There have been a few babies born in my neighborhood so far this year, and there are two more arriving soon. When I was planning a “Congratulations” cookie set for one family this spring, I came across an inspiration stick person cookie on Pinterest made by Flour Box Bakery. I thought it was adorable, and wanted to use the idea. I do not own a Kopy Kake, although I was toying with the idea of investing in one to “advance” my hobby skills. However, with tax and shipping, it would be over $300.00 CDN. Hmmmm…. Then I read about an iPad app called Camera Lucida, which only cost $4.99! The app was originally designed for artists, but is also used by cookiers. I thought I would give it a try. I had my son sketch a representation of the family in question, including their beloved dog. I took a picture of the sketch and used the iPad app to transfer the image by hand using a food safe marker to the dry, flooded cookie. It was soooo simple and I was thrilled with how it turned out! I have also used it to place lettering on cookies and, so far, it is meeting all my needs as a hobbyest, while saving money and storage space!
I am a Royal-Icing-decorated-cookie hobbyest/addict, who works part-time in Healthcare, and full-time tending to my husband, three school-aged children and one lovely Barbet (French Water Dog). I live in rural Nova Scotia, Canada.
