This is my contribution to Challenge # 40.
I accepted your challenge dear Christine. You write there are many ways to create a "brush embroidery". I put brush embroidery on the raw dough in my cookie and then baked it. The bees' wings are also decorated with brush embroidery. They are made of very thick frosting, almost fondant. I glued them tight after baking. The whole cookie turned out to be too dark for me and so I thinly painted the beehive with icing sugar and white food coloring. Next time I would bake the basket with light cookie dough. I think that would be better. So I learned something again ...

How fun Gabi!! I love your idea of using brush embroidery to create this beehive @Icingsugarkeks!! So clever and creative my dear. Your little bees are adorable!! I really appreciate your explanation of how you created your beehive by baking the dough with the technique already applied. Awesome idea my dear ❀️. I know what you mean about the dark cookie dough but think that it still looks wonderful!! Hugs...

Carol, my cookie friend, Thank you so very much for your lovely words as always !! I really appreciate it so much!!! You makes me happy with your comment my dear !!!
So many hugs ... ❀️😘❀️ @Cookies Fantastique

I like your outside-the-box thinking when it comes to using cookie dough for your brush embroidery technique. For this challenge, I was looking more so for entrants to use the traditional brush embroidery technique - which uses royal icing - to create their not-so-traditional designs. Your bumblebee wings are a great example of this. I like the idea of a beehive; it is certainly very creative.
