Just realized, these cookie are most likely printed with a "Cake Printer". It uses frosting instead of ink to print with. Still super cool!

If these were printed, the images they used to print them look to be redone.  They are definitely not images of the actual Wackys.

Nope, you're definitely right. It would be cool to see how she does these. No matter how they're done, they're some serious eye candy!

I’m no expert, but will admit to having a crafty wife and daughter. As a result , over the years I have watched more than my share of cake decorating shows and misc craft shows. I am pretty sure these cookies are hand piped (butter cream icing in bags using various tips). If someone wanted to make non-edible, similar pieces, I think fabric “Puffy paint”  or similar product could be used. Of course, a bit of talent and or experience would be helpful.

I know nothing about cake and cookie decorating, but these cookies are incredible.  I can imagine they were time-consuming to make and would be expensive to buy.  However, does anyone know if one could make inexpensive cookies that still looked pretty good?  I mean, I would feel guilty eating the works of art shown here, but would relish the chance to eat cookies that looked good but didn't cost an exorbitant amount to make.

You shouldn't put relish on cookies, you might end up in a pickle  :o

I think the previously mentioned "cake printer" would be the way to go.

The cake printers are cool technology  but they basically are just printing a photo image using edible ink (food coloring) on a sheet that transfers to an iced cake, These cookies have a really nice "3D" look to them.

The 3D look is what made me think they were hand decorated with fondant and icing bags.

I totally hear you about the difference between a cake printer and what these cookies are.  I'm curious, however, about the price difference to create such things.  I'm guessing it would be very substantial.  I wouldn't want to eat one of these masterpieces.  But, at what I'm assuming is a markedly reduced price, I'm happy to have some of the cake-printed cookies to gooble up on special occasions.
