Embossed cookies

This is some of the embossed cookies that I have made recently. The cookies are basic sugar cookies and they are iced with MMF.

I have used Patchwork Cutters: Quilting embosser for the heart cookie in the teacup and the Butterflies-Ladybirds & Bees cutter/embosser for the small round cookie.

For the pink and green heart cookies I have just used my favourite Dresden/Veining tool from JEM. Decorated them with edible pearls and quick mini roses. They all have borders piped with royal icing.

 I have a few more photos added in the cookie gallery.

Happy Caking

    I’m going to try to duplicate these for my Mom’s birthday. What size cookie cutter did you use? What size sugar pearls did you use (e.g., 6mm)? My cookie cutters don’t have that big, nice scalloped edge yours do. What brand was yours and/or where did you get it? I’ll look forward to hearing from you with anticipation!

    Beautiful cookies!
    Do you make the embossing pattern before puting the fondant on the cookie? or do you make it after attaching the fondant on the cookie?
    Thank you 🙂

    Anita: You brush the cookies with a little sugar syrup to attach mmf. For a fool proof sugar cookies recipe I use http://www.cakejournal.com/archives/vanilla-sugar-cookies Note that the recipe is in grams so you will need to convert (find a link in the comments) Also in that post I am reffering to another cookie recipe that I know many americans is using called “No fail sugar cookies” there are a link to that recipe aswell.

    Enjoy your decorating classes.

    Hi Louise!
    I just first want to say, your blog is my new bible! I love it and how you give tutorials with pictures! I mean you’re a blessing!
    I start my cake decorating class & Gum paste and Fondant flower class this week… my question is this (and please forgive me in advance for asking such a silly question) How do you get the MMF to stick to the cookie? Do you use the glue that you mention in other posts or icing?
    Also do you have or know of a fool proof sugar cookie recipe? I want to keep things simple as possible but with a great taste 🙂
    Thanks in advance (cause I’m sure you will see me around a lot!)
