Thank you! Still practicing and experimenting. I wanted to realize something with letters , and rather than choosing a name randomly I decided to use mine and bake just for myself, which is something unusual for me. Glad you liked the "M". I like this font very much as it looks very similar to my handwriting.

Lovely! Are the letters handcut - they have incredible crisp edges.

 

Thank you, Leoni.
Yes, they are handcut. I used a sharpened bricolage cutter, after drawing the template with camera lucida. All tricks I learned after signin in this community. Fortunately they didn't spread in the oven and I also filed the edges a little with the zester tool. Another trick learned watching Julia's video tutorials and also Diane@Cookie Celebration LLC.

Haha, yes, but I don't eat decorated ones... too much sugar and food coloring These are beautiful! Love that font, too .

Yes, sugar and food colors are friends while decorating and can be enemies when eating! Glad you liked them

I really like your style, Manu. Partly because you seem to love bold colours--me, too!

 

Thank you, Maggie! I love bold colors especially on cookies. My favourite color is blue though and I always get dress in this color, go figure! The use of bold colors is something I learned from the Challenge Instambul, after being particularly drawn by the colorful tile patterns of the Mosque and the Topkapi. I love your cookies.
