Pixar UP Cookies

My daughter's birthday is coming up next week but she will be in away in Church camp and hence won't be celebrating with us. This is the first year she's away from home on her birthday. So i made her some birthday cookies of her fave cartoon characters for her to bring to camp.   I spent 2 days piping these...so tiring!!  My arm going to drop off already...  I thought i could finish in a day but i couldn't.. hence i didn't have time to bake this week's HCB assignment :(.

Overall, I'm happy with how the UP cookies turned out.  However, I still need to improve on the fine detail piping skill which i am lacking in (as what Chef Michel Roux Jr, judge of MasterChef-Pro always say "lacking the finesse...") I guess practice makes perfect but cooking decorating is extremely time consuming imo..and sometimes (actually, more like most of the time) i'm quite lazy to get my butt moving..:p !

What a great mom you are! I am sure the cookies made her the most popular kid at the camp.

Has it been a year already? You baked her a Venetian cake last year?

What a going away present for your daughter, and you are right the piping of these must have been a nightmare! But, oh so worth it, because they look fab! And I bet they taste just as good.

Faithy, like I said, you're VERY good enough! Perhaps, you're such a perfectionist! You're being too harsh on yourself, I think.

With that much time and effort put in, I'm sure your daughter and all her other camp mates will sure enjoy the cookies and appreciate your good intention! To share is a good virtue. =)

Have a beautiful weekend! Take plenty of rest!

These are so awesome - that bird up on the roof with the balloons - I almost died laughing. They are all so cute and creative. A lot of work though for you. The cake looked like it was really tasty and colorful too.

Hi, Faithy!
My name is Francine and I'm a brazilian cake designer.
I've really liked your work with cakes and cookies.
