"That which we call a rose, by any other name would
smell taste as sweet." - Shakespeare (sort of)
Don't you just love the colours, and the polka dots?
I started off with lots of wet-on-wet polka dot bases, most of which I didn't end up using (who knew how hard it would be to do polka dots in straight lines?) then moved on to some paisleys, I love paisleys.
But when I got to the flower shaped cookies, they just weren't looking right, so I decided to ignore the daisy shape and do a rose instead. They looked great! Before I knew it, there were roses on almost all of my cookies!
I guess I had some of Arty McGoo's recent cookies in the back of my mind, because some of mine definitely resemble hers - thanks Liz!

Those paisley ones are amazing. How long does it take you to ice one cookie?? So talented.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Elaine xxDelete
Hard to say, because I do a little on one, then set it aside to harden, work on a few others, then go back for the next layer. Probably around 2-7 minutes each, depending on how detailed they are. I am getting faster and faster though, my first few cookies took much longer, and didn't look very good!
Love the colors! Your cookies are so pretty, looking forward to the tutorial.ReplyDelete
