Mystery Cookie Cutter Challenge RESULTS

Are you ready to see the mystery cutter results? I'm so excited to show you what everyone came up with! I created a new cookie cutter and decided to make it a mystery cutter challenge for fun. I didn't tell anyone what the cutter was meant to be and everyone made their own design. I love all the wonderful and creative designs everyone came up with! Make sure to stop by their pages and enjoy their cookie photos. Below the collage I'll share my cookie photos and of course you want to know why I made the design that I made...

So I made my cookie into a zebra:
 Why? Yep, you guessed it... that little Abigail inspired my Zebra...
I started with the Zebra cookie cutter. As you've seen above, it can also be decorated as a giraffe and a dinosaur and a horse and even a boot. Yes, I'll share. You can get your own pink cookie cutter HERE
 Then I baked my cookies with my new cookie cutter
 and I outlined my design. At this point you could make it into several design options.
I added nice thick stripes for my Zebra.
Then I filled her in with the colors that match Abigail's outfit. While the icing was wet, I added a flower detail and the tiny heart in her ear and the hearts on her tail. Then I let her dry overnight. The next morning I used an edible pen to draw on the pink stitching and the eyelashes.
Then I made her a bunch of friends so that she wouldn't get lonely.
Then I dressed her up for Valentines Day. 
 and with Valentines colored stripes too with a big heart that says I Only Have STRIPES For You! and smaller hearts with zebra print on them. You know, I just couldn't resist.
and I bagged her up to give to friends
 well you know me, then I took it just a step further...
and I made her into a giraffe too. I couldn't help myself. My friend Georganne at LilaLoa sent me these adorable eyes so I felt compelled to make a cute giraffe with pretty blue eyes. I love her. Seriously. Like it was really hard to give her away!

 and all my cookies from this new fun cookie cutter

As is often the case, thank you to Abigail for being my inspiration and my muse! And thank you to all the cookie decorators that played along in our mystery cutter challenge! I love all the different ways you showed that the cutter can be used!
Our next mystery cutter challenge ends on Friday, so another collaborative project will be coming next Monday too!
