You may color coordinate these ideas for your sweet tables – the cookies make great party favors as well.
- Sugar cookie dough
- Rolled fondant
- Square fluted cookie cutter(I used 2 ½)
- Straight edge square cookie cutter(I used 2 ¼”)
- Acetate paper (available at copy center)
- Invitation, monogram, name, message (i.e. It’s a Girl!)
- 3/8”Coordinating ribbons(about 12” per cookie)-optional
- Plastic straw-optional
- Small cellophane bags -optional
- Reduce invitation, monogram, etc ( I reduced to 2 ¼”)
- Copy onto acetate paper (you should be able to fit approx 12 per page)
- Roll out cookie dough
- Using the fluted cookie cutter, cut out the dough
- Using a straw, cut out two holes- approximately ½” from top and 1” apart from each other
- Bake according to recipe directions
- Roll out fondant
- Using the square cookie cutter, cut out fondant( slightly smaller than the cookie)
- Place fondant on top of cookie (if the fondant does not stick to the cookie try dabbing a drop of water on the fondant)
- Turn fondant covered cookie upside down. Push a plastic straw through the cookie holes and into the fondant thereby creating holes in the fondant as well.
- Place your cut out invitation, monogram… onto the fondant.
- Use a pen to mark off holes.
- Use a hole puncher to cut out holes.
- Once again place your invitation,monogram… over your fondant.
- Push ribbon through holes( starting from the back of the cookie)You may use a toothpick to help push the ribbon through the holes.
- Form a bow.
If you are planning to use the cookies as party favors –skip all steps that involve making holes in cookies.Acetate paper will stick to cookies with a dab of water.For a finishing touch-wrap cookies in cellophane bags and ribbons. Please note: Acetate paper is not edible it is for decoration purposes only.
