Hi I'm Camilla, daughter of Vera Madeira. I'm using google translate because I do not speak English. Sorry for any mistake. My mother and I found this link because the blog has accused many visits. Mamy thanks for the compliments and comments by her work. Cookies are painted with edible ink on icing. Here in Brazil called Royal Icing. Did not use any print or edible paper. Are painted like a painter paints a picture screen. They take 3 hours to paint everything and get ready. The value of each cookie is $ 10.5 dollar (small) and R $ 14.05 (large). To make the course is not necessary to know how to paint. All students can paint like my mom. Unfortunately we do not work with handouts or DVD's. I want to thank again the affection of everyone here. Kisses
Everytime I look at them I think, "these are such beautiful cards", not cookies, but cards. They remind of the Christmas cards from the 50's and 60's, and I just love those vintage cards. Then to realize these are cookies, just blows me away each time I look at them. They are so beautiful.

Hi Camilla welcome to CC, and thank you for joining the CC family.
Your mother is a talented artist, and you probably are too.
Please consider making simple video tutorials on a public site like youtube, and please consider making DVD tutorials in long term so we can lear from you guys.
Shoot for the moon and even if you miss you will still land among the stars!!!
Beautiful cookies. I love the translation too! But your words are so kind, we get the meaning of it.
For those of us who do not have this wonderful talent, we could use rice paper and then paint details on top of it, like the surface texture of Santa's beard. I do not own an edible printer, but more and more seeing something like this makes we wish I had.
