When making my Uncle Sam Cookies last week, I had planned to make another cookie, a mosaic flag. I could see it in my mind, beautiful little squares of fondant placed so perfectly on my royal icing covered cookie...royal icing? That's where it all went wrong,
I didn't make my royal icing thick enough and it not only covered the top of my cookie, it ran all down the sides of the cookie. It was really quite pretty and in an instant, I saw a chance to make the dripping mess into a sparkly "Frozen" cookie.
As my mom would say "It's a happy mistake"!
Although it seems a little odd, I made snowflake cookies in June with the temps in the 90's.
I snapped a few photos along the way to show you how.
Rolled and cut blue fondant spelling out "Frozen".
Before the cookie was completely dry, I added the letters and sprinkled with sanding sugar and sugar flakes.
This might be something new for you to try - Isomalt?
When melted, it stays crystal clear and I love using it.
So I broke off a few pieces of the isomalt sticks and placed them inside a silicone cupcake liner. (Actually I broke them in much smaller pieces but forgot to take a photo).
Microwave in 15 second increments until completely melted.
Pour into hard candy gemstone molds and let set.
Using a White Wilton sugar sheet, I punched out a jumbo snowflake.
Then I added the gem stone in the middle with a little brush of water.
This is when I was questioned as to why I was making snowflakes in June.
Because now I have a set of "Frozen" cookies.
And you can too, get started now before they melt.
I just love "Happy Mistakes"
