ok, so she says she actually did them LOL. I have worked in a bakery for years and we do some cookies, mostly cakes that are sheet cakes but any kind of cookie we have done there is no way I can see of a non-printed way to make it look like that.
We just got one of those printers that print on paper you can eat and I think thats what she did was print it and stick it on there or something. Those printers are real fancy, we even charge extra for them! So I'm, not a total hick LOL.
just because you can't, doesn't mean someone else can't
I can't do sculptures but Michelangelo did "David"
I can't do portraits but Da Vinchi did "The Mona Lisa"
I can't design buildings but wow -- look at the stuff Frank Lloyd Wright did
I can't write novels but J.K. Rowling sure gave us a set didn't she.
Those ARE real -- if you look closely you can see the brush strokes, the oopsies.
and YES, as others have said, painting on fondant is a REAL thing you can do. Tho' having tried it once -- I'll leave that for pros like CakeDiva to do
and remember -- no commercial bakery could ever take the time nor charge enough to create those kind of one-of-a-kind, custom made, hand-crafted cookies.
and if you think that's outrageous....
well look at this one --
painting with BUTTERCREAM!!!!
