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 It really couldn't be more perfect. Your Darth Vaders look fantastic
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? My favorite so far is the baby with pacifier. Keep the photos coming, please!
Thanks Bonnie. They're nowhere near as creative as endymion's but hopefully they spark an idea for someone.
