A new toy
However, I have not made fondant before and I live a ways from any craft store, so I did what I could easily do today. Sugar cookies of course.
I used the recipe on cricut.com site for cookie dough. I had heard you have to freeze the sheets of dough first and after you cut, so I did, in addition to using parchment paper to cut on. I found a pressure set at 2 was perfect.
The cookies turned out cute, but my frosting glaze could use a bunch of help. I am going to try a new recipe next time. I was hoping to use royal frosting, but I am not one who likes to use raw egg for anything.
Maybe I will take some pictures of the finished product tomorrow, before they are all eaten. Or maybe I will have to just make more.
Overall after a few youtube videos, it really was easy to use. So glad I got to give it a try. I hope to make many more fun edible treats soon.
