Gift wrapping

I love to craft things that I can use for beautiful gift wrapping for my homemade treats. This paper cone will hide the sweet cookie hearts decorated with rolled fondant. Maybe for a little Valentine’s Day gift?

Remember that if you use rolled fondant on your cookies Then let them dry for 1-2 days in a cardboard box. That will “harden” the rolled fondant, so it wont be sticky when packing. Also the cookies can make grease marks on the paper. So remember to pack them in a plastic/cellophane bag or grease proff paper, before packing them in paper gift boxes or like here a paper cone.

Happy Caking!

    lovely idea with the cookie hearts, I really like the idea of using sugarpaste as a coating. I agree that they need to be left to harden before putting into bags. These would make gorgeous wedding favours – great blog thank you

    Becky: Mmm marzipan sounds very interesting.

    MEA: Fondant on cookies is not that different from royal icing. Sweet but without the crunch. For some projects I do find fondant cookies better than RI and vice versa. You can still pipe RI on the fondant for details and so.

    Susan: Yes you can find it on the site + links to a few other sugar cookie recipes:http://www.cakejournal.com/archives/vanilla-sugar-cookies

    Danielle: There will be a tutorial on the cones, only I cant make it before Valentine. But What you do is take some craft paper/thin cardboard paper. cut out a cone in desired size. Before you “glue” it together cut a strip of crepe or tissue paper. Glue it on the top of the cone with a glue stick. The roll your cone and use double sided tape, not glue to hold the cone together. I used both tape and a stapler.

    Put your cookies into a disposable cone plastic bag and then into the paper cone. They are so easy to make. I made some as party favors for my daughters B-day party last year. Everyone loved them.

    Tessa U: The fondant is attached to the cookies, then sat to “dry”. This is only to prevent the fondant from sticking and getting soft/soggy when packed in a plastic bag for the paper cone. The cookie will still taste great. It would be a pitty to take out a sticky cookie.

    Gini: Sometimes it only take a half day. I just like to be on the safe side, when I plan to give a way edible cookie gifts.

    Marsha: woohoo, I will head over to your site now :-)

    I love this idea! I didnt know that it could take a couple of days for the fondant to dry. The cookies look so cute.

    Adorable cookies. I just have one question. When you say drying the fondant at least 2 days, is the fondant already attached to the cookies?
