Broken Bones

Some boys never grow up! They want to play football with the kids and end up hurt almost every time.  These are for you boys who can't stay on the sidelines no matter how clumsy you are or how many times you get hurt! And, of course, anyone you know who needs a little Cookie RX.

September Blog Giveaway

I've been toying with the idea of a giveaway for a while but couldn't decide how to do it. I'll try an easy, random selection the first time. The winner gets cookies in their theme choice in either:   

7 cookie arrangement OR 12 party favors  
(including shipping). 

2 ways to enter:
  1. Become a Facebook fan of Cookie Capers.  Then return to this post and leave me a comment telling me that you did so. (If you are already a Facebook fan, encourage your friends on FB to become fans and let me know how you did it.)  
  2. Put up a link about the September Blog Giveaway through your Facebook, Twitter or Blog.  Return to this post leaving me a comment on how you shared the news of the give-away with others.
      In a nutshell, you can enter up to 2 times.  Once, by becoming a fan of Cookie Capers on Facebook or sharing the Cookie Capers Page with your friends on Facebook. AND secondly, by posting a link to this contest on your Facebook, Twitter or Blog.  Easy, right?

    You MUST leave your email address or some other contact information with your comment in order to enter the blog give-away. Make sure each entry is a separate comment so both entries count.

    The giveaway is open to anyone who enters in either or both of the above ways so tell all your friends. Entries will ONLY be accepted as comments left on the September Blog Giveaway post. Comments on any other blog post or Facebook page will not enter you into the give-away.

    Each person is only allowed TWO entries in the giveaway (as outlined above).
    The acceptance of entries ends at midnight (CST), Thursday, September 29, 2011

    The winner will be announced September 30, 2011.

    I will use random.org to choose the winner.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

These cookies are, hands down, my very favorite in all the years I've done cookies!  The challenge was getting the shapes exactly like the book when I only have 4 out of the 16 shapes that would work. I traced, cut out, laminated the shapes (for cleanliness), then placed them on dough and cut out with an exacto knife. I used an icing tip to make the holes.  But all the work up front was totally worth it for the results!
The goal was to have coloring very similar to the book.
