Oh dear Manu, @Manu, this is the first opportunity I've had to take a peek at your gorgeous work with this set...many apologies for being "late to the party" here on CC. I've been buried in a large order (never a complaint...always a pleasure). But I've missed much that has been going on recently.

I absolutely love your approach to creating a set of cookies based on windows you took pictures of while traveling. I, too, have many pictures of ideas that I want to "cookie-fy" some day. The patterns of the windows are so interesting and detailed. Makes it so much fun, doesn't it?! I love your idea of making RI transfers for detailing the patterns of the windows. It worked out incredibly well. Love the effect ❀️❀️❀️

Thank you so much dear Carol! It was so much fun, but I need new glasses! Those patterns were to tiny. I went for the transfers so I avoided to sketch on the cookie. My transfers are usually quite sturdy because I outline them and then flood them with medium consistency ry. So I didn’t have any breakage. And it was nice to β€œcookie-fu” my memoriesπŸ’•

Nailed it, once again!!! Amazing work of art. So inspiring and beautiful, Manu! Thanks for always sharing the β€œbehind the scenes” which is as challenging as the actual decorating, and a proof that you are human, though with an incredible talent!

Congratulations, dear Manu!❀️

😊 Thank you @Heather Bruce Sosa!  I am definitely human and I need to have my eye tested asap if I want to do something similar again!!! I like talking about the β€œbehind the scenes” and I love to read about them. There are so many stories to tell behind each cookie!

These are so cool, Manu... so well done ❀️❀️❀️!

Thank you, Sonja! It is very hard for me piping small details. I always wonder how could you pipe and be so precise, especially after looking at your work in person (I keep your keepsake cookie jealously!)
