Christmas basket cookies

I finished these beautiful Christmas basket cookies today. Now they only need to be packed into celophane bags. Then they are ready for this year small Christmas gifts to my friends. It is my favourite vanilla sugar cookies decorated with rolled fondant. At first I was planing to make them all white but then I thought a brown basket was nicer.

I have used a basket embosser from Patchwork Cutters to make the basket look and painted them with brown petal dust dissolved in clear alcohol. The flowers are made with the Petunia cutter from Tinkertech Two with the flower veiner. Some Holly leaves and loads of gold sparkle dust. I am really satisfied with the result. Now I just hope my friends thinks the same.

Happy Caking

    Rolled fondant is the same like Regalice/Renshaws. Aparently in the US they call it rolled fondant. I personally call it sugarpaste.
