This was the tricky trial and error part. If the isomalt is too hot, it will burn the royal icing and if it cools down too much, it doesn't properly fill in. If you want to pour it with a teaspoon or silicone cup, make sure your designs "parts" aren't too small. No smaller than 1cm or about half an inch. Otherwise I suggest you use a parchment bag. Use small amounts at a time as the isomalt set very quickly. 

I think a larger design will be a lot easier, like Tulips for instance. Also, you could isomalt the entire panel in clear, pipe over it and just paint the parts. Use alcohol or vodka to paint with to avoid the sugar from dissolving.

Assemble parts with royal icing and let dry overnight. 

I learned a lot, especially what not to do 😁. I'm confident that the next one will look much better. 

Thank you for the inspection @Manu. It's always a pleasure to view your work, I especially enjoy your patternsand seasons. X

Aww, you made my day - and it was a rough one too, so your words especially lifted my spirits!

Thank you so much, Tarryn @Love Cookies for giving a try to my tutorial! And thank you for the detailed step by step pics and details.

Your lantern is beautiful and I loved to see your personal touch on the glass. That stained glass is amazing, and I am drawn to the pattern you have choosen. I will surely try this technique!

That tutorial was a learning curve for me as well but the little mistakes I made (which I now call experience!!!) helped me for the next lanterns. 

I read that @Julia M. Usher’s tutorials changed your life, and they surely changed mine! Her “3-D Retro Oven Cookie” tutorial on You Tube in particular put the seeds for this tutorial.

Thank you, I'm happy that you like the pattern. 😀

Your stained glass cookie lantern is beautiful. Thank you for taking the time to share the process and the techniques you learned.

This would look amazing as table centerpiece or as a window on a  gingerbread house.   

Absolutely incredible!  This challenge entry, with your detailed process pictures and descriptions is like a tutorial within a tutorial! I have never used isomalt myself, but after reading your description, I am tempted (and still a bit scared!). I cannot believe that you piped and filled that intricate stained glass pattern on ALL FOUR SIDES! Simply amazing.  Well done!

Thank you for the challenge and braking the tutorial ice 😁. I'm also still a bit new to Isomat and I find it interesting. For safety I put on two pairs of surgical gloves so if some Isomat falls on your hands you can just take the one pair of gloves of. Thanks again 😀
