Manu,    A very impressive and beautiful cookie.    

How did you create the form on which you created the mask?

Thank you for the mini tutorial, it's one for my files.

 I am not quite sure if you would like to know about the design or the curved shape of the mask. I'll try to answer to both things.

-Cover the design* template with an acetate sheet/wax paper and tape both on a flat surface. Trace the mask with RI as you would normally do for any other RI transfer.

-Now you need to tape the acetate sheet with the piped mask on a cylindric object, so that once it has dried it will have a nice curved shape like a real mask. You could use a cylindric flower pot, a saucepan, a bottle or whatever you will find at home. For my mask (14cm x 6cm) I used a flower pot (diameter 15 cm). It was a nice curve, not too much curved not too flat. Let it dry at list one day and then coat airbrush, or silver spray, or handpaint silver extended luster (like I did). Let again dry and then decorate as you like. The more are the roses the less fragile it will be the structure of the mask. Once it has dried remove the transfer from the "cylinder" and before getting rid of the acetate sheet/wax paper check that the icing has dried also on the back side. If not the mask will break very very very likely ...

*design: The mask in this clip is my own design, while I didn't designed the other two masks in the other clip. For those two I made a Xerox of two light cardboard masks a friend had and I used that Xerox as a template to freely trace with royal icing. There weren't tags or prints as references, so I couldn't give attribution.

Thank you for your compliment, I just started to decorate with royal icing last November after watching Julia's videos about RI consistency and decorating techniques... and I am struggling to improve and trying new ideas... because I like it.

I hope I answered and that you didn't get lost in "my English".

Manu,  your English is just fine, in fact it's very good. 

It's hard to believe that you only started to decorate cookies last November!  You obviously have a remarkable talent.  And you're already doing delicate 3D work.  That's more than impressive. 

 Thank you for posting the instructions to create this wonderful cookie.  Very clever.

Pip
