  10. My God, that is the prettiest cookie I have ever seen. I have wanted to try one stroke painting on my cookies but cant seem to figure out what to use with the food colorings to get them to blend together. Any suggestions??

  13. Maria, when using food coloring as paint, I add a few drops of vodka to thin the colors, which allows them to blend nicely. Thank you for your comment!

  20. How thinned down is the royal icing you're using? And how do you get the gold color. Once it's dry do you paint on with gold luster dust/vodka. Or do you pipe on already colored gold? Thanks for the video tutorial - your cookies are so amazingly beautiful!!

  21. Thanks Holli! The royal icing for the brush embroidery is actually not thinned down at all. You'll need a stiff icing so it keeps its shape. As for the gold icing, I paint the gold on after I've piped the design and let it dry. I use Wilton's pearl dust in gold mixed with vodka. Glad you enjoyed the video!

  25. Hi,
    How beautiful.....I couldn´t wait to try it out...it´s very difficult....you are truely very talented!!! How stiff is your icing? Do you wet your brush alot before dragging it through the icing....My friend and I were trying until 10pm last night to do it.....We love your work over here, you are the talk of our bakery classes!!!Regards from Spain----XX

  26. Hi Mary-Rose! Thank you so much! The icing I use is quite stiff. I don't add any water to it after it comes out of the mixing bowl. The brush is damp, but not too wet. You don't want to have excess water puddling on the cookie. Thank you for your comment!
