The Decorating Technique That Makes 'Embroidery' Look Delicious

Stacy Conradt

This artist doesn't use a needle and thread to do embroidery, but the result is realistic, delicate, intricate—and edible. Hungarian baker Judit CzinknÉ PoÓr makes these gingerbread works of art for her business, Mezesmanna. Originally a porcelain painter, Judit discovered a talent for cookie decorating a few years ago when a friend asked her to make a batch of iced gingerbread as a Christmas gift. Watching her decorate is mesmerizing—and it'll make you rethink that tub of canned frosting you've got in the pantry. Take a look below.
