Many thanks to @Laegwen for lovely tutorial - "Get Inspired wit Leagwen: First Day of School Cookies" - http://cookieconnection.juliau...of-school-cookie-set

I was so happy to find this tutorial as this set is a beautiful addition to the "Funny Times Tables" cookies I already made for my son`s school trip. 

I made some changes to the tutorial regarding the size of the cookies and the total number of cookies to accommodate Serbian latin alphabet.

Also I did not follow Laegwen`s color scheme completely  and I must admit that I like her cookies colors more .

As I am someone who like to cut corners a lot, this tutorial finally made me to color my icing  before flooding (I mostly flood with white icing and airbrush later) and I am finally in love with food markers that I tried to avoid for a such long period, since my first use of them was not so successful

@Dragana - I was also curious as to which edible markers you used, as your lines look so nice and crisp (and also dark)? Sometimes those darn markers do not leave dark lines! 

i am using Wilton`s brand, and what I did not like with those markers is that they have very thick tip, so you can  not write with sharp angle, but almost normal to the surface. As for the dark lines, it might be just because they were not used a lot... but now I think I will ... and I will try to get hold on the thinner brand, I know that I saw them somewhere.

That thinner brand is Rainbow Dust, but, sometimes, even when the markers are new, it's tough to get them to draw evenly and heavily, or at least that's been my experience. I don't use them much for this reason.

Dragana! These are fabulous!  I had totally forgotten about this tutorial. These cookies are absolutely perfect for a school trip! I am sure your son's class adored them! I also like how the tutorial inspired you to revisit techniques that you previously struggled with.  Well done, and congratulations on being our first challenge entry!

Thank you, I really enjoyed doing this set of cookies and what I heard, they were a sweet treat after a long, long walk
