- If you are good with piping, you can make flower cookies with royal icing or glace icing and pipe this same design.
These are the INSTRUCTIONS:
Roll out light blue fondant. Place the impression sheet on top of it and press it hard until the pattern transfers onto the blue fondant.
Use a round scalloped cutter to cut out a piece.
Brush corn syrup on top of your cookie and stick the blue piece here.
Roll out red fondant and use a flower cutter to cut out a piece.
Place it on a foam pad and use the balling tool to thin out the edges of the petals.
Use a black edible marker to draw lines in the center.
Brush some water in the center and stick a white pearl here.
Roll out green fondant and use a leaf cutter to cut out a piece.
Use a knife to add details on this leaf.
Brush corn syrup on top of your fondant-covered cookie and stick the leaf and flower.
Stick some white pearls randomly. Enjoy!
