I really wanted to try this technique and participate in this challenge as I have been busy and couldn't able to contribute for some time.  Didn't have time to practice enough hence couldn’t able to achieve what I really wanted.

I was really wondering how Christine makes such an amazing creations using this technique..it's magical. 💫
First I decided to make a 3D cable bridge as my entry. Though the aim was to make a 3D bridge due to rush some of the bridge parts were broken while baking. So I decided to convert it to a 2D bridge as I was running out of time.

I flooded the background sections using flood consistency RI.

Once it completely dried, I piped the bridge then the lines step by step by using medium consistency RI.

Cookie size 23 cm × 13 cm

Strings were broken many times. It was a bit difficult task for me. But I love this technique and hope to practice more and apply this technique to my cookies in the future.

Thank you so much Julia @Julia M. Usher and Christine @Sweet Prodigy for the wonderful challenge. ❤

This is definitely out-of-the-box thinking! All of the lines make complete sense with regards to perspective, and your strings are layered in such perfect order. I can only imagine that there must have been some planning involved (and trial and error?). Also, I'm glad that you were able to participate in the challenge. This is such an excellent entry!

Thank you so much for your wonderful words dear Carol. @Cookies Fantastique comments are always encouraging. Ohh.. Sad to hear about your foot injury and hope and wish for a speedy recovery. Look forward to see your amazing creations soon. Love and hugs.❤❤❤

Thank you so much for your sweet words my dear cookie friend @Kanch J ! I hope to complete my "entry" (non-entry in my case ) this weekend. Yay I just love your bridge ❤️❤️ Hugs...

Ooooh dear Kanchana, I absolutely in Love with your Stringwork cookie!!!! It's really sooo great and a super idea to represent the cables of the bridge as stringwork !! I don't just imagine it, because you had to take into account the "intermediate parts" of the bridge, which cables must appear behind and which must appear in front! Really absolutely great Kanchana !! @Kanch J

Thank you so much Christine. ❤ @Sweet Prodigy Observing your amazing stringworks, I was looking forward to have this technique in PBP challenge one day. I'm so glad that you include it at this time.


But unfortunately I got so busy for first few weeks and couldn't even think about the challenge. Last few days I really wanted to do something but I was running out of ideas as all were taken. So this is the trial and error and final. This is the only cookie I practice to pipe lines of the bridge. Had to remove many times and redo. I did lines by looking at an original photo of a bridge. Didn't get enough time to sketch on the paper as well.

Kanchana, this is soooooo good!  I love your entry.  Who else could think about this design?  Wow!!!

Thank you so much Ryoko. ❤ @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave. I was stuck with many designs but finally concluded with this as all other ideas were taken already.🙂

I absolutely love your bridge dear Kanch @Kanch J !!! You did a fabulous job of creating this intricate intersection lines of a bridge for  your entry. Incredible my dear cookie friend ❤️ Hugs... I, too, love this technique!! I've been working on an entry for some time but had a foot injury and couldn't do anything for 2 weeks. So...I missed the deadline! Ugh. Such is life though. Fabulous work my dear friend
