The Western Expanse

Editor's Choice - Mar 14, 2019

I created this cookie for That Takes The Cake in Austin, Texas this past year. Happy to say that it placed 1st in the Master’s/Professional division for cookies! This cookie was 12.5 inches x 10.5 inches and was displayed on a solid chocolate stand I molded. The cookie was covered in black royal icing on the back and white royal icing on the front center. The outside was covered in Satin Ice fondant and the flowers, leaves, and vines were hand cut and textured. Then the entire thing was dusted with powdered color to bring out the details.
Then I used powdered colors and cocoa butter to paint the actual painting. After the painting was finished, I used confectioner’s glaze as a varnish!

You can see more in process pictures up on my Instagram or Facebook too!

Supplies: cocoa butter fondant royal icing chocolate reuse a mold confectioners glaze

Tools: xacto knife paint brushes leather impression mat
