Off to Middle-earth by noleme Off to Middle-earth by noleme
Last year's Celegorm and Huan make a re-appearance. On this cookie, they're sailing to Middle-earth on the Telerin ships, and are watching out for the shore.
Okay, I'm happy about how Celegorm turned out (how come I draw better hands in chocolate than when I'm using a pencil? :confused: ). On the other hand, my Huan looks kind of mongrel-ly. :( More bearlike than wolfhound-like; I know I messed up the paws, the muzzle, the throat (too horselike, argh =_= ), and the ears... they were meant to be flapping in the wind, but they're off too, too high up on the head, and too stiff-looking, like he's a terrier crossbreed or something. I'll have to work on that. :P

Also, early merry Christmas Gwen; I trust you still fangirl Celegorm? And no, this wasn't the secret Santa thing we have on CoE. :)

Quite easily, and ruthlessly. They're tasty, so we just tune the pretty design out, and bite. :D

Looks great (and tasty!)

You use toothpick to draw with chocolate, right? I usually use sugarpens for icing but it would be impossible to draw all those details with them.

Thank you!

Yes, I use toothpicks; flat ones for backgrounds and wood/fur/hair texture, and round pointy ones for fine lines. I have never used sugar pens - my family are partial to chocolate icing, so I stick to that. :) I wonder - how finely can one draw with a sugar-icing pen? Despite of what the Celegorm cookie image looks like, the cookie itself is actually only about half its size, and the rest of our cookies are usually pretty small. How thick is the line produced by the sugar pen?

There are also chocolate pens available with white, dark and milk chocolate.

The lines are quite thick, I think, compared to those you are making (especially those for fur or hair). I tend to draw tiny objects on the cookies like flowers or ladybugs, so it's possible to do, but you have less control on the final effect.

For example those dragons were drawn on a round gingerbread of size of a plate. Not a small cookie for sure ;)
