Is that a...gnome??

Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge - #2. It's actually come and gone. Winners announced. Awesome, awesome entries. I decided to go simple. Well, simple for me. And actually simple in comparison to a large majority of the entries! 

People stepped it up a notch for this one.

The challenge was to use shapes that were picked out at random by The Cookie Architect. One of which was a gnome! I decided to decorate mine, using a wet-on-wet technique. Then hand painting some black details on after they were dry. 

To see all the entries as well as the challenge details and fine print: Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #3

Butterflies, birds and flowers

This was a left-over. Had the cookie, had the colors... I didn't actually like it. Reminded me of orange camouflage. I almost didn't even take a picture of it. BUT, in the end, obviously, I did photograph it. And then ate it very quickly - as a punishment for not looking the way that I intended. ;)

Thank you!!

The black outlines are painted on with black food coloring and a paint brush. Good luck on the wedding cookies!

Quoting Shawna Everett:
I absolutely love this set. You are one of the very best , most unique cookiers out there! One question: The black outlines. It looks like a combination of maybe food marker and tiny little brush? Or is it all a tiny little brush? I am going to do something for a wedding, and I might try this technique with dark blue on a ivory cookie. Love it!!!!!
(oh, and you're much too hard on yourself. The last flower is adorable too)
