Fish Cookie Display
This was my entry in the Mid-Atlantic Cake Show (cookies) last weekend. Sugar cookies with royal icing and 3-d bodies and side fins.
Here's the last set of fish cookie favor designs that I made for a friend for her daughter's bat mitzvah. The octopi were for the little kids. They were a lot of fun to do, but took a long time. I made 180 total!! Thanks for looking!
These are 4 more of the cookie favor designs. The picutre at the top left of each pair is the centerpiece.
This picture shows 4 of the 11 types of fish cookies that I made for a friend as favors for her daughter's bat mitzvah. The pictures are in pairs - centerpiece and cookie favor to match (the top left pic. is the centerpiece).
Little Green Men
These are some little green men (aliens) and rocket ship cookies I made for a friend's son. His b-day party was at a space themed laser-tag place and he wanted rocket ships.
Dog Food Bowl
This dog food bowl was made for my petsittter. It is a 2-layer caramel rolo cake covered in fondant. The kibbles are caramel bits. It was my first time covering a cake with fondant, adn boy was it a learning experience!!
These are cookies for a lemonade stand fundraiser for costumes for a little girl's dance class. NFSC with roayl icing (flavored with lemon). Yellow sugar sprinkles for the rind.
Wisdom Teeth Cookies
these "wisdom" teeth were for a gril who had her 4 wisdom teeth pulled. They are NFSC with royal icing. Words of wisdom are written with edible markers.

Mid-Atlantic Competition Entry - Dresses
This is my entry for the competition (and March cookie club theme). Thanks, everyone, for your support and encouragement!!
I made this electric guitar cake for my husband's birthday yesterday (the bottom one is his actual guitar). It is a white chocolate macadamia cake frosted with buttercream. the neck is solid chocolate. The picture didn't come out very well - you can't see the details (knobs, etc) becasue they are black on black icing. But, it's the smoothest cake I've ever done (Thanks, Melvira!)!!
A littel girl I know had to have ear surgery (tubes) for the 6th time. She was really anxious so I gave her some ear cookies to help her feel better. No-Fails with royal icing. Any advice on how to make it look more like a 3-d ear? I had no idea what to do for shading...
Some snowmen cookies I made for a mid-winter treat. NFSC with royal icing. I had extra dough left over after my "ears."
More Christmas Clothes Cookies 2006
here are more of the 6 dozen clothes cookies for the dry cleaners to give out to customers for the holidays.
Chirstmas Clothes 2006 - Sweaters
For the second year in a row, I have made cookies as a give-away for a dry cleaning store. This year I made holiday sweaters in gingerbread and vanilla sugar cookies, decorated with royal icing. These are some of the 6 dozen sweaters, before they were packaged.
Girly Birthday Cake
The 11 year-old birhtday girl was having a "glamour" party. One layer of cake is chocolate, the other is vanilla. The nail polish, eye shadow, and lipstick are all fondant. The polish "spills" are buttercream. This was a fun one to do, but I can think of a lot I'd do differently next time.
Roller Coaster Birthday Cake
this cake was for a little boy who wants to design roller coasters when he grows up. The hills are hard candy (lollipop candy) that I shaped with molds. The tracks are royal icing. The cake is chocolate, chocolate fudge - yum!
Enchanted Book Of Fairy Tales
The magical world of fairy tales comes to life in this enchanted storybook, open to a map of "Fairy Tale Land" which shows the way to the Beast's Castle (complete with Mrs. Potts, Chip, and Lumiere), Prince Charming's Castle (with a pumpkin and mouse ready to serve), the Enchanted Forest (where the shoemaker, grandma, and Jack the live in the "Pig Brothers Estate Homes" neighborhood), Magic Lake (home of the Frog Prince and Swan Princess), and the Bear Cave (where the porridge is waiting to be eaten).
I made Karate ghee (sp?) cookies for a little boy who just took his promotion test to become a "camouflage with yellow stripe" belt.
Hot Dog Cake
This hot dog was for a BBQ where they were serving hot dogs, corn dogs, adn pretzel dogs. The "meat" is a chocolate-cinnamon jelly roll with peach filling (sounds strange, but was a really yummy combination) frosted in buttercream; the "bun" is a cinnamon spice pound cake, sliced in half. The mustard and ketchup are peach and raspberry preserves and the onion and relish are gum drops.
