I flooded the entire cookie and when dry I drew the designs on with food colour markers and just outlined and flooded in areas. Thanks for the compliment!!! I had to take the picture quickly as my kids were eyeing them right from the start. lol

Congratulations everyone on your wonderful cookies, gee, what a great idea to do bugs! Whose idea was that anyway? Oh wow, it was mine for last month! Great job everyone, I am still practicing with a new cookie recipe, trying fondant on cookies for the first time and a new icing recipe. Can't wait to post mine. Back to the kitchen!

Sorry for being dense... it looks like even the sides are covereed. Did you dip the cookie first, then draw on the background design, then do the bee on top of that?

Don't be silly, not being dense!!! Yes ... I put the cookies on cooling racks over parchment paper and then covered them in thinned-out icing completely covering them and the sides. I used one of the design colours for the flooding to make it easier (i.e., yellow with the bees and light pink with the butterflies)

Once the background was dry I drew on the designs and then using medium icing I piped the design and about 1/2 hour after that I thinned the icing and flooded the parts of the design that needed to be filled in.

Does that make sense - not sure that it came out right?

Wow what a month - only 7 days into August and the cookies are already 'flying' (and crawling icon_rolleyes.gif ) in

Bonniebakes - Love the cookies (and early start getting these bugs flying) especially the catapillars (yah just want to eat those little legs)

Icottington
- your bees are very cute

Cookieman - love the black sparkel on the ladybug heads, and love the tip choice on the bodies of the butterflys - I assume by piping iciing you did not use royal icing fo the body?

Eromero - great job thinking out of that red-lady bug box.

Getfrosted - Welcome to the 'club' - great cookies - I especially like the 3d effect and they honeycomb backround.
