The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

I am very excited to be participating in this:
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2011

I just found out about it today and am already wondering what cookies I should make for the people I get. Here are some ideas I've found recently on Pinterest (anyone else obsessed?!):

Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Umm...these look ridiculous.

Oh, how I love all these beautiful photos with their beautiful editing. One day I will take pictures just like that when I grow a money tree and can buy a fancy camera and a kitchen with lots of natural light :)

I love Pinterest because I've always made picture collages of things I like, and held onto them for years. I journaled a LOT growing up and used more scotch tape than Martha Stewart to make collages in my journals. It's fun when I look back at them and see the creativity of my younger years.

Sign up to participate here. The more the merrier!

What are your favorite holiday cookie recipes? Any suggestions?

Gum Paste and Fondant Decor

Just wanted to share a few of my other gum paste/fondant creations from my class. I liked this particular class because we didn't have to bring something to decorate every week - we just practiced making the decorations, so I wasn't stuffing my face with cake afterwards! :)

Fun stuff! These really aren't all that difficult to make, just time consuming...which is why I'll probably be sticking with the quick buttercream decorating for now :)
