I made this cookie set for the Power of Music sugar art collaboration, and my theme is Prince’s “When Doves Cry”. I wasn’t planning on choosing a song from Purple Rain, and as a major fan of his and knowing that he has so many albums to choose from, I wanted to do something different… I ended up choosing a song from Purple Rain anyway. The reason why I chose this song was because it was the first Prince song I heard at the young age of 14. When I saw his promo video back then, my heart skipped a beat, and I’ve been a fan of his ever since. I got most of my inspiration from the album cover and the unique purple record. Additionally, the costumes and doves in the promo video were the basis for most of the cookie designs.
