Wow! I LOVE this! It is so unique and the design is so clean and elegant! The black cookie base is so, so cool. Did you use black cocoa powder to get that color, Joss, or did you need to add black food coloring, or both? And while I am in question mode, please tell us - are the pieces on the top of the lid all made with molds? In any event, I love how the gold details pop against the black. This is just a spectacular entry. Again, WOW!

Hi everyone! 

For this amazing challenge, I made a 3D box filled with "bonbons" made of cookies as well. I worked on a black cookie base, and added details in Royal icing. Hope you like it! IMG_20190111_155835IMG_20190111_160033IMG_20190111_155929IMG_20190111_160010

LOVE to see all of these different angles! The only one I think I would have liked to have seen is one of your corners.  Do you have any visible icing at the box seams, or were you able to avoid that with the type of box structure you used?

Thank you so so much for the great feedback, Christine! Yes, I used a mixture of cocoa powder and Sugarflair black. The black dome was made with a dome shaped metallic mold, but the lid decorations are hand carved, no molds used there! Again, thank you SO much for the incredible words!!

Luckily, the structure of the box was designed to have the tiniest gap possible, and while I glued them on the inner part of the sides, I covered every gap with black Royal icing, then scraped it off to have a seamless look!
