Help - Looking for a cookie photo

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I'm looking for a photo of cookies that was posted in the last couple of months. They were cut out cookies of flowers, iced in purples and lime green I believe, maybe some navy blue as well. They were absolutely beautiful done in outlines and plaids. If I'm not mistaken they were a gift to someone who was dealing with medical/health issues. The person also included a link to their blog.

Thanks,
Lisa

If they were made by psneed5 or another girl I can't remember her name, it's something with "sweets" in it. I had a few of both of their picks saved in my favs. When I went back to look at them they had removed all of their photos because of cc policies.
But I forgot to save the link. icon_redface.gif I'm sure someone has it. I'd like to have it too!

I had those photos saved as well - she does wonderful work. I've bookmarked her blog for future reference. Do you know what part of CC's policy would have required that she remove her photos? Just curious.

In place of the pictures she said that cc has the right to publish photos without consent of the decorator. So she removed her photos and left the link to her blog.

I would love to know how she does that tartan look. I emailed her once but she didn't respond. She makes the most beautiful cookies. I can only imagine how much time she invests in one cookie.

Anyone know how she does that tartan look?

Really?
I pm'd her once and she got back to me right away and was very helpful and so sweet.
I'm not sure how she achieves the look you are talking about, but she told me she uses edible pens/markers for smaller details, like her plaid work.
Maybe you could try to email her again.

If you click on her pictures you get a really large photo that shows all the details. You can see where she's piped some of the work (a VERY steady hand indeed!) and you can tell where she's used the edible pens for things like the little stitching marks around the outer edge of the mittens, etc.

Regardless, those are some of the most beautiful and detailed cookies I've seen. I'm totally in awe of that kind of patience and talent!

i emailed her and she was super gracious about answering my questions.
she does the tartons wet-on-wet and the stitching is edible food markers.
...and she does this with what is essentially glace, NOT royal icing, which tickles me pink because i love seeing challenging designs done in icing other than royal (glace fan, can you tell, lol).

I agree her cookies are absolutely beautifully decorated but is it just me, or are they super super thick?

They are super-thick! Her blog says she sets her Dobord to 3/8".

They are also quite blond looking as well. I've never been able to get thick cookies to taste good.

I've asked her questions as well. She's very kind and helpful!
You can either be thin and wrinkly or you can eat another piece of cake and fluff those things out!

They are thick and that's how I make my sugar cookies. I like them to be like the cookie bouquet type - thick and with some chew to them, rather than thin and crispier. I found the cookie bouquet cookie recipe online a few years back and made it and fell in love with it. I've tried googling it these days and can't find it so I'm glad I saved it!

Oh, i didn't realize that there was a different type of recipe for cookie bouquet type cookies. I thought that the same recipes are used except they are just rolled out thicker. But when i tried to make my cookies thicker for bouquets, i just ended up with very very bland cookies.
