I had a bride approach me for gold brush embroidery cookies. Now, I love brush embroidery and in gold it will be even more special but the cost of one of those tiny gold highlighters which I use with vodka and piping gel is $10US. That one pot will probably safely cover 2 to 3 cookies maximum with all the gold piping. I use the gold piping recipe from CC most saved recipes and the yield is next to nothing I find. Any other suggestions on how to make gold piping?
Do you ever tell a bride it is not worth it or go on and still quote that high price that you know might just seem ridiculous. In the end her one round cookie with gold piping is probably going to retail for $15 - $20US to be worth my time to do all that work and incur the cost of all those pots of gold and she is in need of hundreds of cookies.
What do you all think? Her cookies might cost more than her cake in the end!
