Here we go cookie makers!
May's theme, chosen by kneadacookie is:
OK...so next month's cookie of the month theme will be Family Vacations.
As last month, the first to post pictures for this month's theme gets to choose the theme for next month.
i'm ready for a vacation!!!
New to decorating cookies, so I am very excited to see what will be posting I can't wait (feel like a little girl at Christmas)
anyone ready to post pictures yet?
don't forget, if you're first, you get o choose next month's theme!
I'm working, I'm working but I had to go the dentist this morning, and didn't feel like decorating when I got home Maybe tomorrow.
I'm definitely going to make some - but I have 9 Mother's Day Bouquets due by Friday. YIKES!!! So, I'll be posting next week probably.
i want in...will try something out this weekend or next week
Taz-from-PR those are so cute! I know my kids would be going crazy for those.
Taz from PR - those are great!
...and, you get to pick the theme for the month of June! You've got a few weeks to come up with the one you want.
Those are very cute! Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with! My son's birthday cake this month might be able to fit in and since my main decorating medium on it will be cookies I can use it for this haha...If I have time I will try and make cookies 'just' for this though.
those cookies are amazing!!!!! I want to go to Florida........................
Great job, Taz! Disneyworld/Disneyland is a great family vacation! Love your Mickeys
Taz, I love them!
Where are the creative cookie bakers of this month ? Please post some of your vacation themed cookies.
As for the next month's theme... I was thinking about this:
Using cookie cutters for another design that it was made for.
For example, making a butterfly in a flower cookie. Sometimes we get frustrated because we don't have a specific cutter, but we can use what we have and do awesome things. For how many designs do you use a cutter that you have? Or maybe, give some use to that seasonal cutter throughout the year.
I post this early because I'll be out for a few days from next week.
Please, feel free to make comments
I'm going to post! I promise. I just keep getting orders - which is awesome! I already have my vacation theme picked out. I'm going to cut them out tomorrow and then I have to do a cake on Friday. So, I'm hoping I'll have time to decorate Friday or Saturday. I'm so excited about my theme. It is somewhere I've always wanted to go - hopefully next year.
Oh, and I love the idea for next month.
I'm in! Making these cookies this week has given me a newfound urge to decorate more...Taz, I think you'll like mine as all our vacations seem to be on "La Isla del Encanto"...
Here are the cookies for this month....Family Vacation could be the zoo or a safari for the adventerous or Disney's Animal Kingdom (is that the name of it?) These are done in buttercream. I forgot that the colors deepen with buttercream, so they got much darker than I had planned, but I still think they turned out okay. I am making the cake for them to go on today.
GREAT cookies, freddyfl!
I'm cutting them out right now - I'm gonna make it by the end of May! I'm gonna make it! haha
great job Freddyfl - they are all so cute!
Those jungle animals are so cute! And the Mickey's look great!
My household came down with the Stomach flu -
So, my vacation cookies will have to wait - now I have to work on the paid gigs. Oh well, I'll stick them in the freezer for a rainy day.
didn't make it for may (the only vacation we'd been on is camping) but i ran out of time-it's been a bit hectic around here (apart from baking, cleaning, kids, ect...) i can't believe it's june already (and it's freezing here in ontario!) i've got some great ideas for june though (if that's what we're using) i hope i can make it in time lol
I am making some tomorrow! I wish I had seen this thread sooner!
My vacation money went to the contractor, the septic man, and mainly to the plumber. Of course, we could have gone swimming in the pool under the house...
can you believe, i'm the one who came up with the theme, and i didn't even post. over the next week, i have about 600 cookies due. i'm not sure if i love grad season or hate it.... do we have a theme for this month???
duh...never mind i found the theme
