I love these cookies, but I can't figure out how to do the moons. I thought they might be dots with a toothpick pulled through each side. But they're so perfectly shaped. Anybody have ideas?

Halloween section and the cookie set is called "witch craft."

It looks like she placed a yellow circle first then went back and
placed a black circle over the yellow, offset just a bit with a
smaller one. On a couple of the moons, you can just see some
of the yellow through the black if you look close enough. HTH

Oops just focused on the cape, but you can make it out on a few
of the ones on her dress, too.

I agree....yellow dot with a black dot piped on top of it, offset a little bit. I love doing dots this way, how they just fade down into the base icing and flatten out. icon_smile.gif

Michelle, so you do it while bottom layer is still wet? I was thinking that might be some sort of food-color stamp, but you're right, I can still see some yellow, or could the whole dot be a stamp, with only color on parts of it?

Yep, while still wet. Gotta be organized and have all your colors ready. Pipe your base color, then go back and do your yellow, then pipe on the black dot on top of the yellow to make the moon shape.

It's the little things in life that amaze, like making polka dots in royal icing. icon_smile.gif

Too funny! I was on that site this morning just for fun! I just love their cookies! The moon idea is great and I think the same thing that it is a yellow circle piped over immediately in black.

Thank you ladies! I just couldn't see it. I thought it was similar to making a heart by piping a dot and dragging a toothpick through it. Couldn't figure out how to get the perfect crescent shape. But this makes much more sense. Now I hafta go practice my dots! Thanks again! icon_biggrin.gif

I have decided that I'm gonna tell everyone my cookies are laced with gold so I can get her prices here in GA.

Think it'll work.

Her cookies are beautiful-I could hope mine turn out close to that.

Some of her custom cookies are $20-$30 PER cookie, with a 48 cookie MINIMUM!!!!! WOW!!!! That would be $960 to $1440 per batch.....and I feel bad when I have to charge more than $30 for a sheet cake

Has anyone smashed open the piggy bank to be able to taste these luxurious treats? I'm just wondering how sinfully delicious they are
