Day Of The Dead Gingerbread Woman

It has been almost two years since I made the big Day of the Dead gingerbread man. Here is the link to him... Day Of The Dead Gingerbread Man. Today I made his sister lol. I made this cookie purely for fun and because I was feeling inspired not to mention Day of the Dead  (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is Novemeber 1st and 2nd. Here she is...
The cookie is a pre made gingerbread man from Cost Plus World Market
The icing is all royal icing. Even the roses ;) 

 ♥ Thanks for stopping by ~Andrea ♥
