COOKIE CONTEST with big fun prizes

I am SO EXCITED to share my big news with you today. I am hosting a contest! And not just any contest, it's a --

CREATIVE COOKIE DECORATING CONTEST!!!


Here's what you have to do -- Bake a cookie using this cutter. If you don't have this cutter, that's okay, just print out this high-tech sharpie version (or trace it right on your computer screen. It's the right size.)  and then hand cut a cookie or four. And then decorate that cookie to look like anything except a present. That's it. Easy peasy. You can cut off parts of it if you want, or add pieces if you need to. Just make sure that we can tell it came from the present cutter to begin with.

Before you start telling yourself you won't enter because you can't win --- there is more than one way to win. Stay with me.

The cookies will be judged by a panel of judges. One of them is my mom, so no dirty words, okay? The judges come from backgrounds in graphic design, party planning, sculpture, and pastry arts. They will be independently scoring your cookies in two areas -- Creativity and Overall Appearance. The creativity score will make up 75% of your final score. That means that even if you just started decorating -- YOU CAN STILL WIN.

Also, voting will be enabled on this link-up and there will be a "People's Choice" prize that will go to the cookie with the most votes.

ALSO -- I had 10 ideas for this cutter. I used ONE of them when I made the strawberry cookies last week. If any of you come up with one of my other 9 ideas....YOU WIN a prize as well.

Seriously, I'm all over these prizes and giving them and...loving a happy day that involves making creative cookies from a present cutter.
