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.


Happy baking!

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 icon_surprised.gif It really couldn't be more perfect. Your Darth Vaders look fantastic thumbs_up.gif

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....

An acorn is a baby tree....
But also can be a baby-with-a-pacifier, as you can see!

This cookie cutter is a chalice,
but it also makes a pretty dress.

endymion Posted 7 Jun 2009 , 4:30am

This ice cream cone cutter
also makes a nice Christmas elf.

No snow showers, this time of year?
Never fear!
This snowman cutter works for baby showers, too.

If you poured water into a "10 gallon" cowboy hat,
Would it make a good froggie habitat?

andpotts Posted 7 Jun 2009 , 5:41am

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!

kneadacookie Posted 7 Jun 2009 , 10:37pm

what an amazing start!!! what wonderful ideas. i'm going to have to use a couple. i love the rattle

ZlatkaT Posted 7 Jun 2009 , 10:54pm

endymion,
you are so awesome and creative. I rock my head to come up with something too.

endymion Posted 8 Jun 2009 , 2:28am

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!)

sarah0418 Posted 8 Jun 2009 , 2:34am

Mine will be coming in a few days....I am using my daisy cutter to make a lion's head.......

cindy58 Posted 8 Jun 2009 , 11:43am

endymion, your cookies and ideas are great!

GeminiRJ Posted 8 Jun 2009 , 12:32pm

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!

michellesArt Posted 8 Jun 2009 , 12:43pm

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

Taz-from-PR Posted 8 Jun 2009 , 2:54pm

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 icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

bonniebakes Posted 8 Jun 2009 , 9:04pm

WOW - what creativity! Endymom and Andpotts - you rock!!

And... Andpotts - it's your turn to pick the theme for the month of July!

Bellatheball Posted 9 Jun 2009 , 1:47am

Those Vader cookies are pure genuis. Mine isn't a huge leap but...

Bellatheball Posted 9 Jun 2009 , 1:50am

Grrr...why can't I ever get photos to post?
LL

Bellatheball Posted 9 Jun 2009 , 1:52am

And another (these were when I just started icon_redface.gif )
LL

Bellatheball Posted 9 Jun 2009 , 1:55am

Another one that's sort of different than the intended use. The one above was a heart cutter with the point cut off. Not terribly original though. icon_smile.gif
LL

bonniebakes Posted 9 Jun 2009 , 12:18pm

bellatheball - love them! I especially love the grass skirts/hula ones... they made me smile!

JGMB Posted 9 Jun 2009 , 12:29pm

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? icon_wink.gif My favorite so far is the baby with pacifier. Keep the photos coming, please!

Bellatheball Posted 9 Jun 2009 , 5:22pm

Thanks Bonnie. They're nowhere near as creative as endymion's but hopefully they spark an idea for someone.
