I made, like, 10 dozen cookies in one weekend recently so that I could get practice using different cookie decorating techniques. This is one of them! I learned this brush embroidery technique originally from cookie decorating goddess Sweet Ambs, and so yeah, it was a little (hmmmmm, a LOT) humbling to post these pics knowing that you could easily compare them to hers, but whatevs, I ain’t no pro yet, and that’s why I am here, to share the journey with you WHILE I become a pro.
These cookies came out quite beautiful, if you ask me, and the best part is, there’s no rule on how perfectly rounded your petals need to be, because no flower is perfectly symmetrical in real life! In fact, the messier the better, in my opinion!
Here’re the basic how-to steps:
I think these would be absolutely gorgeous in a white and off-white color combo for a dreamy, classy vintage wedding. I would love to make cookie place cards with brush embroidery flowers in the background with a beautiful script font for the name. So dreamy! I hope this gives you some inspiration! You should definitely try it, it would be hard to make these look bad!
Once upon a time I made a completely fake wedding cake that looked completely REAL! This was a while back, so I need to dig up pictures. I should ask the bride if any pro pics were taken of it! It meant a lot for her to keep her cake as a keepsake, while she fed her guests an array of other types of sweets, so there was something for everyone! Anyway, I did this technique on a few tiers of the white cake with a cream colored “frosting.” Stay tuned for that post, because the more I think about it, the more I know I HAVE to share that with you guys!
What types of projects have you made using brush embroidery?
