I used a stencil to spray a gold honeycomb pattern onto these bee monogram cookies. The flowers were piped using white icing, but with a painted yellow center and some white nonpareils to finish it off. You can also try filling your piping back with two tones of icing and getting some variation that way.
The monograms were done freehand, which I rarely recommend, unless the letter is an “easy” one, like M. At the very least, I will stipple a few guide points to ensure that my letters are all of uniform size and proportion.
