Today several cookie decorators are doing a link-up party over at Cristin’s Cookies. I am super excited to participate in my first challenge. The theme of the challenge is Mickey Mouse. Cristin chose this theme because they are celebrating her son’s 18th birthday at Disneyland. Very exciting! I’ve been to Disneyworld once many years ago and it was quite the experience. We only spent a few days there and there is so much that I did not get to see. I would love to go back again or go to Disneyland.
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.
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.

Thanks for stopping by.
