I saw these cookies and they are incredible! MartinaF you are so talented. I don't know how those little lace parts are made? Those cookies are sooo beautiful. Is there a stencil to make those lace parts in the middle of the cookie? anyone knows how to do the lace part? here is one of her cookies:

I would say it's Sugar Veil, but since I've never used it I don't know for sure.

I don't know for sure but it kind of looks like sugarveil.

I've never used sugar veil either, but I've seen videos of how it's used and I don't think this is it. Just because the details are sooo tiny. I think the cookie artist actually pipes everything by hand. I don't know how in the world she does it, but that's what it looks like to me.

We could pm her and ask. Anybody have any idea what language she speaks and if Google will translate it? icon_confused.gif

Her signature says she is from the Czech Republic. Most people speak Czech there. I'll try using Google Translate and send her a message.

I think it's all hand-done royal icing and lots and lots and lots of practice. Her whole gallery shows incredible work. When I first saw them, I wanted to order some cookies and have her ship them to me in Seattle. Then I realized she is in the Czech Republic.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I read a post on one picture and someone ( can't remember who) asked her how she did it she said they were done with stencils they also asked if she would be willing to do a video and maybe someone could translate. She said it might be awhile that was in April 2011. So maybe one day we can all do cookies like her!

There are a number of ways to do these kinds of cookies. Sugarveil offers lace mats and the nozzle thingy so you can trace over a pattern. Then there are stencils, pattern transfers, or overlays (royal or chocolate.) Then again there's piping right on the cookie -- after you've made the impression you want to pipe. I guess it's whatever works.

I looked at sugarveil mats and I didn't see any of those patterns. maybe they have those stencils only in czech republic.

I sent a message to her yesterday, but it's still sitting in my "outbox," which means she hasn't opened it yet. I'll make sure to post what she replies with.

Nothing so sophisticated as Sugarveil icon_smile.gif . It's RI.

Being of Czech origin I used to see them quite often. It's a traditional style of decorating gingerbread cookies (similar skills are used to decorate Easter eggs - real eggs, in this case using different colors instead of RI). These patterns are hundreds of years old and originated in small villages, mostly in the eastern part of Czech Rep (Moravia), created individually by local countryside artists. I doubt she will reply soon, these artists are usually of a certain age (they don't go on-line so often and don't speak English). They learn to decorate from their mothers and grannies, it's something like a family tradition, so they have been doing it all their life. I've never really asked about details as it seems like something out of this world thumbs_up.gif and don't believe it would be possible to create something like this without years of practice (or Sugarveil?).

Wow Panel7124 - - that is absolutely amazing! I don't pipe - my hands have always been too shaky - so this is something like magic to me. Even more impressive, if that's possible. icon_eek.gif

Hehe jgifford, no piping for me either... Have a similar problem icon_redface.gif

This is a modern style of making gingerbread cookies, they are not so decorated but are still quite popular:

The artists like Martina are really exceptional, there are not many of them nowadays.
