Hi cakesonoccasion,
Thank you very much.
Yes, you're right. Almost all of my cookies are outlined in black royal icing with a #2 tip. I just like how it looks--similar to the way I draw any illustration.

Nancy they are amazing! You have such talent! Would you mind if I ask how you get your RI shiny? I've heard to add light corn syrup in the mix, but mine still don't look that shiny. I've even put them under a heating lamp, nope!
Thank you!

Nancy, I would pay whatever you asked for your cookies. They are downright amazing! I would love to have any artistic skill at all. I always liked doing cookies because it was a medium I could achieve (like coloring in a coloring book) but you have now elevated that to unattainable heights! Great work!

P.S. I love the Henry the VIII cookie the best. I love your humor!

Thanks very much EverlastingSweets,
Actually, most of my royal dries into a matte finish. But some colors--like the red in Anne B's dress, dried to a very shiny, and spongy finish!!! It's weird but I'll assume that certain colors have different chemical properties. I mixed a few different reds for that dress so I don't even know which one dries shiny. I could write a whole page on the quirks, oddities, and extreme frustrations I've dealt with just on the subject of royal icing!!!! icon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gif
So I, along with you would love to know a good additive to get that glossy look when I wanted it. I've used corn syrup in the past but for some reason that I can't recall now, dumped it. But I know that lots of cookie decorators use it routinely. Time for us to experiment some more!!!

You are so right Nancy!
If I find the secret, I'll let you all know! I must go experiment....

Hey, I had to look up which # wife Anne Boleyn was AND I could not spell her surname. Bet you knew both so who's the cool and smart one here!!!!!



Actually I didn't know what number she was =) hahaha so being the smart one is crossed off the list!! AND I didn't make crazy awesome Henry-the-8th-and-his-headless-wife cookies... so I guess coolness is scratched off, too icon_smile.gif

bonniebakes~ do the frogs! do the frogs! I couldn't hardly find any pics to go by and well your cookies are amazing.

Hi bonniebakes,
Thanks for the nice comment.
Yes, I'm an illustrator by trade so the jump to edible art was not a big one. Although, holding and squeezing a pastry bag is WAY more difficult than holding my paint brushes.
The Henry/Anne cookie is 5x7" and the Roy-Al-T guys are 3x3"
My avatar cookie ( BTW--I'm impressed that you noticed it IS a cookie) is
6x10".
Thanks for asking!!! And yeah, GET BAKING!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif
