Just realized, these cookie are most likely printed with a "Cake Printer". It uses frosting instead of ink to print with. Still super cool!

If these were printed, the images they used to print them look to be redone.  They are definitely not images of the actual Wackys.

Nope, you're definitely right. It would be cool to see how she does these. No matter how they're done, they're some serious eye candy!

Iím no expert, but will admit to having a crafty wife and daughter. As a result , over the years I have watched more than my share of cake decorating shows and misc craft shows. I am pretty sure these cookies are hand piped (butter cream icing in bags using various tips). If someone wanted to make non-edible, similar pieces, I think fabric ďPuffy paintĒ  or similar product could be used. Of course, a bit of talent and or experience would be helpful.

I know nothing about cake and cookie decorating, but these cookies are incredible.  I can imagine they were time-consuming to make and would be expensive to buy.  However, does anyone know if one could make inexpensive cookies that still looked pretty good?  I mean, I would feel guilty eating the works of art shown here, but would relish the chance to eat cookies that looked good but didn't cost an exorbitant amount to make.

You shouldn't put relish on cookies, you might end up in a pickle  :o

I think the previously mentioned "cake printer" would be the way to go.

The cake printers are cool technology  but they basically are just printing a photo image using edible ink (food coloring) on a sheet that transfers to an iced cake, These cookies have a really nice "3D" look to them.

The 3D look is what made me think they were hand decorated with fondant and icing bags.

I totally hear you about the difference between a cake printer and what these cookies are.  I'm curious, however, about the price difference to create such things.  I'm guessing it would be very substantial.  I wouldn't want to eat one of these masterpieces.  But, at what I'm assuming is a markedly reduced price, I'm happy to have some of the cake-printed cookies to gooble up on special occasions.

Itís still sealed and even has a the original Woolworth tag on it (albeit some of it is slightly ripped off).

Yes, Iím planning on keeping it sealed. I found it on an eBay auction, and no one contested me in the bid. Canít complain about that?

Does anyone know what year those were released?

I never saw it on ebay or I would have bid, and then offered my opened boxed puzzle here.  Now I feel like building my unboxed puzzle again - haven't done that since the lock down last year. 

I believe this was released in 1983.

For a fun challenge, instead of putting the puzzle together the normal way where you do the edges first and then group like items and colors.  Try just grabbing each piece at random, identifying the sticker on the piece, looking at the picture on the box, and then placing it on the table where it should go.  I had a lot more fun doing it that way.

I like to do this puzzle without the box.  But, habit does compel me to build the frame first.

I bought a graded Series 1 set that included a bunch of upgrades for my set.  I will have a few 7s and a lot of 8s available once I figure everything out.

I know what set you're talking about! I was very close to pulling the trigger on that many times, but with some restraint I kept myself from doing so. I may be interested in some of the 8's, so let me know what you have when you get there.

When I think of the 10 or so titles I wish theyíd reprinted but didnít, these two always come to mind.

I know they got the Chrome treatment, but standard reprints would have been nice, whether Ď79-Ď80 Reissues, Ď82/Ď86 albums or Flashbacks.

When I had the opportunity to choose a test reissue sticker title as a single representative for my collection, I chose Jail-O.  It is so clear and sharp!  Just like this 1973 PSA 9, but maybe with a little more color.  The only way you can tell that it is a test reissue sticker is the kiss-cut.

The Jail-O you mention, is this from the test 5th Reissue Series?  I always thought a Ďproposedí checklist and a Wrapper was as far as that went production-wise.

I think Pat's referring to the 1979 test series.

Wow, have to admit I didnít really realize there was a test set for the Reissues before they went full launch.  I always thought there was only a wrapper suggesting a test set was planned but never materialized.  Looks like itís kinda similar to the second Wonder Bread issue, where titles are only distinguishable from their OS counterparts by slight differences in the diecuts.

I think this is the first I've heard of a '79 test issue myself.  It sounds like there was a full box found of these packs.  Interesting!
