@Tammy Trahan New Orleans Cookie Company - These are great! Can you tell us a little more about what techniques you applied where? I just love it when people share this info, as it maximizes everyone's learning experience. So I'm assuming the frames are molded fondant, and the background images were mostly stamped. Is that right? But how were the primary/central images done? They almost look a little lifted, as if stamped on wafer paper or something else, then painted, and stuck down. But please fill us in!

@Julia Usher  First I'll say that these were so much fun to make! Lol. Yes, you are correct in thinking that the frames are made of fondant. It was my first time using black, and I love it.  And yes, the cookies themselves are iced in Royal Icing and each one is stamped in a different color. I antiqued them with two different color cocoa powders. The characters are made of rolled fondant, then stamped and carefully cut out. I allow them to dry overnight. I then sand the edges and carefully hand paint them. Lastly, I paint the edges that are about 3/64" thick with a black food color gel. I glue them on to the cookie with Royal Icing. The smaller embellishments are either made the same way or by using small fondant molds. :-))

Oh how I enjoy doing this!!

Thanks! 

Amazing work, Tammy! I received this book when I was eight years old, with the Italian translation on the side. I read and re-read thousand times and got lost in these illustrations. The background on each cookies gives (me) the feeling of the images of a dream and of being suspended in that imaginary word.❤️

Tammy!  These are absolutely fabulous!  I love all of the stamping techniques and different materials used.  The subtle layering of all of these different techniques and textures really helps to create the vintage mood (in addition to the very vintage images themselves). Which colors of petal dust did you use for the brownish-antiquing?
