I finally have a cookie! My saga is long so feel free to skip it. When nursery rhymes was chosen, I knew exactly what I was going to do. A long time ago my children would actually let me choose their Halloween costumes and make them. One year they were little bo peep and her sheep. I was going to make this cookie out of their picture with royal icing.(which I had never used before).Sat, I was finally caught up enough to dig out the picture, yes that can be cut to cookie shape. Scanned and adjusted it to the size I needed. Sunday, I now have cookie dough in fridge for tomorrow and royal icing. Monday evening cut out cookie using my template (this is going to be so cute), bake and I'm ready to go. This is where the saga begins, you need to be able to draw
. I can't, not even a straight line. I am not doing an edible image this WILL be in royal icing. I find a coloring book page online and simplify my cookie. Still can't draw. Ok, they do transfers with buttercream(not done that either) why not with royal? Now I know, they crack and crumble when you pull them off the sheet. I am still trying to figure out how to the picture on the cookie, when I pull in the garage and lo and behold, my overhead projector sitting on the shelf. Now we are on to something. (this is not a cake projector it one I used to paint on my walls). I drag it upstairs and that is where my husbands finds us, me with a very heavy projector held over my head and my son underneath with a piece of paper trying to find a spot where the cookie will not be 5 feet tall and you can still see the outline. What ARE you doing? asks he. I am trying to get this picture on a cookie says I. Isn't that why you had to have that printer, because you can't draw? Mouth drops to floor, is this man a genuis or what? (did I mention I am blonde?) So here is my cookie, (and inspiration picture), it is rbc with edible image outline filled in with royal.
