The client asked for a reproduction of Jonathan’s artwork (a vibrant, signature piece in the silent auction at the White Linen Night last Saturday night) on 50 cookies. Here are the steps I followed:
Step 1: I drew the image on a paper grid representing the cookies.
Step 2: Then, I baked and iced the cookies.
Step 3: I created a sturdy cardboard display tray with Wilton cake boards, hot glue, a box cutter and a yardstick.
Step 4: Lastly, I “painted” the cookies with food color gel using my gridded drawing and Jonathan’s art on my laptop for reference. I used a black food color marker for the outlining…
I snapped this picture in my studio…ok, it’s my kitchen table… just before I started to paint the cookie…Let the fun begin!!
Here’s the cookie mosaic…
Ok, I forgot to take a picture until AFTER some of it had been eaten!!
