Have done some lambeth overpiping just once before, so this was not completely new but still a challenge. It's not that it's really that difficult, but gettings the layers nice and symmetrical is tricky... at least for me and my perfectionism....

Btw not sure if anyone would eat such a cookie because that's really a LOT of icing on it. 

Worked with one smaller PME star tip(would have to look up the number) and a number 3, 2 and 1 tip.

Did two cookies, but the second one was just a testing piece to get into the swirls and layers. 
And by reading the rules again I just realized that I disqualified myself, haha! Happens when you don't read the rules again before piping and just do the entry inbetween... lesson learned.

Wait, what? Why do you think this entry would be disqualified @GinkgoWerkstatt?

@Bakerloo Station Because of rule #3! 
"3. You must use all royal icing on top of the cookie. Glaze, fondant, and buttercream are not permitted. Sprinkles, dragées, nonpareils, and other embellishments are also not permitted. Painting your royal icing IS permitted."

Oh no! Perhaps you could gently pull off the dragees and pipe royal icing dots in their place?

Oh how gorgeous my dear!!! Beautifully done and the stringwork is the perfect touch @GinkgoWerkstatt ❤️❤️. It sure looks like you've done more than just one Lambeth method cookie before!!

Aww, thank you @Cookies Fantastique by Carol ! ♥ ♥ 
Once you get the feeling for adding details it's not that difficult. It's just adding more and more... you just have to know when to stop to not overdo it.

Hm, not sure it that would work. Will check that later!
