These originated in the idea to make a 3D isomalt star (which I still want to do), but wanting to take part in this challenge ended up making these dimensional royal icing transfers first, also to see how the assembling of the triangles would work out.

I really enjoyed doing the wet-on-wet here, although one cannot be as exact as with regular piping. What I like best in this technique, is the look one can achieve when the icing of the design is thicker than the background icing. Like this the unmarbled parts only partially sink into the flooded background, which gives it the appearance of hand painted china.

How gorgeous dear Sonja @swissophie!! The 3D effect with the dimensional design works incredibly well!! I love the colors and how you've created a "star within a star" in your designs (darker on the inside, lighter on the outside). Brilliant ❤️❤️

Thanks so much, my dear Carol @Cookies Fantastique by Carol ❤️❤️❤️! Your comments are always uplifting! Hugs !

Sonja these cookies are “mind blowers”! How awesome! I had to look at them twice cause I couldn’t believe what I saw. They are incredible. You must have taken a long time in completing them. Congratulations!👏👏❤️

Thank you so much for your kind comment, Heather @Heather Bruce Sosa ❤️❤️❤️!!! Yes, these took some time, mainly because of the drying times of the transfers, and the assembly of the triangles. The wet-on-wet part goes a bit faster than regular piping, though...

Just wow. This is an incredible set of cookies. I am in awe of your 3-D star transfers. Please tell us - are the designs on the transfers also wet-on-wet? I ask because those tiny stars on the dark blue star are just so incredibly perfect. I very much appreciate your comment about how wet-on-wet cookies can have the look of hand-painted porcelain, and indeed, that is exactly what these cookies look like! Masterful.

Thanks a lot, Christine @Bakerloo Station ❤️❤️❤️! Yes, all patterns on the 3D stars are wet-on-wet also.
