Valentine letter cookies

img_7020_resize

With Valentine’s Day soon approching, the web is loaded with all sorts of sweet ideas for making that something special for your loved ones. I came up with this idea: Valentine letter cookies. That way the receiver can spell your messages by themself, a bit like scrabble :-) The cookies are 1 7/8″ and I have used the smallest heart from the Nesting Heart Cookie Cutters from wilton.

The cookies are decorated with pink fondant cut-out hearts. For the letter embossing, I used the Jem’s alphabet cutter set. I really like the style of the letters and they are so useable because every letter is like a little stamp so you can emboss almost everything with this set. For the last touch I brushed lustre dust on the hearts to give them a little shimmer, it just dont shows well on the photos.

Before packing the cookies remember to let the fondant “dry” to avoid any marks on the hearts.

Happy Caking
