Today’s cookie is a little bit of a departure from the others I’ve done in this series. Oddly enough, I was inspired to make this forest landscape based on the way the flooding came out. My icing was a little too thick when I applied it. so when it dried it had this very streaky look about it. After I applied some thinned black with a square tipped brush, the lines became more prominent and I went with the inspiration.
This technique is by no means new, but I continued by piping the tree stumps with Tip #3 after the black layer dried Then I took a mostly dry square brush and applied multiple layers of black, purple, orange and yellow, letting each layer dry in between. This was a fun cookie to make in part because there’s no real right or wrong to it. It’s just whatever suits your fancy to get the desired look you want!
