I made this 3D cookie cake using the Lambeth piping technique. This is my very first time to use this technique. 3D construction inspired by @Julia M. Usher as usual. Thank you so much Julia for the wonderful tutorial. For me, it was so hard to bake and assemble curved shaped cookies. I wonder how you assembles them so easily, neatly and wonderfully. 
Flood and stiff consistency royal icing and #1, #3, #13, #16, #46, #101 nozzles being used. 
Couldn't capture all of the steps since I was working with my toddler. But here I attached some of steps I could able to capture. It was really fun and educative. Since it fall on to our anniversary, I used the theme "Anniversary".

Whole cookie dimension:
Wide 13 cm
Length 13 cm
Height 14 cm without topper.

A lot of the trick is in having your dough formulated properly for 3-D work - and in rolling thinner than you might expect. The curved pieces will spread and crack less that way!

Wow, this is spectacular! What a labor of love this must have been. I can't believe you learned 3-D cookie construct AND Lambeth-style piping just for this challenge! YOU are a Practice Bakes Perfect rockstar @Kanch J! I hardly know where to start with my comments, so I will go from top to bottom! You did a wonderful job with that lettering. It's hard enough to do single-layer lettering on a cookie, let alone multi-layer lettering transfers! Amazing.You did a terrific job on all of the upper layer scrollwork, and it does a wonderful job of hiding the cookie seams! I like that delicate stringwork hanging below the top tier, but I am truly wowed by the stringwork at the bottom o the cake. It's very impressive! What a magnificent addition to the challenge this is!

Holy Crap! This is so nice. Its good you can cover up some of the mistakes with all the piping! That's what I did!! I love your bottom layer. What did you use to bake your curved pieces on?

Yes, did cover up seams (and mistakes could cover up too) as progressed. To bake curve I used Tuna Can and stainless steel cylinder which I had. Thanks @talia!
