Art Museum Inspired Ginger Cookies
This is my Edward Hopper's "Morning in a City".
After they got a little hard, and I had a disastrous time trying to put plastic wrap over the baking sheets they were on, and I realized it might be better to paint the fondant after the cookies were made. I made the ginger sugar cookies recipe from The Gourmet Cookie Book. The recipe is originally from the 1930s, and it is not dry or hard like a lot of gingerbread recipes. We tested it out and it wasn't too soft to hold up to the frosting either. I rolled out the dough and cut it in squares.
Here's my Sol Lewitt Wall Drawing cookies.
Grant Wood's "Death on the Ridge Road".
This is a very fun way to decorate baked goods. The possibilities are endless - a family portrait, a cupid for Valentine's Day - anything you can think of to paint. My only advice is to wait until they dry to put plastic wrap over them, and do not use too much vodka to thin the color - just a few drops at a time. Now I am very excited to see what the rest of my coworkers have made!
