Well if Miss Gingey is so stingy she won't share her gingerbread house I've brought something to fix that. I spent the better part of yesterday baking the worlds biggest gingerbread cookie to share with everyone. If this makes no sense to you that's because it's Teapot Tuesday Challenge.
The cookie is 4 layers of cardstock finished just like the real thing, like all my cookies it's slightly burned, sugared with real sugar, and royal icing (Dreamweavers paste) piped on.
The pinecone is diecuts with white gel pen on the tips and glittered.
This should work for the fan club this month if you consider tartan to be stripes!!!! Any Scots out there
disagreeing with me?

Oh my, that has such a fantastic Scottish, Christmas feel to it. The cookie looks like the best all-butter shortbread, beautifully presented with the pinecone and greenery. What die did you use for the cone? I'm wondering about pre-ordering the new Tim Holtz pinecone die.
