Any suggestions? My husband has asked me to make a cookie bouquet for one of his friends. I have made 3 cookie bouquets, but they were all fairly simple ones. He would like me to use a picture of the guys car to put on the cookie. ANY and all ideas are appreciated.

Can you make royal icng? Then color flow would be a good bet if you can come up with a simple design. If you want it more complicated, trace the image of the car onto rice paper and attach to royal icing covered cookie. Pipe on a little royal icing border to seal edges!

I have a FBCT on a large cookie in my photos. I don't know if it would work for a bouquet? But it is an idea..

Thanks so much for the suggestions. I am fairly new to decorating. I have attended Wilton Class 1 and hope to go back this fall to take the next level. Yes I have made royal icing and have had success decorating cookies with it. I would like to try to get more detail in the cookies for this bouquet. I am not familiar with rice paper. Can you tell me a little bit about it and where I might find it?

The large cookie idea is a good one. It would be much easier for me to do the picture my husband wants on a large cookie. I have been reading on here about FBCT and am anxious to try it.

I love this forum. I have learned sooo much from just reading everyone's questions and suggestions.

Cake Central is addictive, watch out! I buy rice paper at a cake decorating supply store, I don't know where else you'd find it. You can probably find it online if you type in "edible rice paper". I like to trace my outline with an edible marker, then give it a few minutes to dry. Mix up a tiny bit of color into 1/2 tsp of piping gel, then paint on, it'll be sticky, so let it dry for a while. Attach with the royal icing.

I just did this with some large cookies for 3 different scenarios.

I designed my logo/picture, traced it onto parchment paper and then on the back of the parchment tracing I piped a very fine line of black cookie outline icing. I then put the tracing onto the flat iced cookie surface, pulling it up quickly. It left a copy of the decoration very faintly outlined on the cookie. I then went back and outlined it again more evenly and filled it in.

I'm sorry no photos yet.

Thanks for all of your suggestions. My husband is still stuck on the cookie bouquet idea, so I guess that's what I'll have to go with. I might do some experimenting this week if I get a chance. Does anyone know if it would work to do my complete design in royal icing on a piece of waxed paper and then attach it to the cookie after it dries? I'm afraid it might be too heavy to stick?

Yes, you can do a royal icing decoration and apply it to the cookie using more royal. No doubt it will make the cookies heavier. A personal bias is that royal decorations are very hard and I prefer the softer texture of icing decorations if the decoration takes up a large part of the surface of the cookie.

Have fun!

I'm in the process of tracing the decoration onto waxed paper and filling it in. When the image dries I will attempt to glue it to the cookie with icing. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't break!!! Wish me luck. Thanks again for the suggestions. icon_smile.gif[/img]

I pipe them in RI on parchment paper and then transfer them. If it's a larger pic and they are allowed to dry completely you shouldn't have a problem moving them. Writing and thin designs are the ones I make double the amount of since they usually break.
