One of my amazing friend sent a gorgeous diary for Claudia, all the way from Korea... thank you Aunty Danbee ;-)
This diary has gorgeous pictures of princesses from all over the world. I was told that they are originally paintings from a known Artist in Korea. So when I saw the princesses i immediately thought "wow they are beautiful, i wonder if we can turn them into a cookie?"
Okay so maybe not many of you will think that, but as a cookier my mind works differently lol :P
So we have 2 cookies to play with and from the diary I personally like Miss China & Miss Vietnam, so we decided to try and make those two princesses from the book :)
Here is the progress photo of what we did to create Miss China :)
Start with outlining the shape of the princess in the cookie. Then we start with her face, give it a few minutes to dry a bit and then add the neck and arms. After the skin colour icing are dry add the hair with brown icing.
Lastly add all the details into her headband, add the earrings and the pattern into her red top.
When the icing for her hat is dry, use a fine tip edible marker to put more details into her hat, and finish off the brown bow on her top as well.
So we decided to leave out the strap from hat, coz we thought that if we make a mistake with it the princess might look like she is being strangled with a black strap LOL :P
Anyway, it was a great fun as our first try at hand painting a cookie, I can see that this is more of a Claudia's thing as she loves painting and doing these kind of free-hand stuff. I will just leave the artistic part to my little lady and I'll just stick to decorating with icing lol ;-)
