As I mentioned, Marlyn from Montreal Confections has been proposing challenges for her cookie-followers to work on their own. Here is the assigned task for the month of April.
That was it, my friends. Two shapes. A few colors. Go to work.
After much mental back and forth, hyperventilation, monologues around the house, I came up with a flower composition to use all colors. Had a few issues with the fine lines, but other than that, I am reasonably satisfied with my cookie set…
It all started by planning the petals around the center, and adding one leaf, making it easier to incorporate the electric green…
Once the cookies were baked and the colors mixed, the fun began… Flooding the different components and adding some wet on wet for the center.
For the final details, everything had to set for a few hours, and the colors mixed in piping consistency. I hit the dark green so well that I spent a few minutes doing a short version of the Happy Dance.
Look at those green lines! Don’t you love them? I thought so.
All that was left was some colorful piping to use the other colors, and tie the whole design together.
I really love these little challenges because they force me to do something on my own. Yet another thing to love about cookie decorating. Getting out of your comfort zone to explore the universe of colors and shapes.
Thank you, Marlyn!
