I am so excited to share this set with you!
As always here's the sketch that started it all.
This is my very first fondant set!!!
I really didn't understand the big deal about fondant. I've had it on cake a few times and I've even made it 2 or3 times before but I haven't been a huge fan in the past.
Little did I know that fondant and cookies are a special match...
I had no idea how delicious they were together.
Definitely expect to see more fondant in the future.
I can't believe we've been putting it on cakes instead of sugar cookies this whole time.
Which Way!? Cookie Pop
The glitter wouldn't show up in the pictures so I had to help a little....
Find the Key
Edible Glitter is Fun, That's the Key!
43 Rings on the Tree
Keeping secrets from your bestie is hard.
These are the updates I sent her as her cookies were being created and mailed LOL.
Homemade Marshmallow Fondant
Microwave marshmallows and 2 tsp of water until the marshmallows are melted. Fold in powdered sugar until a dough forms. Use Crisco to keep the marshmallows from sticking to your hands.
I've found it's easier to work with after it's rested for a day or so.
DO NOT PUT IT IN THE FRIDGE. Wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in a ziploc. It can stay on the counter for 3-4 weeks.
(Much more messy and time consuming than it looks or sounds but it gets easier each time and it's DELICIOUS on cookies.)
I bought some molds to use for this set.
I can't wait to start collecting more silicone molds.
This was a "practice" fondant set for me so I played with the molds and made a lot of fondant pieces that never made it to the cookies.
Some molds were easier to use than others. Cornstarch is your friend.
This set was crazy. I don't think I've ever had to rebake so many cookies in my tiny cookie creating life. BUT. Man I was so happy I had those extras because I have fallen in love with fondant cookies and they got me through my own holiday baking. They were delicious. I'll absolutely be making more with marshmallow fondant.
I love happy accidents.
That is a reminder to give yourself a break.
Cookies burn. Icing runs. Hakuna Matata.
I rebaked the keys twice LOL.
Thank you so much for visiting and checking out the new things I'm doing!
I hope you had fun or found some inspiration!
Have a magical day!
And until next time...
Peace & Love,
