Has anyone made Luna Lovegood's eyeglasses cookies? I actually only need one -- about 6-8" wide. I'm making an LL cake -- a 9" x 13" open book, topped with scarf, stars, wand, and glasses. The scarf and wand will be fondant, and the stars will be cookies. It would be easiest to make the glasses fondant too, but a cookie would look so much better. I have a great dough recipe for big cookies (I've made 6" turkey  Thanksgiving placecards for years), so I'd love to have a discussion about this idea. I have a pattern for the glasses, but that's the easy part. For instance, I'm thinking that I could make lenses out of isomalt . . . Then, there's the decoration on the frames. I'm thinking of marbled icing, or maybe just crazy glitter. I can't figure out a way to get those little circles onto the frames.

Thinking usually gets me in trouble, so have any of you played with this? Thanks!

Never made them, but there are so many possible ways to do the pattern on them, all depending on the amount of relief/dimension you want, the time you have, etc. I could see superimposed wet-on-wet dots working . . . or laying edible sequins into wet icing (as you alluded to) . . . or, probably the fastest approach, using a stencil, if you have the ability to cut a stencil or have a custom one made. Best of luck.
