I wanted to share some of my favourite work from the past year after receiving the fabulous news of picking up nominations for the Royal Iced Cookie Artist of the Year and the Cookie Artist of the Year. As much as I love Royal Iced cookies, I also enjoy making fondant cookies occasionally (that said I don't own any embossers or debossers).

If you would like to vote for me (to vote you must live in Australia, New Zealand or Papua New Guinea).

Here are the cookies I made for the Fascination Down Under International Sugarart Collaboration.
As a lot of people think of the sun and the sand in Australia, I thought I would show a very different part of Australia. Here I have made a Tasmanian Devil sheltering in a hollowed log in the snow in winter. This was inspired by Aussie Ark, the largest conservation breeding program for the Tasmanian Devil in mainland Australia. Aussie Ark is located in Barrington Tops in New South Wales. The joeys that are born are kept in large enclosures with limited human interactions and are eventually released back into the wild in Tasmania and other parts of mainland Australia.

I have created 4 contoured cookies and joined them together to represent the hollowed-out log, and 2 flat cookies being the background and the Tasmanian Devil. All are decorated with Royal Icing and hand painted with diluted gel colours.

The rest of the fabulous works in this collaboration can be seen in the following page.
