In graphic design and photography I deal with pixels all the time. A pixel is the smallest controllable element of a picture. A pixel reminds me of making cookies, starting out as just dough and each small step leading to beautiful cookie in the end. Together they make a beautiful image. Pixels are popular with the new movie coming out. I knew that it would be fun to try to create a unicorn cookie in pixel form.
When I started searching the internet I found this image and knew it was the one. I purchased the image from Shuttertock. I brought the unicorn images into Photoshop and enlarged it and printed it out. I used this print out to cut on the cookies.
To decorate the cookies I started off by drawing on with the mane and tail would be with a food coloring marker. Then I piped and flooded the body with the lighter purple icing. Once the body was dry I added all the dark purple areas. The final part was adding the yellow horn.
