Cupcake Cookie Cutter Challenge

Who says your cupcake cookie cutter is just for cupcakes? Well the list of ladies joining in with Pam, from CookieCrazie, have some amazing ideas for you.  Did you know that Pam worked with Karen’s Cookies to develop a few of her own cookie cutters?  These are not just any ordinary cookie cutters either.  The proceeds from the sale of the cupcake cookie cutter and the homespun christmas tree cutter go towards the mission effort in the Ukraine.  If you would like to read more about the missionary efforts in the Ukraine pop over to this link: {Making a Difference}

Here are the links to the cutters if you are interested in buying one:

Cupcake Cookie Cutter Challenge: Bride’s Bouquet

Cupcake Cookie Cutter

Originally when I first saw this cutter, I saw a bushel of asparagus or better yet Jr. asparagus from the Veggie Tales. I tried to make it work but just ended up frustrated. But then it hit me, this could be a bride’s bouquet. I love stumbling upon something you have never seen before. Without this cupcake cookie cutter challenge, I can guarantee you I would have never thought to make a bouquet of flowers out of the cutter. In the picture above, I did tiny ribbon roses in three shades of pink to give it depth. But you can also use different tips to make different royal icing flowers to change-up your bouquet.

 Sugarbelle has a great tutorial on how to make these simple royal icing swirl roses.

I am so excited because now I have a “new” flower bouquet cutter that I never knew I owned!

It was fun to realize I could use this for weddings, Valentine’s Day cookies or if I just wanted to send a friend flowers.

I am blessed to have an intern who has been working for me since the summer.

I decided to give her a cookie cutter brain teaser.

 It was so fun to have her join in on this project too.

Don’t you love what she created?

How fun, a bathtub full of bubbles and a little rubber ducky?

The list of ideas that she came up were quite inspiring, but the bathtub was my favorite.

Oh, but we are not done yet! Wait till you see what these amazingly talented women designed.

I love cookie cutter challenges. It is always so fun for me to see what everyone creates. I mean seriously, how cute are all of these? Heather, brings on a whole new meaning to, “you need to eat your veggies.” I am sure many kids around the country would like that type of broccoli. So much creativity. You will never think of a cupcake cookie cutter quite the same. I know I won’t.  I am always amazed at what everyone sees through their eyes. Little did I know,  I now  the proud owner of a flower-pot, beehive, 60′s groovy cookie cutter, a birdcage and a new Thanksgiving turkey cutter.  Who knew, right? Stop by these other talented cookie artists and tell them how much you love their creations. What do you see when you look at the cupcake cookie cutter?

    In the early 19th century, there were two different uses for the name cup cake or cupcake. In previous centuries, before muffin tins were widely available, the cakes were often baked in individual pottery cups, ramekins, or molds and took their name from the cups they were baked in. This is the use of the name that has remained, and the name of “cupcake” is now given to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup.^*

    I could totally lick my screen right now.

    I am not a baker, but I can totally see this making a good cutter for a coffee drink (with whip) or upside down for an old-man beard. Or at an angle for an asteroid! So many amazing ideas, you guys are awesome. =)

    Your bouquets are gorgeous Melissa and your interns bubble bath is just adorable.

  5. donna @ theslowroasteditalian

    Oh Melissa, these are fabulous. I love your bouquet and your interns bubble bath is so fun. I have to admit I have a thing for that “groovy” cookie. What can I say, I am a child of the 80′s, I dig big hair! :)

  6. Heather @ SugarNosh Treats

    I love the way you think…it is like having a bunch of new cutters! Your bouquet is stunning but I have to say I’m especially relieved to know that you saw a cupcake masquerading as a vegetable too. Almost makes me feel a little less weird…almost ;)
    Such a fun collaboration with so many talented cookiers. Love it.

  7. Laurie

    What a beautiful bouquet! I am excited that I, too, now have a bouquet cutter!! :) Your work is always beautiful and I’m always so excited to see what your creative brain comes up with!

  8. Nancy Paine

    Melissa, SO gorgeous! Love your idea, and how it turned out! Guess what? I also made a bubble bath cookie, with a baby in it! I will post it on Flickr today, I am under Snowflakelady.

  9. Whisked Away Cookies

  10. Michelle

    You’re the BEST, Melissa. I love how you pulled this blog post together. It covers everything and is full excitement. And thanks for helping me promote my Ukraine mission effort. I appreciate it so much!

    Haha…..when you wrote me this morning that I’d given you 13 new cookie cutters, I was confused. But now I get it. haha You’re right……we are loaded with a new arsenal. How awesome is that?!

    I’m so THRILLED that we’ve gotten connected these last few months. You’re quickly becoming a very dear friend. God is very very good to us. :)

    Oh……and I LOVE that wedding bouquet. Wow……it is so gorgeous. I can’t wait to try out my new wedding bouquet cutter. ;)

    ♥♥♥
