Project Description

Choose a pattern, design, or quote that inspires you.  A greeting card or invitation can conjure great inspiration allowing you to pull elements of the design to incorporate in the overall theme for the party.  Utilizing the techniques we learned in class, sketch out your own design on a piece of paper and practice your technique to develop the muscle memory.  You will then do your finished piece on either a royal icing-covered smooth cookie (such as a sugar cut-out) or on a fondant-covered cake/cupcake.  Make sure to think through the size of your edible canvas.  If it is a cookie or cupcake, and you've chosen a large pattern, practice incorporating all the elements you want to be on your design in the small space.  Remember to use food coloring GEL, not the liquid. 

For an 8 inch cake, you have about a 26 inches circumference of edible canvas.  

A round sugar cookie will be anywhere from 2.5-4 inches.
