The "Once Upon A Time" Project

This month I had the privilege of joining Anne Yorks from Flour Box Bakery who organized "Once Upon A Time" decorating project that included 22 cookie designers. Each designer was assigned a character to create a collection around their given character. I strongly encourage you to view other Amazing Designs created by Oh Sugar Events, Life's a Batch, Color Me Cookie, MT Lookout Sweets, TheRedCooky, Laura's Cookies, Flour Box Bakery, The Hungry Hippopotamus, SweetArt Sweets, Sweet Hope Cookies, Sweet Creations, Lorraine's Cookies, Cupookie, The Cookie Countess, Songbird Sweets, Palestine Painted Cookie, Arty McGoo, Sweet-T-Cakes, Sweet Sugarbelle, Cookies with Character and LilaLoa. Their creativity was mind-blowing and their designs just incredible! Go to Flour Box Bakery and see the designer/character assignments with links to their pages to view their own descriptions.

Once Upon A Time "Dorothy"

My character was Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. My first thought was that I had an easy character, but then realized with Dorothy you also have a dog, tin-man, scarecrow and lion too! Toto was easy, and for the 3 sidekicks I used a teddy bear cutter using Silver luster dust to paint the tin man. For Dorothy I decided to use a "hanging baby" but gave her the braids and shoes that she was known to wear with the blue gingham from her dress on the wrap. The other elements I wanted to include were the "Yellow Brick Road", red shoes and poppies. The yellow brick "blanket" was a towel cutter and the shoes were an oval cutter. Red disco dust was perfect for the shoes and accent frame. Still not a fan because of the mess, but it did make them sparkle!

My characters were fun to create but I strongly encourage you to visit the other designers listed above to view their interpretations of their "baby" characters. You will be AMAZED at the elements they were able to include in their designs. And a BIG Thank You to Anne Yorks who pulled us all together on this project...TOO MUCH FUN!!!
