This month's theme is "Famous Couples" in honor of Valentine's Day. I really struggled with narrowing down my couple. I changed my mind several times but finally settled on Homer and Marge Simpson. I love them!
I haven't been feeling too well these days so I've been slacking on making tutorials. I promise to come up with some tutorials soon. The weather has been wreaking havoc on my body this year.
Of course, I had to utilize my Kopykake. I traced my image with a yellow edible marker and then went back and outlined with black royal icing. After I outlined the cookie I sat there and thought how can I simplify the process and avoid having to make more icing colors. A light bulb went off and I decided to just color them in with edible markers. I used a damp paintbrush to soften the lines and color a little. Overall I'm pleased with how it came out but I wish I had used my Wilton #1 tip instead of a PME #1 tip because PME tips are slightly bigger than Wilton ones. The outline is too thick but I'm trying not to be as critical of my work this year and find beauty in it. So I'd say it was a success.
Enough about my cookie. Head on over to Stephanie's post and see what she came up with. I think there's a rabbit and a girl named Jessica ;-)
Be sure to link up your famous couple creations below. You have the whole month of February to do so. Then be sure to come back next month for our next challenge "Spring Is in the Air". I love Spring so this ought to be fun.
