Frodo reading the Red Book. The last of the Christmas cookies to be decorated, and a Secret Santa gift for Sibynelle over at CoE.
Gingerbread dough and chocolate icing.

You really captured his looks, I think. It must be hard drawing with chocolate:)

Thank you! It's not really hard to draw with chocolate, but there's no way to cover up a wrong line, so it's rather caution-requiring. ;)

How did you get this on a cookie!

Using a toothpick and chocolate icing. Takes some careful work, but the result is more plastic than a normal drawing, and as a bonus also edible. ;)
Thank you for commenting and faving!

His face looks perfect (and the hair - very hobbitlike, being so curly :) ). Very, very good and tasty looking.

Thank you very much! ^_^ I've discovered that chocolate is way better for drawing curly hair than pencils. And his face was heavily inspired by Elijah Wood's portrayal of Frodo, which was to me perfect. :love:
Thank you so much for the praise! :blushes:

Oh, sweet!

As usual, I'm amazed at what you can do with cookies and chocolate. The shading is pretty cool!
I wonder, though - do you look at the cookie and then decide what fits the shape, or do you have an idea and then choose the cookie which shape will fit the most?

Both. :) That is, when there's an especially round and shapeless piece of leftover dough after flattening, I keep folding and flattening it with a rolling pin until there's a vaguely interesting shape which I look at and think 'Oh look, this can be a tip of a hat/ a horse's head/etc.'. And then I come up with the entire image.
I tried planning to draw some Noldorin portraits this Christmas, and failed miserably, as the dough just wouldn't cooperate. ;) So I had a hobbit, a wizard+horse, and two humans for a change. :D

Sounds fun. XD You surely have a wonderful imagination.

Also I wonder, do you ever eat them later?

We do, if Gran doesn't claim them for her collection of memorable cookies, which she usually does. Poor Frodo here is one of the last remaining unclaimed cookies this year, so we're deciding at the moment whether to eat him or not. He'd sure be crunchy. ;)

LOL! Does she eat them later on her own? How long can it be kept?

I doubt she eats them, rather stashes them away to show off to distant relatives and friends... You know how grandmothers can be. :D

Gingerbread cookies (at least our family's superthin cookies, I don't know about the other recipes) can be kept intact for years if stored in a dry, dark place; but the taste fades after about 5 weeks (starts getting flour-y), two months at the most. Plus they eventually grow rock-hard after several months, and are only good for showing around.

Yes, I know. :D
But doesn't the chocolate paint get mouldy?
Reply

noleme Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013
Ours hasn't gone mouldy as far as I recall, although we use different kinds (usually cake icing); perhaps it's because of the storing. If it did... all the more reason for eating all cookies then! :D
