I made this cookie a bit large (the size of a cake). The logo was done as a royal icing transfer. Each colour was piped separately and allowed to dry. I piped the lines using the same colour for texture and to add interest. I then flooded in between each colour with white icing. The icing was thick but unfortunately, it started to form craters where each section crossed. I also found the white did not look as "tidy" as I would have liked. I solved both problems by piping white lines over top. I think the white lines compliment the lines used in the rest of the logo and give the overall appearance a sharp, crisp look.

Logo used with permission.

Oh another perfection! Love the colours! And I agree with you about the white lines. It's so beautiful!

Thank you, Zara! I hadn't thought about white lines when I planned this cookie. I'm glad my white icing turned out not so well.

I absolutely LOVE this Christine! You are a genius with string piping...you consistently amaze me with your skills and creativity....this is gorgeous, flawless work

Thank you Carol. I submitted a (very poorly drawn) mock-up for approval. I must say that this did turn out better than expected.

Wow!  This cookie makes me want to visit Canada!  Perfect everywhere!  Flooding, straight lines, logos ....  how could you flood that big cookie smoothly?  

Thank you, Ryoko! You are so kind. If you ever come to Canada I will have to make sure to teach you how I pipe my lines! For this big cookie, I outlined with a no. 3 tip. It was a large area to flood and I didn't want the outer edges to start drying while I was still piping the inner part, so I used a spoon and scooped icing all over the cookie. I then used my scribe where needed and gently shook it to even it out.  I used a regular flood consistency.

No tour in Canada?  I am just kidding.   Spoon, that's right, that way is fast!    Thank you, and yes, I will try it with the tip No. 3 and spoon to flood a big cookie.

Stunning work , how long did this take you ? X

Thank you, Lisa! I wish I could say how long it took but I did this a little at a time over several days, so can't say for certain. I know it took a couple of hours to mix the colors just right (they photographed darker than they are). But I think if I were to do this again, it might take a few hours - I'm a slow piper.
