I have to admit......I tend to only show you my best side. Who wouldn't? With complete control over which words are written....and which photos are shown on a blog, why would anyone show their "less than perfect (ha!)" side.
Well.....contrary to the words and images here that may give you the impression that every cookie I touch turns out OK.....you must know that there are plenty I don't show you. So forgive me for making you think I've got this cookie decorating thing all together. I do not. I work hard.....make lots of cookies, have learned LOTS.....but I certainly don't have success in all the cookies I do.
To prove it to you.....I'll show you my attempt of the gopher in the movie "Caddyshack". (Note to self: Just because you have a photo of an image doesn't mean you can recreate it on a cookie......even with a KopyKake!)
So here's the image I was given for reference. (I'm showing you this so that hopefully you can see a little similarity. lol)
And here's my attempt. I'm CRINGING as I'm downloading this. Please don't laugh!
All I can say is I've learned a lot from these cookies......what NOT to do.....and even what TO do. The main thing I learned is not to try to emulate a actual photo of an animal or person. This shows how much I am NOT an artist. As I've heard Callye say in the past, and I believe about myself.....I'm a replicator........but only of drawings and clipart. ;)
So.........to try to save face, I'll show you one of my better cookies from the golf set. I did these golf carts two years ago.....but I think I improved them quite a bit.
Here's the golf cart from 2009 (sorry for the not-so-good photo):
And here's the 2011 version:
OK....I think I've stopped cringing now. :)
