It's one of two tutorials I picked for the "Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #28". Let's see if I can manage to finish the other one before the dealine as well!

The tutorial I used is http://cookieconnection.juliau...spring-easter-cookie written by @Dolce Sentire - Aixa Zunino
I love her style and her creations, so I was looking for a tutorial that can be done even though I am busy and that doesn't require too many special materials or anything I do not own.

The most challenging part have been the ruffles (never really did them before and obviously failed, haha) and glueing it all together. Was extremely afraid if such a little connection can really hold that weight! But luckily nothing broke.

And as I don't like to make exact copies while working with tutorials, I gave it a bit of personal touch. That's why we have some fresh spring green and ginkgo leaves. It isn't really easter time anymore anyway. 😂
Also my base got a little bigger, but that was because I didn't really paid attention to the size of it (while reading the tutorial).

The cutter is from @Kristina Rado, who I recently met at the Cake & Bake in Germany and who was selling her cookie cutters there - was looking for them for ages ❤️

The design I used for the inner part is made by me.

The rose is simply beautiful! And I especially like your very personal touch: the gingko leaves!

Thank you, @Manu 😘
I don't like gold that much, and while thinking what other color I could use, I ended up with my preferred green... and with that I also had to add those leaves, to make it all match somehow.

Wow!  This is beautiful! I have always wanted to try to make one of @Dolce Sentire - Aixa Zunino's roses! You did a brilliant job. Your rose template is amazing.  And your description of your process was hysterically awesome, by the way! I do hope you will have time to complete your second challenge entry!

Thank you, @Bakerloo Station ❤️
And yes, her roses are awesome! So should totally give it a try.

Just finished it! I should have worked on other things, but I really wanted to finish that other entry as well. I am good at prioritizing things, haha.
