I decided to give you a Valentine’s gift of beautiful cookies; made by a talented cookie and cake artist
Diane Drake from Drakegore
Diane has been decorating cookies for several years, when I stumbled upon her work on Flickr, I was mesmerized by it instantly. Every time she posts photos of her cookie creations I’m in awe; I love Diane’s approach to cookie decorating, my favorite is the elegance that radiates from her edible artworks, she incorporates wet on wet techniques with delicate piped designs using striking colors, creating a unique piece of art, truly a joy to see. Diane is known to be using geometric cookie cutter shapes for her cookies, one of her favorites is a rectangle shape cutter.
She is among those cookie artists using glace icing, mastering this medium just like another amazing cookie artist Pam from Cookie Crazie.
Diane’s artistic approach to cookie decorating landed her a place in the well known Magazine.
