Medieval Illuminated Initial Cookies

5/20/2012 Posted In , , Edit This 1 Comment »

I wanted to share with you some Medieval manuscript cookies I made for my friend and colleague, Risa Bear, creator of Renascence Editions. I chose historiated initials from several manuscripts, printed them on edible paper with edible ink, attached them to square cookies and gave them gold edges. Who says love of literature and art can't fill a belly?! 

Updated to add (5-25-12): I've gotten countless requests for these wafer papers; they are available for purchase here. Happy baking! :)

Updated to add (5-28-12): I've added a step-by-step "How-To" for these cookies here.

 Updated to add (5-29-12): Overwhelming response to these wafer papers—I've run out of edible ink! I'm slated to get a delivery of more ink on June 1st and, when I do, I'll activate the Etsy listing again. Thank you, everyone! :)

 Updated to add (6-1-12): Have ink & Etsy listing active again. Thanks for your patience!
