Okay, okay, I know this cookie doesn't fit the challenge requirements, as its focus isn't imprinted icing (plus, as site host, I can't enter my own challenge)! But . . . I wanted to show you what came of my recent dabbling in imprinted icing. I made these cookies for a class I taught at The Bake Fest, a large virtual event about two weeks ago. In most cases, the lacy royal icing shards were made using @SugarVeil mats to emboss the icing. I also used the background stencil in my "Thank You" Prettier Plaquesβ„’ stencil set for the airbrushed/stenciled berry and floral elements, and First Impressions molds for the molded cookie elements. The ribbons are airbrushed modeling chocolate made with my recipe. Other variations are shown below, some of which use contoured imprinted icing (pieces that are curvy):

How gorgeous! It looks like you attached broaches to cookies, they are absolutely perfect! And I love that you made edible ribbon rather than just using actual ribbon. So creative!

Thanks again! I love modeling chocolate for ribbons, as it's so smooth and bends so gracefully!

Oh how gorgeous Julia!!! I haven't been here for over a week due to hubby's hospitalization. I've missed SO much and have a lot of catching up to do. I love the intricacy and delicacy of the design. Beautiful work as always ❀️❀️❀️ Hugs...

Thanks, but, more importantly, what happened to hubby? I hope he is okay by now. XOXO
