Cheerleaders and Flip January?

A good friend asked me if I'd be willing to make some cookies for her to take to some special friends.  Of course, I said yes....but then she said she wanted cheerleaders.  Uh oh.  I wasn't sure I'd be able to make cheerleaders!  Flickr to the rescue.....honestly I don't know what I'd do without the inspiration from the talented bakers and decorators who willingly post their unique creations for others to review.  I can sometimes closely replicate a design, but designing from NOTHING is really, really hard for me.  

The inspiration for the cheerleaders came from Sugar Deaux.

I'd made flip flops before, but again, went to Flickr to get inspiration.  This time, by Montreal Confections.

I was pleased enough with what I did, but I have to learn more PATIENCE when it comes to decorating cookies....I don't wait long sometimes between colors.   Anyone else have that problem?  I get so excited to see the "final product" that I sometimes sabotage my own efforts.

Thanks Debra, for letting me make these for you and your friends.  I hope the girls really enjoy them!


  1. Christine...those flip flops are out of control amazing. I love them!

  2. Wow. Those cheerleaders are great! I love how you did the hair on them!
