Hello cookie makers!

Those entries for last months theme were so cute!! As the first poster of Easter cookies from March, RedRoxx got to choose this months theme. And the theme for April 2011 isHot Stuff. That means that ANY cookies you make related to that theme fits. Have fun creating - and being creative!!!

Just to refresh your memory (and for any new members), here are the "guidelines" for the cookie club posts (based on Cake_Princess' original post from a few years ago):

*Anyone can join us any month they choose! We love to have new members! This isnt a contest, just a way to share ideas, be creative, and learn new things related to cookies!!

* The group consensus was that all pictures must be new pictures (and new cookies). Meaning if you have a previous pictures of cookies already in your album (or in the forum) even if it depicts the theme, please do not use them for your entry in the cookie club. The idea of the monthly theme is to get our creative juices/new ideas flowing.

* Please post pictures in this thread (Do not create a separate thread for your pictures). ** in cases where there are technical difficulties with the CC site, it is OK to post your pictures in your photos on CC and put the link in the thread.

* Please wait to post monthly theme cookies to your personal album/ cookie Gallery until after the monthly theme has expired (the end of the month). I know you are anxious for everyone to see your cookies in your album, but keeping the monthly theme creations in only the thread for the entire month helps to increase traffic to the cookie club thread, which will help to keep it going and hopefully get more people interested in taking part. When the month is over, please feel free to post as many pictures as you wish to the galleries. We do love to see pictures!! (** unless technical difficulties prohibit us from attaching pictures directly in the thread)

* Feel free to use any edible medium to decorate your cookies - fondant, royal icing, butter cream etc. The only stipulation is it has to be a medium used in cookie or cake decorating (so no play-doh!). In your post, please let us know about your creation the type of cookie, the medium you used to decorate your cookies, any techniques that you used, etc.

* The purpose of choosing a monthly theme is to have a central theme for everyone participating to follow in order to allow us an opportunity to be creative, try new things, and learn from each other. Please try to follow the monthly theme. If the design choice is not obvious, please let us know why you chose the design you did (for example, if the theme was Music and you made ghost cookies then let us know the connection. Ghost = Phantom and Phantom of the opera > music).

* The theme is chosen at the beginning of each month by the first person to post a picture the previous month. That person should PM Bonniebakes with your theme choice before the month is over so that the new thread can be started on the 1st of the month (or within a day or two from the 1st).

Happy Baking, everyone! I cant wait to see the results!!

Hi all. If I'm the first poster, I'd like to suggest butterflies for the April cookie club.

Hi mpetty! By "first poster", it means the one who puts up a photo of their hot-themed cookie first. If you do that, you'll get to choose May's theme. So, get baking!

I, myself, am trying to think how to incorporate a hot-flashing menopausal woman into a cookie! icon_wink.gif

Hi everyone,
Well since I was already working on cookies for my son's 4th birthday, I had some cookies to play around with. The 'spring' weather has been gross here in the northeast, so with yesterday being cold and rainy all I could think of was some "Hot cocoa". So here is my cookie!!

I can't wait to see what to see all the other cookie posts this month.

Here's my cookie. The back of a girl in a bikini. It's a shortbread cookie, decorated in Wilton icing from a store bought tube in read, and the black is some shimmery black icing gel.

Those are nice and fun cookies!! I love the way you work the fondant, I'm new at this decorated cookies thing and been trying to use fondant with cookies. Mine doesn't look smooth and clean like yours, is brittle, cracked and really difficult to handle. I don't know what am i doing wrong. However your cookies look amazing!!
