A little recap cookie related...

I met Zara @carouselselsel here on Cookie Connection last year when I posted a set of cookies for my friend Silvia. We talked in the comments to my clip and we then started this “tradition” of making cookies on our B-Days, togheter also with @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave. Each one of us makes virtual cookies for the other two on birtdays and we post them here on Cookie Connection where we all have met. I received wonderful cookies from them herehere and here and again here.
These are the cookies I made for Zara last year based on my favourite set of her.

This year I wanted to make something similar, keeping the concept of the cookie letter name and her colorful flowers, but then something wasn’t working, maybe the chocolate dough that could be seen in the letters and not anymore in the plaque made look the set weird to me. But the idea led me to make my recent “Manu” cookies and the monogram cookie for my granny.

So I decided to make instead the cookie below, more delicate, and I tried to make the roses as if they were embroidered rather than piping them with royal icing.

Happy Birthday again, Zara!

I am so glad you liked them, it was fun to make them. And also to surprise you, although this is becoming a “sweet” tradition. Have a wonderful day!

These are absolutely gorgeous!!! I LIKE EM!!!!

Thank you! That lace is very versatile. Actually the name was supposed to be piped in a different color, but I realized that I kept piping when I was already in the middle of the name!😊
