I have a client wanting this effect on cupcakes. I'm not even sure how they did it on the cookies. Any ideas/advise would be greatly appreciated!!

It looks like an edible image to me. The only way I can think to put it on a cupcake would be to apply the image to a fondant circle and apply to the top of the cupcake.

I'll be curious to see if anyone else has any ideas!

I would either get the stencil or the transfer sheet from GSA and then roll fondant, apply it to a whole piece of fondant and then cut circles as big as the cupcake. Then i would either pipe the monogram on royal icing or use tappits to cut the letters.

i think it is some type of drop method on to royal icing and then, using a toothpick, made to look like it has those lines on the side.I've seen pastry chefs use it to decorated plates with different sauces..i'm sure there is an edible image with that design to put on a cupcake.

I agree, if you look at the close-up photos that 7yyrt posted, the cookies look like they're decorated with royal icing using that method. Not sure what the method is called exactly...but I've seen it done with desserts.
