Lovely, Tina! Can you tell us a bit more about how this cookie was done? Size of tip used? How was pink coloring applied (piped or painted on after, or perhaps airbrushed on in spots)? Thanks!

Oops, I see you answered the coloring question earlier. So just wondering about the tip!

The Cookie was handcut with a design I drew up - it's 14x17 cm.

The crackle effect I achieve by applying a thin coat of  a mixture of amicolor white, corn flour and  clear vanilla on the cut chilled cookie before baking.

The design was found on a Free Embroidery Site. I print it out to fit the dimensions of the cookie and from there one can approach it in several ways. Either by tracing the design with tracing paper and then using an edible marker to transfer the design on my cookie. This technique I did with the Birds and Flower set . But for this set I actually made a RI transfer and worked on it. It was difficult to transfer but really helped identify the separation lines of the petals much better. It had some breaks but I was able to cover it with the lines.     

With the tracing paper technique I then begin from the back part of the design moving forward flooding the design with a soft peak consistency RI giving volume to the flowers. 

I mix the colors I want to use  with a stif consistency RI, in this case the two shades of green and 7 shades of pink fill the bags and use a number 1 tip. It can be done tipless but the lines are not clean enough for my liking .

Then I begin.  Working back to front I begin the lines. Each section gets a first layer of lines in the direction I want and then I build on that. The direction of the lines depends on where you want the flow of the design. I try to follow the print but I need to work on that. 

This took about 3 full afternoons.   I almost threw this cookie away several times but kept telling myself to stick with it. 

At the end I airbrushed a soft pink luster  on the entire flower.

In all this cookie took me about a week to complete from start to finish,  sadly to say.  I'm not very fast as most and I have far too many distractions in my life. I hope this helps someone who wants to do something similar.
