Oh Gott, da bekomm ich ja einen Friemelanfall nur vom zugucken *lol*

Way cool, Sonja, and very impressive! Thanks for making the video, I might actually give it a try - on a much smaller scale, of course!

Sonja, thank you so very much for putting this tutorial together!!! The stitching looks so realistic and I can see how tedious the process is to make all of these stitches with the icing. Your work is so beautiful and I love the detail with each of your projects .

A very effective technique, but definitely time consuming! But all good things take time

Thank you very much for showing us, this is going onto my to-try list!

Thanks for watching, Liesbet, and your kind comment . The original footage was just about 60 minutes. But it's my first video, and moving the cookie when zoomed in with the cam could easily move it out of the frame, so had to adjust a lot. Also, I had the icing too stiff for the first half, which takes longer to pipe. I think under ideal conditions it would take about 30 minutes to pipe the stitches for a cookie this size. Thanks again <3!

Thanks much, Leoni! With the right RI consistency and some practice one can actually pipe pretty fast. Do give it a try . I bet with your creativity, you could come up with some neat cookies !

Thanks so much for your sweet comment, Carol, and for watching! I had actually fun doing it the video (my first one ever), once I got started, despite all the reservations I had . Piping stitches can be tedious, but only if the consistency is too stiff. If it's just right, they can be done in a continuous swift motion, and it can actually be relaxing... at least for me . Thanks again so much <3!

Thank you so much for this tutorial. Your work is amazing! I have been searching for this technique for so long. I will try it on winter cookies.  

Great, Libuša! Thanks so much for your kind words <3!

This is amazing to watch Sophie! How I wish I could get my icing consistencies like this!  Thank you so much for posting this video, you certainly have a lot of talent!

Try 180g of confectioner's sugar to 30g of egg white with 1/8 tsp of cream of tartar., beaten 2-3 minutes on high. That's what I'm using here, but depending on your location and weather, it might differ slightly. Just keep playing around with it until you have it right. With time, you'll get the feeling for it . Thanks very much for your kind comment, Carol-Ann <3!

Amazing! And really useful, as I've just been contacted about maybe doing some 'knitted' cookies! Thanks for posting.

Thanks a lot, Lucy <3! So glad about the good timing !!!

I loved this tutorial, Sonja, thanks for sharing. I am sure we will see a lot of knitted cookies soon!!!

Thank you so very much, Manu <3! I'm very hopeful that people will make use of the technique, and we will see a much greater variety in "knitted" cookies . Thanks again!!!

You make it look so easy!!! Such a stunning technique, thank you for sharing~

Thanks so much, LeeAnn <3! Just give it a try and you'll see with some practice it's not difficult to do .

I am so excited about this video!!! Thank you!! I have watched it and watched it and I'm still in awe! So amazing!! I just can't believe you can make icing look just like a knitted sweater! Talented, artistic people never cease to amaze me. Thank you again for sharing!!

Am so happy you like it, Miachel ! Thanks so much for your kind words <3!!!

Thanks for posting this video, Sonja. I think I might just give it a try. On the technical side, can you tell me where you mount your video camera? I want to record a video showing how I pipe lines but don't know where to mount my camera (phone). The view you show is perfect!

Christine,

I got the technique from http://cookieconnection.juliau...ino-of-emma-s-sweets. You mount the cam right in front of you facing down onto your work and flip the whole footage vertically once you edit the video. That way it will look like you tape over your shoulders. This can be done in Movie Maker. Don't know about other apps.

Can't wait to see how you pipe your lines !

I can't believe it! Sonya, you are great! What a job! I'll try it as soon as possible! Thank a million for sharing. You are so generous!

Thank you, Ina . All I know about cookie decoration is from people who were generous enough to share... so just giving back a little . Can't wait to see your creations . Thanks again <3!!!

"And that's all there is to it." !!  O my gosh Sonja, I'd be tangled in icing as I would be with yarn!

Developing this technique could only be accomplished by one who knits very well and is extremely dexterous with a piping cone.  You're amazing. 

i couldn't quite tell if you reversed  the direction of the second row even though you're not turning the cookie upside down. Does that make sense? Please, if it does, what can you tell me?

A very humbled, Pip

Hi, Pip! So nice to hear from you again . Missed you around here!

Thanks for your kind words! As for the direction of the second row: I'm not quite sure whether I understand, but I think you're talking about the second half of the stitches that I show in slow motion (every full stitch row is made of two separate rows). The first half is (for a right handed person) piped diagonally from top left to bottom right, and the second half from left bottom to top right. If this is not what you meant, just let me know !

Thanks again so much!!!

I went back and watched again and with your explanation and rewatching the video, I got it. :-)
