I just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone who helped me with all my questions in the forums, pm's, picture comments, and tutorials! I like to make sure I have it completely straight in my head before I attempt anything. I finally did my first decorated cookie, NFSC and Antonia74's RI. Together these two are delicious!
I had SO much fun making these cookies, so much more enjoyable and relaxing than doing cakes! I started taking the Michael's Cake Decorating course almost 2 months ago, and I like it, but I LOVE doing these cookies!
Anyway, enough of that. Thanks everyone! I posted a pic of my first cookie.
Sounds like you got bitten by the cookie bug too!
Totally bitten! I started coming on this site for cake ideas. I didn't even touch the cookie forum for the first bit. Now I'm completely hooked!
They're so pretty! Can I please ask how you managed to get the yellow sugar JUST in the center and not all over the purple frosting?
Sure! Basically I did the purple flood first, then 2 hours later, when the top was definitely dry I did the yellow flood and put the sprinkles on, a lot of sprinkles, right after I flooded each yellow. Then 30 min later I quickly tilted them to get the excess sprinkles off. Because the top of the purple was already dry I didn't have to worry about the sprinkles sticking to it. Hope that helps!
Awww, your cookies turned out great!! I, too, have learned so much from this site. I love making both cookies and cakes - and can now make stuff I would have never thought! These folks are so clever!
Congratulations on your successful cookie decorating! They look wonderful!
Great job!!! I started by doing cakes, too, and even though I like it I am totally hooked on cookies now!! Your cookies look fabulous!
