First, I flooded the gingerbread cookies and before the icing had completely set, I used my fingertips to gently break the Royal Icing. Then, I painted the colors on, piped the Lambeth overpiped designs, then hand painted the gold on last. You can see how the cracked Royal Icing gives an extra texture, or dimension, to the overall look.

I love all the many subtle details you included in this very modern spin on the Lambeth technique! The cracked effect on the base layer does add a whole other element of texture and depth, as you noted. The whole stained glass effect really comes together through your use of the gold-painted top layer of piping. Gorgeous set of cookies, and a great entry to the challenge!
