About

Handmade iced biscuits with a touch of artistry.

My name is Szilvia Siklosi, I am the owner of Cookie-Art London.
Since I was a kid I loved to be in the kitchen..we spent a lot of time baking with my mother and my sisters together..and my father taught me how to make scrambled eggs when I was around 12 years old… Later on there were two things I was keen on..one is gastronomy and the other one is arts&crafts. I tried and did lots of things but in the end I trained as a pastry chef in London. I worked in high end pastry kitchens and after an unfair dismissal I decided to set up my own business and do what I like the most…baking and especially decorating and express myself through my designs. My inspiration comes from a lots of things, a bit of eclectic...from vintage china till my countries folk motifs.

With my cookies I would like to keep my country`s - Hungary- tradition as I am using a more than 200 years old recipe but decorating them with these delicate patterns I make them to fit into the 21st century`s taste.

The recipe is a gingerbread recipe but what it makes a little bit different is that it contains honey. Honey makes it a bit softer and long lasting as it preserves the cookies as well. There are no artificial flavours and additives in these cookies yet they keep up to a year. Well, normally we associate gingerbread with Christmas … I grew up making these cookies with my mother and sisters every Christmas…we put them on the Christmas tree as decoration and of course we ate them as well..they are so delicious:) Where I am came from gingerbread is not just for Christmas. In Hungary starting from the late 18th early 19th century the red heart gingerbread was a love gift. It had a special decoration which was a small mirror in the middle and had some lovely icing around, usually floral patterns. The young men bought them for the girl they fancied or intended to marry on a special day – the day of the Church Saint. On this special day every town and village had a fair with amusements, food, candies and sweets and of course gingerbread. You can still find this tradition but nowadays everybody buys them for their friends, parents and loved ones.

All the cookies are made by hand even the dough. The icing I am using is traditional royal icing and the patterns on the cookies are piped by freehand till the smallest detail. I am using food colouring to achieve the right colour, edible tint and lustre powder to make the details even more pretty and special.

So please welcome my decorated gingerbread cookies I hope they give you as much joy and happiness as they do for me. Szilvia x
