Wow, wow, wow! you have done some truly masterful piping here, @PUDING FARM! Tell me, are all of the details transfers, or did you pipe some bits directly on the cookies? I ask because some details (like the hanger for the bell) seem almost too delicate to transfer! Also, I am wondering how you got that amazing pitted, distressed texture to your piped royal icing. Did you brush with alcohol or water after they dried? Do tell! Continuing my gushing review... let me say that it was super creative to turn the rooster to its backside to create a different texture and almost color. I have to agree with what some other commenters here have already said- that despite this set being all black, you cannot miss a single detail. Fabulous entry!

I am very grateful for your incentive words @Bakerloo Station!

Well, every detail of the bell decoration I made directly on the cookies.
I didn't use anything after drying.
I worked with a very dense royal icing.
The active carbon powder is shiny and it caused the different texture. Most of the decorations were made separately and I put them on the cookies
after the drying (for example the keys, the door handle, the knocker and the cock). Otherwise, the cock was deliberately put upside down, as if the wind had turned around.

Thank you again! β€β€β€

Your cookies are fantastic! After reading all the previous comments, I’m thinking that you have an admiration for the metal of old-time blacksmith trade and is great idea to reproduce in cookie icing, great challenge! 

I notice that some of the elements of one cookie icing is moveable, the key rings, so much fun! 

What was your first project or recommend as a beginner?

Thank you so much for your comment @Annesweets! That’s very kind of you! ❀❀❀

My first project was white monochrome cookie (Hungarian embroidery pattern).
