The Partiologist: Pencil Cookies!

Pencil Cookies!

While everyone has been busy getting the kiddos ready to go back to school, I've been busy making "Back to School" treats.  Just in case you're already "Back to School" please consider these as "After School Treats"!!  And I'd like you to "Pencil Me In" and make these cookies!

Pencil Cookies
 
 Packaged in Pretzel Bags!

Make your own pencil cookie cutter, or you may easily cut them by hand.
 
Here's the size I made to fit in the pretzel bags ~ PENCIL TEMPLATE
 
After the cookies are baked and while cooling, get your fondant ready.
 
You know... if you've got it then "fondant" it!  :)
 
Here's how~
 
Started with brown, pink and white fondant.

Added a little dark pink and brown fondant to the light pink fondant for the eraser color.

Rolled and cut out the pink fondant with the top of the pencil cookie cutter.

Added a little white fondant to the brown for the pencil point color.

Rolled and cut the brown with the tip of the pencil cookie cutter.

Using a scalloped cutter, cut the top of the brown fondant.

Using a lined impression mat, rolled the white fondant.

Brushed the white fondant with the silver shimmer dust .

Measured and cut the white fondant in rectangles for the silver band of the pencil.

Rolled and cut the black fondant with the pencil tip cookie cutter, then trimmed at the top.

Place the black tip on the pencil tip.

Now all your fondant pieces are ready to place on the frosted cookie.

But of course you have to frost it first.

Pipe one strip down the middle.

Then another strip on each side.

Clean the edges with a spatula and add the fondant pieces!

It even writes!!
 
Just Kidding...But after all that work it should!

And I added a Tag - Printable HERE
 
Each day this week I'll be featuring some fun "Back To" or "After" School Treats!

So...Pencil Me In!
