I want to make some cookies for a friend of mine, she loves elephants and I would love decorate like this http://www.flickr.com/photos/rosey_sugar_palace/3759747701/

I love the way she made this lace pattern! Would somebody, explain me how to make this details?

Thanks

You just pipe the details onto the white or dark icing that has already kinda set up.

But what I wanted to say is raise the trunk up for good luck.

Stiff icing and a tip 1, just my guess.

Let the first coat of royal icing dry completely and then use a semi-stiff royal icing for the string work.

and just to add to your confusion. I would wait for the base layer of RI to dry completely and then use thinned out RI I've found that if the RI is too stiff it doesn't like to stay on the cookie but hangs on to the decorating tip for dear life!

I use thickened glace. I like it a lot better than RI and I think that it tastes better and doesn't get quite so rock hard.

Here's another idea for an uniced cookie.

Thin some cookie dough down with water or milk to piping consistency.

Thinly thinly pipe on the detail and bake. Viola.

It spreads a touch but it also works great if you want it to.

You'd wanna use a cookie that has a nice flavor already if you do this.

Very cool idea. Did you learn this somewhere, or is this one of your more recent experiments?

Learnt it in a bakery.

But all bad grammar aside--it's so easy to just dot on an eye. Perfect for simple designs. So easy to stack 'em up right after they cool. Makes life much simpler with gingerbread cookies & stuff.

There's a book out of this, Also on how to pipe the cookie dough itself. A really old book.
