The Partiologist: Frozen Cookies!

Frozen Cookies!

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.

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.

Here's why...

Because now I have a set of "Frozen" cookies.

And you can too, get started now before they melt.
  
I just love "Happy Mistakes"

Don't You?

  4. I love happy accidents! :) I did the same with some Halloween cookies on the ghost. In fact, I loved the way it spilled over the sides. Made it look neat around the edges. But then I'm no cookie mistress as you are.

    I love the snowflake and the gorgeous ice (edible diamond). So cute. I haven't seen Frozen yet which is bad as my kidlets have it on DVD, but the kiddos love it and would totally adore these!

    Another great reason to be busting out the snowflake cutters in the middle of summer. Gotta love that.

  5. I just love how everything turned out. I just did snowflakes last week for a little friend's Frozen party. I love the letter cutters you used. I did not see them in your supply list. What is that letter cutter exactly? Thanks for always teaching me something new! Carla
