In over my head

Or i felt like I was. Cookies made for a cookie swap and sent to Jody from East Coast cookies

At the start a cookie swap seems like a great idea and definately on the recieving end it is, but when you are stuck for ideas and completely blocked for any cookie inspiration its a struggle, especially not knowing to much about the recipient.

These were a rather "out there theme" with inspiration from seeing Rumplestiltskin on the shrek movie the kids were watching, as I was quietly moaning woe is me what will I do. It was like teh lightbulb went on and I thought what a great cookie he would make! I did know Jody had kids so went with the shrek theme with some wee cookies to share with her kidlets. She had originally put surprise as a theme but later said maybe valentines which by then was too late, but then Shrek has only ever been about True Love...grasping at straws?...I think not haha!

Fondant covered cookies, some handcut and painted or dusted for contrast and features. Gingeys faces were stippled to simulate gingerbread anyone still awake after this very long winded babble? Have a great week all
