** NEW! LIVE ONE-ON-ONE MENTORING SESSIONS WITH JULIA ON SUPERPEER! ** MORE INFO HERE: https://superpeer.com/juliamusher! Hi, everyone! I’m back to demo another of my very cool Dynamic Duos™ stencil designs! This one is called “Slice of Paradise”, and while it’s certainly true to its name in depicting a tropical paradise of flowers and birds, “dynamic” and “duos” are really the operative words. You see, like all of my Duos™ designs, it consists of TWO complementary sets whose elements can be MOVED AROUND to create scads of cookie designs! When coming up with my Duos™ designs, I often take cues from the seasons or approaching holidays. But, in this case, I was in desperate need of a tropical leaf stencil to use as a backdrop for my recent hibiscus cookies and so I decided to do the most expedient thing and design my own. I hope you enjoy these sets, both on their own (as shown in this video) and incorporated into other cookie designs (as in my hibiscus video, link below). In addition to showing you how to use these two sets on cookies, this video explores contoured fondant appliqués as a way of bringing added dimension to cookies!
