It looks like the decorator just took the same tip used in basketweave technique to stripe the eggs leaving a small space between each one, then sprinkled or dipped with the glitter.

I can see how could be the basket weave tip - but how do you think the edges are so clean? Do you think maybe they used the cookie cutter, again, to "clean up" the edges? I can't think of anything else...

I don't think these are done by Karen Cookies. The person's name is Kim and she owns a business called Sugar. She is an amazing artist. Wish she had a blog so we could learn from her.

Thanks, guys. For some reason I didn't get any reply notifications. Karen, I didn't know you were a member here - love, love, love your website and blog.

Is Kim a member of CC, or can someone link her website?

Thanks again!

Sorry, motherofgrace, I was on CC too early in the morning before my brain starting working, and made the assumption you were Karen. Don't mind me. icon_redface.gif

You can achieve the effect using a basket weave rolling pin on buttercream or fondant and then sprinkle them with snow dust.
