Cookie artists like Jill Weinstein (sp) of Jill FCS does the most unique wet on wet cookies. If you could ever get her to share her knowledge, it would be amazing!

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll put her on a list of potential interview/tutorial candidates.

I'm not sure what the technique is called, so I'll try to describe.  It is a build-up of royal icing to form a picture, often a character or floral arrangement.  So you would have to draw the image on the cookie and then start making the royal icing fill-ins.  I think I could figure out how to do characters, but the 3-D build-up for floral arrangements looks more challenging, since they have specific shapes.

(ROUGH TRANSLATION: A good source for the wet-on-wet technique)

 

Thanks for sharing the above link. Perhaps Cookie.Deco.Fun would be interested in making tutorials for this site (the question posed above). I'll consider the recommendation, for sure!

As for the photo of hers that was posted here, I deleted it, as we do not allow the posting of others' photos to any of the areas of this site, without first securing permissions. Thanks again!

I greatly appreciate all the resources on this site and have yet to discover all of them. Saying that to say I checked what tutorials I'd like to see unsure if there are any on site currently. As I am just at the beginning of my cookie journey I can learn from all tutorials but the simplier the better

Yes, tons of tutorials on the site already. Just look under the Blog under any of the tutorial categories - we have collections organized by beginner, intermediate and advanced. Have fun exploring!

Hi Julia! 

I would like to ask if the 3-D technique could be considered for a tutorial. I notice many cookies that have a lovely raised, 3-D effect such as ruffles for dresses or onesies, or flowers. Or any project in which there is a raised effect. 

Thanks!! Have a great week!!!
