Diamond in the Rough

The country club/golf fund raiser theme was “diamond in the rough.”  The client’s only instructions were ‘we want a diamond…’  I asked ‘diamond?’ …not “rough” like a fairway rough or a diamond sitting in a fairway rough?  ‘Nope, a diamond.  And put it in a bag with a ribbon…100 bags.’  Okay.  What could I do with quick efficiency and (because I am who I am) in a design that  I had not seen before?  Here are the resulting cookies:

(PS: These cookies would also be great for an engagement party or bridal shower!)

I started with a simple superman “s” shaped cookie cutter and flooded them with white royal icing.  That dried overnight before I added the blue.ish accents (which only had to dry a short time…like an hour or so) before I free-hand/penned in the diamond outline.  I used an Americolor black pen.  Here’s a quick pic of the general steps I took to get it done.
