Here is my " big project". 😄 First off, when I started this I thought I got this. I have seen @juliamusher do this enough, I can handle it. To be honest I did have a tough time doing the actual structure part of the cookie. I use hanielas sugar cookie recipe on a normal basis without any problem but I think I need Julia's recipe for this one. I did not get any progress pictures even though I promised myself I would! So I used 2 different size soup cans to bake the "cake" part. I did it twice and neither time I could get a nice even circle to put together. Hence there is a nasty seam right down the middle of the top tier. Its a little more off to the side on the bottom tier. I dipped them and dried them, decorated the 2 tiers separately and then glued them together and put on the tiny green accent flowers. My first time for toothpick roses too! I just got a Wilton 101s tip for this. I really like it despite my mistakes and really want to try this out on a real cake. Also every cookie piece individually is at the minimum requirements for the challenge.

Wow. This is so wonderful. What a lot of work. 👏👏👏❤. I'm also doing a 3D cookie cake project. But this is spectacular! 👌

I can't wait to see yours!

I think this is spectacular! You are a bit too hard on yourself about the seams - had you not mentioned them, I would hardly have noticed. Julia does make all of these 3-D creations look so easy, doesn't she?! Your Lambeth piping and string work are really lovely, and the pops of green are fun. Great job!

Thank you so much!  I really want to do more 3d things. It was a blast. And Ilove this overpiping thing!

Fantastic - it looks like a real cake! How wide and tall is it, out of curiosity?

Its about 7" tall with both tiers.  The bottom tier is 5 and 1/2" across and the top tier is about 3 and 3/4 across.
