My entry for the recent Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #31... 
It was really a challenge and now I know that I do not like wet-on-wet, haha.

Not sure if there is enough of wet-on-wet to count as a valid entry for the challenge though.

For me it's too stressfull if you have to hurry all the time and I can't work as detailed as I like to. Also the designs always look a little blurry. With a bit more practice it might be different, but it's not really my thing. 

I had planned six cookies, but the christmas ornament didn't turn out that well.  
That one and the mason jar I had to do two times. For my first try I didn't work with a border - lesson learned!

The second try of the christmas ornament was better, but one of my tip caps fell onto the fresh pattern... yay!

All six cookies

First, you are WAY too hard on yourself - these are fantastic! I agree with you that wet-on-wet can be a bit stressful because of the time constraints. I made a set of wet-on-wet pumpkins for my own Thanksgiving dessert table this year, and I had "premature crusting" problems aplenty! It is definitely easier to do wet-on-wet if you have a dry border with work within, but if you use thicker icing, and you are feelin' lucky, you might be able to avoid having to pipe the separate border. But back to this set... I love your wet-on-wet wood grain, and I think those chocolate cookies may actually qualify as wet-on-wet-on-wet-on-wet! This is a great addition to the challenge!

I am a bit late, but thank you! @Bakerloo Station ♥ ♥
Found out, that my icing was a bit too thick. Otherwise it would have been easier to work on the details. But that's the good thing about the challenges. There is always something you learn from it!
