Alice in Wonderland Cookie Challenge

This was my entry for "4 the Love of Cake" Alice in Wonderland Cookie Challenge. It was held on flickr, which is a photosharing stream. There are hundreds of different "groups" on a multitude of topics, and this is but one of them. It was my first attempt at a cookie challenge, and it did not turn out exactly as I had wanted. I was rushed to finish it on time. I posted my finished cookie with only 7 minutes to spare before the deadline! Believe it or not, it came out First! I was shocked! The voting was done by the members who belong to the group "4 the Love of Cake". Thanks to all who voted for my cookie.

Hayden's Cookie

My baby boy's masterpiece! My soon-to-be 3 year old wanted to try his hand at cookie decorating like Mommy does! He couldn't wait for me to get the camera before taking a bite!
After this picture was taken he decided he needed to do more decorating and added big globs of black icing right on top!
The colors he chose....green like "Percy", orange like "Rusty", and yellow like "Duncan".....in reference to Thomas the Tank Engine characters. All colors and numbers revolve around his Thomas friends!
He was so proud of himself!!!

Can't wait for that first cold front of Fall!
These made me forget about the heat and humidity for just a little while.
Fall's still a good month, month1/2 away!
I made these for the fall bouquet I did for my mom's birthday.

Part of the collection for my mom's bouquet. I tried something different this time by adding leaves to the bouquet. I like the look it gives.
The bee on the sunflower was done to cover up a large indentation that appeared the next morning after I decorated it! No one knows how it got there! I think the bee covered it up quite nicely!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Longing for the cool, crisp, refreshing air of fall inspired me to do this bouquet for my mom's birthday which she celebrates exactly one week after my dad. She enjoys feeding her birds and providing them shelter, so I threw in the birdhouse to the mix. This was the first time I tried a chocolate cookie dough and was quite pleased with the results. I also liked the dark cookies against the fall colors. It adds a richness to the cookies.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

I made these for my dad's 70th birthday. He's retired and spends most of his time at
his " fishing camp" as we call them here in Louisiana. Most people not from here call them summer homes. He enjoys fishing, crabbing, trawling for shrimp and all things having to do with seafood in La! I did a replica of his boat , the "Double Dip, crab traps, cast nets, and seafood. I'm not really thrilled with the crabs....I wanted to try something other than red, but I'm not to pleased with the way they turned out.
That's him in the center, he's a huge LSU fan as are most people from Louisiana. Go Tigers!

The crab, shrimp, and redfish that were part of the cookie tray for Paw's 70th birthday.
I wanted to do something other than a "boiled" red crab, so I tried the greens and blues of the crab befor it gets "cooked". I'm not sure that I like the way it turned out. It was an experiment!

Happy Birthday Carly!
