August Cookie Theme

post #1 of 165
Thread Starter 
August's Theme: Bugs

So remember, the group decided that all pictures must be new pictures (and new cookies). Meaning if you have a previous group of cookies already in your album (or in the forum) even if it depicts the theme you cannot use it. The idea of the monthly theme is to get our creative juices/new ideas flowing.

Use any medium to decorate your cookies. Fondant, royal icing, buttercream etc. The only stipulation is it has to be a medium used in cookie or cake decorating. So no play doh!!

Post pictures in this thread (Do not create a separate thread for your pics). Maximum of 3 pictures per person. You may however use graphics programs to create ONE collage of different pics/angles.

In your post please let us know which medium you used to decorate your Cookies. Also, if you could please let us know why you chose the design you did if the reason is not obvious. (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 relates to music).

Have fun being creative. Look forward to seeing all your work.

Once again thank you all for showing more interest in this little project than I expected.

And before I forget to mention it, Bonniebakes has offered to help out with our little group. So feel free to ask her any questions as well.

Edit:
I may have forgotten to post this here but it was in the cookie club thread. Please do not post monthly theme cookies to your personal album or cookie Gallery until after the monthly theme has expired. The reason for this is, as a group we all decided each picture must be new and not previously uploaded to the Galleries. Seeing that we have no way of knowing when pictures were uploaded this will help to prevent any squabbles about people using previously uploaded pictures.


I do apologize for overlooking this detail. I forgot to post it here, I guess I just assumed everyone read the original Cookie Club thread.

I had a feeling is was going to be bugs, so I saved a little dough from my beach cookies last week.

What better way to honor my 500th post and moving up a rank to a forum addict!

I promise I'll make more later this month, too. I already ahve a few other ideas I'd like to try.

Happy baking!!

THANKS everyone!!!!

I figured that since I procrastinated until the very last day of the month in July, I had better get started early in August!

Bonnie, love those bugs! The caterpillar is too cute. I have not seen that cutter. I love the smiles on the lady bugs.

Better put my thinking cap on quick!

Miss Spider! Great idea. I actually made a Miss Spider cake a few years ago. I will post pics in the gallery section when I get a chance. I was very proud of it.

you guys will laugh at this...

I took my set of bug cutters out to make cookies (of course, I have so many cutters that I don't keep them in thier origianl packaging, but in plastic tubs, separated by general category) - took out the snails, butterflies, lady bugs, caterpillars, bees, and this other one that I wasn't sure what it was. So I made some of each kind and even when the cookies were baked, I still coudn't figure out what that other one was.... I even showed my husband. He says "it doesn't look like a bug to me" and I think what does he know?!?! Of course it's a bug of some kind!

Finally, finally, the next morning all of the sudden it occurs to me..... it was a bunch of grapes!!!

No, it was a squashed bug cutter icon_lol.gif

Very nice job as always Bonnie.
