Here’s a time lapse video of how I made this cookie portrait of Why Don’t We’s album cover.

The process of creating portraits on a cookie is rather time consuming, as I’m sure you can imagine! This one took me about 8 hours (not including making the dough, baking the cookie, mixing the icing, and editing the video). I used Crystal Colors powdered food coloring mixed with alcohol (Read more about painting on royal icing in this post) in Charcoal for the shadows and Snowflake for the highlights.

It’s not easy creating this type of cookie, but so satisfying when it’s finished!

Now go listen to 8 Letters by Why Don’t We 🙂

I gave up my commercial kitchen and worked out of art studios, but all of that changed when we built the new cookie studio over the summer.

Once the studio was just about done, I applied for my Food Establishment License and waited patiently (not really) for over 2 months for my inspection. Just last week I passed my inspection and opened my little online shop!
