Chinese New Year – Year of the Dragon

Posted on January 22nd, 2012 in Cookies

Tomorrow is the Chinese New Year and this year is the year of the Dragon! The Dragon occupies the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac, it is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion. If you would like to learn a little more just click here. Well now that I gave you a little background let me show you how I made the cookie.

First you are going to bake and cool your cookies and prepare your royal icing in black, red, yellow, green and white.

I decided to use a rectangle cookie for this particular design.

Then you will insert the image into the Kopykake projector.

Outline your cookie with black royal icing. I used a PME tip size 1.5.

Alternating with yellow and red royal icing flood your cookie.

With green and white royal icing flood the eyes. With white royal icing flood the horns

And the final step with a Wilton tip # 16, pipe the border.

Here is my finished cookie… Happy Year of the Dragon!

Thank you for stopping by & stay sweet!
