gif I'll be sure to let you know what I come up with. Thanks to everyone that shared their fab. pics.

Like Joanne, I was inspired by this thread to try decorating a cake with cookies. While the end result isn't as impressive as those posted here, I was pretty happy with the cake. Most importantly, my niece was thrilled with her college graduation cake!

Ok...WOW Gemini and kenadacookie, those cakes are GREAT!! After this thread, I think this is what I'm going to to do for my son's 1st b-day cake. The party decor has cupcakes and teddybears, and I have those cutters...(must be fate)! I do have one question.....How do you get the cookies to stick to the side of the cake when there is only a cake board underneath? Do you just put a drop of butter cream on the back? Any tips would be greatly apprecieated. icon_biggrin.gif

The buttercream I use doesn't crust, so it was very easy to just gently push the cookie onto the cake. For crusting BC, I'd put a dab of icing on the back of the cookie and press onto the cake. The drink cookies I used were tall enough that they just tilted slightly toward the cake.

I've been constantly checking your photos, anxiously waiting to see your cake! I'm thrilled for you that it made it to Chicago. I had no doubts that it would be a hit...you do fantastic work!

P.S. - Did you notice my niece's name? JoAnne. It's almost like Twilight Zone for us concerning these cakes!
