You know when you have something in your mind and it works? Well, I'm happy to report these cookies worked (wish I could say that for the other cookies I made). Anyway, I wanted to make those cookies that you put together like a puzzle to create a person.
Well, sort of a person, a cookie person.Totally covered in fondant.
When I started, I had somewhat of an idea, but wasn't sure if I should add the boots.
As you can see, I added the boots, but still not sure if I liked them.
So I took another photo leaving them out and adding fireworks~
The set of cookie cutters were very popular around Christmas, and had to have them.
Only, I didn't have a chance to use them until now!
Pretty simple to make, that is if you have a day to make four cookies.
Remember seeing that set of Christmas Cutter's by Wilton?
I added the heart and then I had my stacked set for the Uncle Sam cookies.
I started with the heart.
Cut out strips of red and white fondant with the No. 3 strip cutter.
Placed each strip of fondant on the cookie and trim the edge with sharp knife.
Roll and emboss a white piece of fondant with stripes.
Using the same heart cutter, cut out a piece for the shirt.
Cut out stars for the buttons and emboss a piece of blue fondant with dots for the lapels.
After finally cutting the right shape for the lapel, I placed one piece of fondant on top of another, so they would be the exact shape.
Mold a red bow using a mold.
Roll out blue fondant and cut the top with the boot cutter.
Trim off the bottom and roll a little larger to fit the cookie.
Do the same with red fondant, cut with the boot cutter and roll it a little bit larger.
Place on the cookie and using a toothpick, press a line down the center of the boots.
Cut white fondant with a No. 2 strip cutter for the stripes.
Add strips of white fondant horizontally across the cookie and press with a toothpick.
Three sizes of stars - I ended up using the smallest star for both the boot and the hat.
HAT? What? Looks like I forgot to take photos of the hat. Or his face. My bad.
Seriously, does anyone even want to know?
