I was wondering the same thing. But, of course, I haven't found the time to make anything, either. And, darn if September isn't a short month! Maybe I can find time tomorrow. I hope other people do, too!

I just discovered this thread, and am really looking forward to joining in soon.

When does October's theme get posted? I'll be watching for it.
Thanks, and happy baking everyone!

I've been doing a lot of chocolate work lately and the cookies I've done are fashion oriented, not the theme of the month. I was hoping to see other cookies from the gang! icon_biggrin.gif

The October theme will be posted on the 1st. I'll start a new thread with the theme, and put a link to it in this one.

Thanks Bonnie!
my new cutters and squeeze bottles are slated to arrive today! So, after Cake Camp this weekend, I'll be ready to start cookie-ing!

I went to decorate the cookie I had stored for this...and found it broken. icon_cry.gif

If I had dough stored away I would've pulled it out and baked another one or two but I don't. I've been having cake requests coming lately!

Ah well, there's always October!

Darn! I had some ideas for this month, but then I made a commitment to donate 650 cookies and I am too swamped with that project to do these "for fun" ones.

I'll share my ideas in case anyone wants to try them. I was planning to make chocolate cookie dough, and try to make:

1. A hopscotch diagram (with powdered sugar lines so it would look kind of like chalk marks),

2. Jacks (with dragees as the round parts and a semi-3-D ball that protruded from the cookie), and

3. A cookie stack that looked like a Rubik's cube: 3 square sandwich cookies with edges iced to be flat surfaces... and edges decorated with colorful fondant squares. I was going to stack two sandwich cookies straight on top of each other, and then the third (top) one at an angle, so it looks like one layer of the Rubik's cube was being "turned". The top of the top cookie would also be decorated with the colorful fondant squares.

4. One of those wind-up toy monkeys with the cymbals in its hands.

Hopefully, I'll have time to do next month's theme! I'm really bummed that I did not have time to participate this month. It was a great theme!

Those were all terrific ideas, I wish we could've seen them! Can I just ask who you donated all of the cookies to? I love the warm and fuzzy feeling I get when I hear about CCers doing good works for others!

that's soo funny! Those were my first 2 thoughts 9but not those methods, of course)! I made both, but wasn't happy with how either turned out, then had the candyland game idea.

Do them anyway!!! I don't think anyone will mind if it's posted a tad late! icon_biggrin.gif

Love the hopscotch idea!
Maybe a cross cookies made to look like a hopscotch! I may have to try it on a "non Nutrition day ". Who doesn't think a cookie is nutritious? icon_smile.gif I can't even spell it! icon_smile.gif

Great minds must think alike, huh, Bonnie? icon_wink.gif

Maybe I will try to make them later; we'll see.

The cookies are a donation for my son's school.

I had to Google zaxapoaphobia, and was linked back to an old Cake Central Cookie Club thread. Too funny!

I had so-o-o wanted to make a cookie for this month....and last! But life keeps getting in the way! Overtime at work and an ulcerated esophogus took all my cookie mojo away......

Okay, so I finally got a chance to make some of these cookies (quick versions! very short on time....) The hopscotch thingdid not work out, but here are the Rubik's cube and the jacks.
