Toile cookies

I love the color pink.  I love toile.  I really love PINK TOILE. The peaceful pastoral scenes filled with charming people, animals, and graceful trees, has me at hello.  Every time I am at Sweetology 101 blog I swoon over the background.   It may have been a crazy idea to attempt toile design cookies, but then I never claimed to be sane.

As you might imagine, its a little tricky.  A cookie is a bit unforgiving if you get a nose wrong or eyes out of alignment.  One slip of the tip can make a lovely lady look like Adolf Hitler - I speak from experience.  As I have mentioned before, I do not have a Kopy Kake.  My house is very small.  If I had one it would have to do double duty as an end table or night stand.

 I'm sort of happy with how they turned out.  The lady in top cookie looks a bit like Elly Patterson from the cartoon strip For Better or For Worse.  This was not on purpose. 

See what I mean?  After the pinks, I decided to use up some left over blue and brown.  Another color combo I love in toile.  This time I used a larger tip. 

Hmmmm.  Next attempt I will go back to the smaller tip, and I think adding some sort of border would be nice.   What are your favorite colors in toile?  Maybe I will try it out!

  18. Wow, these are awesome. You have a steady hand :-) I would love to make these, but it's way beyond my skills! Thanks for sharing and giving me the inspiration to try them at some point!

  19. Hi, I am at Trish's party for the first time and very late at getting to some of you. Sorry. I am so happy I stopped. Never have I seen cookies like this. Obviously you are artistic and yes that does look like Ellie from For Better or Worse, only 1 or 2 strips I read in the Sunday paper. Me, I am a purple girl. Never thought there was purple toile, but have seen it on a few blogs. Grape flavored purple writing! I would think this is a unique concept and you could start a business for parties and such. Very impressive. Blessings.

  20. You are super talented! I could never decorate them...they look amazing! Thank you for sharing.Blessings My Friend,

  21. You have some beautiful cookies here! I could not make these. I love the name of your blog too, it's obviously enchanted! Thanks for linking it up at Home Sweet Home!
