The theme, as chosen by Taz-from-PR is....
Making designs other than the intended shape with a specific cookie cutter/ 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 can't WAIT to see the cookies people come up with!!!!
oh i have a few in mind-i'm off "work" this weekend so i'll be a busy bee.have the kids funcarnival at school coming up-love that!!)\\
Wow! This sounds like a great idea!
I can't wait to try this one! I have a bunch of ideas... now I just need the time to bake and decorate! Maybe next week.... too many other projects that I'm working on this weekend.
Ooh I'm so excited, I can actually participate in this one. Been really busy and not able to hang out here nearly at all, but I have been baking and decorating like crazy. I feel kind of bad, like I'm cheating on cakes and cuppies, but I LOVE doing cookies!
Here's my entry, for my sons Star Wars Jedi Academy party I used a large bell shaped cutter to make Darth Vader helmet cookie favors. I can't wait to see what everyone else does!
andpotts - what an ingenious use of the bell cutter
Love the Darth Vaders! I've got a few...
Ekco sold the cookie cutter as a "diamond". But --faster than a speeding bullet! -- I saw through its Clark Kent disguise and saw that it was REALLY the symbol of the man of steel... (Or maybe a sailboat!)
Hmmmm.... attachment didn't work the first time. Trying again....
Oh my gosh endymion, your ideas are AWESOME! I have been asking and trying to compile an idea file for othe uses for cokie cutters, there have been some really good ones, but I haven't seen any of the ones you posted, so cool! Come on everybody, more, more!
what an amazing start!!! what wonderful ideas. i'm going to have to use a couple. i love the rattle
you are so awesome and creative. I rock my head to come up with something too.
Thanks, everyone! This was so much fun! I can't wait to see what others come up with... (and I am looking at my bell cutter and seeing Darth now!)
Mine will be coming in a few days....I am using my daisy cutter to make a lion's head.......
endymion, your cookies and ideas are great!
Wow, what awesome cookies! And here I thought it was clever of me to use an ice cream cone for a clown...never saw the elf possibility!
oh those are fantastic!! 'kay i was going to load up my bride/groom "heart" cookies but that seems obvious!! i do have a bbq chef apron that i cut out using an upsidedown onsie (i'll post once it's decorated) endymion LOVE those cookies-especially the rattle-i think i might have to get out my seasonal cutters lol
It seems that the imagination can REALLY go wild. I'm always curious about using cutters for something else. I will post some later... The ones posted here are AWESOME
WOW - what creativity! Endymom and Andpotts - you rock!!
And... Andpotts - it's your turn to pick the theme for the month of July!
Those Vader cookies are pure genuis. Mine isn't a huge leap but...
bellatheball - love them! I especially love the grass skirts/hula ones... they made me smile!
I love this thread!! You all are so creative, and I love the way endymion speaks in rhymes -- do you do that in real life, or just here on CC?
Thanks Bonnie. They're nowhere near as creative as endymion's but hopefully they spark an idea for someone.
