This set of cookies is meant to be for Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #27 - Circles. I just wanted to read the challenge post once more before I posted my entry, then it was when I realized that my cookies don’t qualify with the Rule #2 - no icing of the circles in sections or parts.

This particular design was in my mind for a long time and when I learnt about the challenge I just jumped into making them before reading the rules carefully. Literally, I was in tears... Well, what can I do? It’s all my fault.

Anyway, I’m still posting my cookie set without tagging for the challenge 😩😩😩

—————————

I am inspired by CookieCrazie’s “Cathedral Window Quilt Pattern” cookies. But I wanted to create a tile set using the same pattern. I decided to go with royal blue thinking that blue will give a more mediterranian look. As you will notice there are 12 whole circles (to comply with the challenge rule - silly me 🙄), rest consists of mini white star and blue eye shape cookies. Having detached mini cookies also allows me to play with the shape, as I can form them as a square, rectangle, triangle and etc. All the white sections are handpainted. 

This set was a challenge for me and I’ve got my lesson as a prize! (Still crying 😭😭😭)

Juat beautiful @La Shay by Ferda Ozcan!😍 Love this pattern! Is this a PBP challenge entry?

Please read my comment Manu 😢😢

 

@La Shay by Ferda Ozcan Oh sure!... what a pity! I was so mesmerized by the perfection of your circle cookies and the flooding... and they were twelve and the borders were clearly visible...that I got too excited and I forgot the “fully flooded” rule #2🙃!!!

But anyway this is such an amazing set and you should be so proud of it!!! Those cookies are simply amazing!!!

Could you share your cutting/icing technique? So brilliant. Do you draw the diamond design on a baked cookie and then slice before icing?  Or do you cut the shapes before baking? Although I guess that would mean they would spread and not fit so well.

I am so sorry this could not be an entry for the challenge!  It is a spectacular set of cookies.  I adore a good cookie puzzle, AND tiles!  There is still a week left to the challenge if you want to try to make another entry!!!

Amazing work!

Hi, Melinda! So great to see you on Cookie Connection. I just tried commenting on your comment on my YouTube channel, but suddenly YouTube is not letting me comment on anything. Not sure what's going on there, but there's always something . . . I do hope you'll enter our challenge though!

Hi Kathy, I did indeed cut the shapes before baking. I prepared a diamond template out of paper and put it on the round cut cookie dough and cut the “eye” shapes by the side of same round cutter. Does it make sense? I’m also attaching a photo to show it.

I also used the diamond template to draw the shape on the baked cookie. I iced the white part first, let it dry and then iced the blue coloured parts. 

My cookies don’t spread much, that’s why I was able to attach them together easily. 

Hope that helps 💙💙💙

So pretty! So sad that the set doesn't fit the challenge rules, but you should be super pleased with them nonetheless!

Thanks a lot Julia. In a way I’m grateful to the challenge because it just motivated me to make the cookie set that was in my mind for a long time. Otherwise, the set would have stayed on my to do list for a while. I think this is why challenges are so important and valuable.  Thanks for the opportunity Julia 💐

Thanks a lot for your lovely comments Christine. 💙💙

I’m indeed thinking of making another set but this time I’ll keep it simple for the sake of time-saving.

As it’s said “think, then act”, I’ll change it to “read -very carefully-,  then act”. 

Thanks a lot for your lovely, supportive comments. 💙💙

Warm regards dear Manu 😘
