When I decorate sugar cookies, I love how they look right after the royal icing has been put on the cookie, while its still shiny and pretty before it has dried.
The cookies above became these below.
I made them for a baby shower. I used a brush embroidery technique but totally didn't come up with the design at all. These were inspired by these fabulous cookies from the Amber Spiegel blog. I first found her stuff through etsy and just love the stuff she makes. And I love how she paints with luster dust, so pretty!
My cookies aren't as perfect, but I'm still practicing.
