Let me take you down, ’cause I am going to….
Strawberry Fields! Cookies are real!
Ok I better stop or things might degenerate beyond belief. This was a set designed by Tunde, and it has her unique style for sure… I loved making them and hope you find them as adorable as I did… To join her cookie club and follow all the tutorials she shares on a regular basis, click here.
Once again she makes beautiful designs with a minimal number of colors but this set relied heavily on Royal icing transfers instead. Tiny strawberries and flowers made in advance, then glued to the cookie. The small leaves were piped in the end. Here some of the steps to bring this set to life.
I won’t say that the cookies are beginner’s level, because two techniques require a bit of practice: the basket weave and fine lines for the flower pot. But those could be simplified, the basket weave can be made using a stencil, for instance. Still I believe that the only way to improve is to challenge yourself, and sets like this are a perfect opportunity.
I made the plaque cookie very large, but it will work on smaller frames also. And I used the projector to write the text because I have a hard time centering the words and making them uniform in size.
Once again, the kind of cookies that gives a smile when you see them…
