This set is my second entry to Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #31. 

My last one tells a story by 3 scenes.

This time, I wanted to show LOVE by one scene.  The subtitle is “Love, top of anything”  Does Santa Clause put the letter on many presents, on top of anything?  Or is he getting a letter?

I wanted to include angels that I had wanted to make, a strawberry-shaped present and marble designed wrapping paper for the box.

These are the cookies made by only wet-on-wet technique.  The red sock is wet-on-wet icing transfer.  I have found out wet-on-wet is just the nicest technique to show fire.  

The most enjoyable part of this challenge is there are so many entries and I can see how other cookiers decorate their cookies by wet-on-wet technique.

Another fabulous and so creative set, Ryoko! So love your Santa and that fireplace with the candles on top ❤️❤️❤️!!!

Hi Sonja!   Thank you.  I live in rather warm area so we do not have fireplace.  I wanted to imagine fancy one but it was hard ....  It must be very very cold over there in your place, take care.

Ooh, the angels and lights are priceless! Love those cute cherubs!

My mind is full of Christmas!  because I see many and pretty Christmas related cookies here and pretty advent calendar 

I hope you're enjoying all of the many surprises in your calendar! 

This is another fantastic entry, Ryoko! I completely agree that wet-on-wet is a great technique for creating fire. I love everything about this scene, but I am especially drawn to your angels and lightbulbs. The angel designs are beautiful, and I especially like your use of the two tones of grey to create some dimension. I like those tiny lightbulbs because they are so perfect and crisp looking, which is so very tricky to accomplish with wet-on-wet!
