Vsetin - Female students of the secondary vocational school in Vsetin have made two fine and richly decorated honey gingerbread cookies for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the occasion of the christening of Prince George born at the end of July, they told journalists today.
The locket-shaped gingerbread cookies are densely decorated with hundreds of fine lines about one millimetre apart, creating lace motifs.
The main motif is a cradle and the royal crown. One cookie features the name of the prince.
"Everything is hand-made,...it requires great dexterity," teacher Jaroslava Londova said, adding that it took a month to make the gingerbreads.
Marie Kolinkova, a school graduate who also helped decorate the gingerbreads and who has won a gold medal for her product at the world championship in Luxembourg, confirmed that it is very demanding to make such decorations.
The cookies are edible, but they are rather meant as a work of art.
Londova said she and her students also sent a decorated gingerbread to Kate and William on their wedding in 2011 as a reminder of the traditions that are still kept in the region.
She said they contacted the royal family via the British embassy and that they received a letter of thanks from them.
