We haven't made cookies in such a long time. We have a whole bunch of ideas, but we need to practise to get comfortable again. We like to use wax paper cones for piping the icing. We found the trickiest bit of the whole process may just be getting the consistency of the icing right. And getting the colours right. And, now, working around the humidity. We dragged out our old food dehydrator. It seems to do the trick.
We had a general idea of what we wanted to 'paint',
but we didn't worry too much about making all the cookies identical.
Spontaneous is more fun!
Here's the sketch:
These are big cookies. About 4 inches wide!

Have a sweet day!
