Admittedly, Julia took a risk with this cookie. Just take a look at the small stem-lets to which each flower or bud is attached. They were piped with the equivalent of a PME #00 tip and required ultra-precise placement to avoid breakage. (One false move, and shattered royal icing – and cookie dreams – would have been the outcome!) Fortunately for the cookie world, Julia isn’t one to run away from a challenge, and she devised a method to make these daring details work. (Basically, slide the pieces – don’t pick them up – as much as possible!) For more details about this stunning cookie project, check out Julia’s YouTube video.
