I added the flower cookie as a last minute addition. I thought it might be nice to break up the monotony of the skulls a bit.
Here's a preview of what I'm entering. I wanted to do something really colorful and a bit complicated. It's kinda funny how I finally decided on my design. I spent hours Googling random things and getting ideas from my husband. I thought a deck of cards or some Dia de los Muertos skulls would be cool, but then my friend Becky posted a picture of her wedding hairpiece, which had peacock feathers. I really liked the colors on a peacock feather and chose to do that. But I started having second thoughts about it. Then, I was flipping through SugarBelle's Flickr stream the other weekend and I stumbled across some Dia de los Muertos cookies she'd made! Considering they were part of my original idea, I decide to chalk it up to the Big Man Upstairs as divine intervention and ran with it.
The one on the left is my favorite. I was really happy with how he came out!
I have to say, I am so thrilled with these guys. I really took my time in picking colors and trying to get everything just so. There were a few little kinks, but it adds character. I'm really hoping to at least get some good feedback, even if I don't win. But winning would be nice :o)
I'll be sure to take lots of pictures and post a recap of the show at the end of the weekend.
