The last time I donated cookies there was a project runway contestant that was a guest speaker. So I made designer dresses that were super fun. I mean serious cuteness.
Well this year the theme was Paris.....and I didn't exactly feel like doing fashion again (not that I don't love doing fashion cookies...I would do them all day long!!) Something about Paris was speaking to me.... the romance of it. The history, decadence and beauty of old Europe....and ya know...all the girly stuff I could get away with.
So this years auction had these:
I'm not going to lie when I say I LOVE THEM. I know...doting on myself...but I haven't made cookies in like 6 months and this was my first run back...and it clicked. I was so afraid it wasn't!!
I threw it all at it. Airbrushing, hand painting, gold, edible crystals, ribbon roses, stenciling, a little disco dust (wish you could see it on the chandelier...it's beautiful)....
These are more of art piece cookies.
Speaking of stencils, I got all my stencils for this project from The Cookie Countess's Etsy Shop. All I can tell you is how impressed I am with her work, her designs are gorgeous, her work is flawless, she got them to me super fast and I ADORE them!! ( And her too)
Ah Paris....I've never been there. Always wanted to, but wanted to go as maybe a Canadian.....so they will forgive my horrible french and perhaps overlook my slightly southern accent (of which isn't actually as thick as it could be ya know).
I guess I'm intimidated by the French...they all seem so......foreign.....to a southern gal like me.
I never actually know how the cookies go off at the auction. No one ever tells me. But I hope they made a bit of cash for the charity and helped out a great cause.
On another note tho....Ali is BACK BABY!!!
