A Cookie Mosaic

Jonathan's art

Art by Jonathan Hill

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…
