Below is a little sneak peak as to how I start this whole process, as you will see, I outline the character in black...and yes, this is all by hand, no kopycake (which I would LOVE to own one day...maybe Dec. 25, 2010?). It takes a bit of time, but the end result is soooo worth it!
and now for some bananas...for some reason yellow does not photograph very well, but I will post them anyhow. I coated them in yellow sanding sugar, you know because sugar cookies and royal icing do not have enough sugar in them!
Happy Baking...Happier Eating!
