Frosty Handpainted Hare

Fondant icing and lustre dust leaves, handpainted hare

Last year my contribution to Killer Zebra's charity calendar was 'January'. (You can buy the 2019 calendar here, to which I contributed 'August'.)

I decided to create one entire scene out of royal icing on a big old slab of cookie. The cookie was pretty much superfluous to be honest. I had great fun spreading stiff royal icing on with a palette knife, and adding texture to the wet icing with sugar. Once dry, I piped the copses of trees and the outline of the hare in liquid royal icing.

I painted just a few tiny details for the silver birch bark, and properly went to town on the hare. I like this frosty scene, but felt it needed something to make it more vibrant and striking. There's an old pack of gold fondant icing in my larder, that's been waiting for me to find a use. I rolled it out really thinly, cut leaf shapes with my cookie cutters and bent and shaped them by hand. I let them dry overnight in the dehydrator to hold their shapes, then liberally dusted them with autumn leaf coloured lustre dusts, then piped the edges with a little white icing before dipping gently in granulated sugar. These I kept seperate and moved around to try different effects in the photos, seeing as this project was about the end photo, to be sent for inclusion in the calendar. But I like the effect of the leaves - they make a very simple decoration for a birthday or christmas cake.

Happy 2019 everyone

  6. I love it! I must say, you are very creative, just like my brother. He is also very expert in such types of art and always used to make such things, but due to some academic assignments, he has gotten busy with his assignments and is not able to make such things. Even, he needs an assignment help service from which he can distribute some of his assignments.

  13. The creative use of royal icing on the cookie slab sounds like a fun and unique project. I can imagine how the stiff royal icing and the added texture with sugar would create an interesting visual effect. The detailing of copses of trees and the outline of the hare with liquid royal icing must have added depth to the scene. Overall, it seems like a satisfying artistic experience. If students are busy with their jobs or other activities, they can consider hiring Business Management thesis writing services to assist them in writing their own thesis. These services can be really helpful in providing support and guidance throughout the thesis writing process.

  23. As much as I understand the need for assistance with assignments, it's important to approach academic tasks with integrity. Asking for guidance or clarification is great, but outsourcing your write my assignment for me entirely can undermine your learning process and the trust of your instructors. It's always best to put in the effort yourself and seek help when needed to ensure you're mastering the material and developing your skills
