The UNO card is simple enough, but it translates differently onto a cookie... I looked online to get some inspiration, and maybe some pointers, but I only found a small photo of one that I kinda liked, but I still had to figure out how the different steps. Remember when I said I have a love/hate relationship with Royal Icing? Well, it was the answer to the equation of how to make the card work as a cookie- different royal icing consistencies.
There were three consistencies and also carefully selected tips for the best results - and by carefully selected, I mean my best guess!
ICING the cookie---
Step 1: White outline and oval
Step 2: Black outline of the number 1
Step 3: fill with color
Step 4: small white number 1
So all in all, after getting those steps straightened out, it really wasn't that hard after all - it was repetitive... and time consuming... but not hard. And of course I made time-lapse videos - to be posted later, of course. ;) Enjoy the slideshow!
Here it is, the timelapse video of the cookies... So in the video it says that 52 cookies took about 4.5 hours to ice. What you didn't see was the time mixing the colors, organizing the piping bags, making sure we have the RIGHT CONSISTENCIES! so it did take a much longer time to complete these cookies than just the time showing the timelapse :)
AND the music on the video is from me and 3 other altos from the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir that i've sung with since 2005! We covered the Jones Sisters' You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else for a Choir Showcase to raise money to go on our European tour this summer. I hope you enjoy!
