Mesmerizing!!! I love how you create flowers in wet on wet, amazing! I was wondering if you use a mini steamer to keep top-coating so wet for such a long time. Or maybe, do you prepare a very flood icing, flooder than normal top-coating consistency? Thank you for answering 🌻

I made this cookie in Dubai. I lived by the sea, so it was really humid. It was enough to turn off the A/C and open the window for a while. The icing never set. I made several experiments before making this cookie of course, so I knew exactly the amount of time I needed to complete this flower. And I also knew that if the icing started to set it would be enough to open the window and keep working... a kind of natural steamer. I needed to work with a thick icing consistency because the temperature in the room was high.

Once I was finished decorating it has been necessary to turn on the A/C and put the cookie in a dehydrator or in front of a fan to make it dry quickly and to avoid bleeding.

Thank you for your quick answer! Humidity is the best friend of wet on wet, so useful to live in such a beautiful place πŸ˜‚ therefore I prefer working on details with stiff icing, flood icing sets immediately, no way! Love your works 🌻🌻🌻
