Let me just say that character cookies are not my favorite cookies to make. I find them to be very challenging and I tend to stay away from them. Characters are well know icons. If you do not get their features just right it will be blatantly obvious. I currently do not take orders but back when I was I always feared the character request. You can see the few character cookies I made here.
I made this set of Mickey cookies with my cousin in mind. Her son Isaac is celebrating his birthday this month and he loves Mickey.
All I can say is that without my Kopykake these cookies would not be possible. Many decorators do not use Kopykake's because they are just super talented artists but when it comes to cookies that require detail mine is my best friend. I cannot draw to save my life. I'm pretty pleased with my first Mickey cookies. I know now how to approach designing him so next time around I think he'll be better.
I hope that you will hop on over to Cristin's blog and check out the other Mickey cookies being created. Also, be sure to check out Cristin's work. She decorates more cookies than anyone I know. When she decorates she goes all out. She doesn't just make one or two designs. She makes tons of designs for each theme. I don't know how she does it. It must be all the bike riding she does that gives her the energy. Perhaps I need to take up bike riding. :-)
