Okay so lets try something really fun! We have found each other through Facebook or Blogging because of a common interest in decorating cookies. How many of us "cookiers" wish that we lived close to each other to bake together, chat together and you know it, to share our cookie decorating obsession together! Well here's our chance...
I am proposing a COOKIE CHALLENGE. Lets work on a project together! The theme of this first cookie challenge will be HELLO KITTY. For those that want to play along, all you have to do is make Hello Kitty cookies this week. When your cookies are ready (anytime this week), post them on your Facebook page and tag me (@Cristin's Cookies) so that I can see your creations too. On Friday, August 19th, I will post some of the pictures of your cookies on my blog with credit to you. We will have our own virtual Hello Kitty party this week!
I know a lot of you have recently purchased a Hello Kitty cookie cutter. For those that haven't, there are several places that are selling them now, including CopperGifts.com. For those that haven't purchased a Hello Kitty cookie cutter, YOU CAN STILL PLAY ALONG!
I have created two 4" images below. Please feel free to size them to whatever size works for you. You can print the image and laminate it or use clear heavy duty tape or whatever works for you to use the image to hand-cut your cookies. You can also Google Hello Kitty and come up with tons of other designs. You can also use a regular cat head and add a bow. Be creative however you wish.
So start baking and share your designs and have fun! This is NOT a contest. There is no pressure, it's simply to have fun together so don't leave me hanging. Join in the fun! I've invited 2 little girls over to my house to be my baking assistants on Monday. They are very excited to make their very own Hello Kitty cookies. Click on the images below to print them out for your use.
If you have any questions, contact me. Have fun baking! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
