Mr Spock as a cookie.

When asked to prepare some cookies for a birthday party and being told 'go nuts' I find myself quickly going a little over board... so for this batch of Birthday treats I made Original Series Star Trek cookies.
The recipe for the cookie base was a modified Apple cookie, adding two table spoons of cocoa powder and orange peel and juice. The cookies are also dipped in melted dark and milk chocolate. The chocolate dip makes it easier to do intricate icing work later on.
I drew Mr Spock free hand with an icing pipet, then filled in the enclosed areas with royal icing.
The uniforms and insignias were carved by hand in the cookie dough, then outlined in frosting and filled in with icing.

I hope you enjoyed these cookies!
