If you’re wondering how the lanterns on these cookies are so dimensional, it’s because Julia first piped royal icing transfers in lantern shapes (using her Chinese New Year Dynamic Duos™ foreground stencil as a tracing guide). Once those transfers were dry, she airbrushed the lantern patterns on their poofy tops! How ingenious! Also to note: this great cookie shape was made with Julia’s Genie Plaque cutter.
