I must say, I always thought cookies were going to be really easy and cakes needed more attention so i always focused on them but now, cookies are really starting to get on my last nerve!!
I need to buy some patience...redbull maybe?!

chocaholikk:  a case of 'em.  There are some cookie decorators posting photos of their decorated cookies that are simply amazing.  Nerves of steel and talent!!

The first time I saw a professional decorated sugar cookie was a decade ago in the People magazine.

The gal was charging $10.00 a cookie.     She earned every penny of that $$.

my one cookie saving grace is stencils.  They are the easiest way for a no-talent non-artist like me.

Thanks Sarge !  But It is much easier to Pour from the big bucket than to hand pipe with those tiny tips.   and again KUDOS to YOU for your tutorial on Petit Fours.

 

roll out sugar cookies, Royal Icing with Royal Icing stenciling  stencil    vs.

free hand piping

 

arggghhhhh.   piping will be my 'white whale' that I pursue with a vengeance, for sure..

I love that mug cookie.   Where did you get the cutter?  Stencils are so pretty.   I have only done a couple stencil cookies...but call me psycho...just like the PT4s...I really like decorating cookies!

copper gifts .com   actually I find myself looking at their website for an hour once I get there and start looking at cutters.  The best part of their website is that they show examples of decorated cookies for most of the cutters.  Sometimes they have 2 or 6 examples.

 

Ok I'll admit it, I can't pipe for crap, but I have dozens,  a hundred , over a hundred cookie cutters.

I'm just crazy about the cutters. I'm turning into a collector.

 

did these years ago, I'm sure I could do much better today, but these are from the big copper cutters also.

chocaholikk:    me!  but the funny thing is that not everyone will take a piece of cake, but almost everyone will take a cookie.  So it's a nice thing to make for people.

 

ps:  if you haven't seen these cookies from Geminirj your missing a truly joyful experience. I hope it's acceptable to link to this awesome photo page............

MBalaska, aren't you the sweetest? So glad you like my cookies! I really like those beer mug cookies of yours!!! I haven't had much luck for quite a while posting photos here (I think my computer is the problem. Or it could be operator error....) But I gave up after a while, and just post on Flickr.

 

chocaholikk, it's really true that practice makes perfect! I know I'm far from it, but cookie decorating is my therapy, so I keep practicing. Don't give up!

I just tried this recipe on Halloween
http://cakecentral.com/a/no-fail-sugar-cookies
And my cookies came out amazing! I didn't even want to frost them! It was my first time making sugar cookies from scratch so I was really surprised. I used the almond extract and took some advice from another forum to take them out of the oven when the cookies lose their shine! 6 minutes in my oven perfect every time! Soft and delicious!

BTW ddaigle:  if you're looking for something special, unique,

or needing a custom made cookie cutter just for your business,  these folks have made some really nice ones.

 

It's where I got my best polar/grizzly/black 'bear' cookie cutters and the rifle cookie cutter.

(as I said I'm a cookie cutter collector fanatic, and I love making cookies for people)

Wow..MB... Their cutters are amazing.. . I also have hundreds of cutters but that's because I bought them for a dollar. Lol

I only have a couple copper ones that I got at Copper gifts.

Thanks for sharing that link.
