Step 3: Filling in the Grid

Now that you have the grid all finished up, it is time to fill it in!  This step I found to be the funnest, and a lot simpler than I initially thought.  

To start I would look online for some sweater pattern ideas.  You can also just free hand the whole pattern and see what you come up with... I found this to be bit too difficult for me.

Next, I would choose two colors that you want to work with and fill two bags with these colors of icing.  You can use more than two colors of icing, but two colors is certainly easier to work with.  

Now the fun part, filling in the grid.  I started at the middle of the cookie and worked my way out.  I found it easiest if the frosting was a bit warmer (you can warm the frosting by putting it under hot water).  This step takes a long time, but the cookie almost immediately looks amazing.  

Once you have finished filling in the grid, stand back and admire how much of an artist you are!  And if all this decorating makes you really hungry, dig in!  Although, I still find my cookies sitting in the middle of kitchen table, too beautiful for me to want to eat them.
<p>Wow! Those are incredible! They really do look knitted.</p>
Wow! Unbelievable pretty!
there must be a better tip to do that with so you can do 5 lines at a time or something...if not...then I have a new product to make.
These are beautiful!
Incredible. Those straight lines must require a steady hand. You could have a second career as a brain surgeon.
Hi Adobi, I love this cookie design!
Congratulations for your Grand Prize in the Cookie Contest! Great work
Wow, those are really neat. Congrats on winning! Your cookies were one of my favorites in the contest.
I just got something similar from: http://www.yves-rocher.com.pl as a gift ;) But yours looks way more cool! :D
Oh my! What a very unique idea. Much painstaking work, but SO neat!
This would work so well with counted cross-stitch patterns too! Congratulations and well done!
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing! <br>sunshiine
Wow... gorgeous... you must have a very steady hand!!!
They look great, but downside is that I wouldn't dare eat something that has been so much work to make...
These are gorgeous! If this wasn't in the food section I would have assumed this was a knitting project! Well done!
This is Art!
On my goodness! They look like they would take forever but they are just so darling!
