Roses and Tea Cookie

>> Monday, July 20, 2009

This cookie is decorated with marshmallow fondant. I was new to this technique and found a wonderful 2 part tutorial on YouTube. The links are below. When rolling out the fondant use powder sugar on your board and pin. I also color small amounts of the fondant at a time. For this particular cookie I used two white discs cut with a round scalloped cookie cutter in two sizes and the hand formed the roses by cutting a strip of pink fondant about 1/2 inch by 4 inches and rolling it up into a rose. I use just old fashion butter cream frosting to attach the fondant to the cookie and to itself. To add a little depth I used a darker rose/pink dust and applied it with a very small brush down into the center of the flowers. I hope you have fun with this new technique. I would love to hear how it works for you! - Happy Baking - Cindy
