Personalized stamp on a fondant covered sugar cookie
How do you get a personalized stamp on a fondant covered sugar cookie?
A personalized stamp on a fondant covered sugar cookie is so special. Unbelievably, they are quick and easy to decorate. I recently offered to bake and decorate several batches of my best sugar cookie recipe as favors for my nephew’s wedding. I use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the cookies, as well as the fondant. In fact, it is one in the same. Since my sugar cookie recipe spreads slightly upon baking, it makes it the perfect size for the fondant applique. Yes, these are appliqued cookies. I have not used royal icing to frost these cookies. You may even find this method of decorating easier to accomplish if your hands are shaky or you don’t have the confidence to draw patterns.
They look like old fashioned Smarties, don’t they?
If you don’t know what fondant is, here is Wikipedia’s definition: Fondant icing, also commonly referred to simply as fondant (/ˈfɒndənt/, from the French: [fɔ̃dɑ̃] listen (help·info)), is an edible icing used to decorate or sculpt cakes and pastries. It is made from sugar, water, gelatin, and glycerol. It does not have the texture of most icings; rolled fondant is akin to stiff clay, while poured fondant is a thick liquid. The word, in French, means “melting”, coming from the same root as fondue and foundry.
There’s nothing tastier than a fondant covered sugar cookie!
So,a little bit of fondant (that you can purchase at the store or make yourself), some sugar adhesive and a stamp kit are all you need. Fondant is a tasty vanilla flavored icing too. Join me as I roll, adhere and stamp almost 200 cookies for my Nephew’s wedding. These treats make wonderful wedding favors, engagement party cookies, and the list goes on… Let your imagination guide you!
