I made gingerbead cookies a few years ago for a masquerade theme party a friend of mine had.
The cookie is flooded with a cream colour royal icing and coated in disco dust. You can see a larger version of this photo here.
Thanks to Peggy Porschen and her book, Beautiful Cakes, for the idea! I adore her work, and out of the many ‘sugar art’ decorating books I have, hers is definitely my favourite. She explains her steps so thoroughly, has great recipes, and her projects are mainly relatively easy to make.
