Playing with Black and White

I’ve always loved the Henna style of cookie decorating.  Especially these from Cupookie, click here

So while decorating back to school cookies I had a few extra’s and decided to give it a whirl and this is what I came up with.

IMGP8009They aren’t perfect but with practice I’m sure I’ll get better.   I just played with designs.  Now if I had a KopyKake I’m sure I could make really nice cookies (hint hint Rob :))

I had a few people ask me about getting black black, so here it is!

Tip: Getting black, black!

  1. Too get the black really black make it a day or two ahead of when you need it. I got mine to a dark charcoal colour and then when I went to use it, it was jet black.

  1. Well done-the contrast is perfect! Great presentation.

  2. Very nice job! It is fun to play with designs and let your imagination take over.

    Rob, if you read Karen's comments the KopyKake Projectors are still on sale at Madison Art Shop...:)

  3. I love the intricate design on these cookie! You have a very steady hand! Beautiful!

  4. These are beautiful! You definitely have a gift. And, I really appreciate your tip on getting icing black. I never would have thought of that. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

  5. What beautiful cookies, and what a great tip about black icing. I used to buy my colours ready made, but I now have a set of tints I can add to my own icing recipes so this tip will come in very handy! Thank you for sharing another wonderful post with the Gallery of Favorites.
