I have recently bought some new cookie cutters and I was so happy that I finally found the teapot cookie cutters, I think their shape reminds me of the madhatter’s tea party. I found them on ebay.
The dragon fly is for my insect cutter collection and the car is so close to the car cookies. I did earlier this year, only this one is smaller.
So now there is no excuse anymore! I have to make some cookies soon….
I also wanna show you some adorable pink cupcakes that I made the other day. They are covered in sweet pink poured fondant with small roses on top. I myself had two with a nice cup of tea.
Thanks so far for the Halloween cake ideas you have sent me, please send more:)
Bianca: I have so many recipes but it was a vanilla and I made it by beating the eggs & sugar first then add melted butter, and then lightly fold in the dry ingrediens. But the poured fondant also helps make it more domed and smoothe. It it not everytime I get them so domed…
What recipe did you use to get the nice dome?
Thank you so much!!
When I use rolled fondant on cookies. i just roll it out very thinly use the same shaped cutter for the cookie and cut out.
I then brush a thin coat of corn syrup on the cookie and attache the fondant piece on top. I dont have any cream in between. I then use my smoother the get it nice.
I used to use royal icing on my cookies but this fondant is so much fun and quick to do. you can always make any detail in RI if you like.
So go and make a try yourself. i bet you will love it:-)
First of all I must tell you that all your creations are simply wonderfull!! I just discovered your blog, so I am still discovering new stuff.
secondly, I wanted to ask you about the cookies: Do you cut out the shapes in rolled fondand and put them on the cookie?? it turns out so delicate. Do you put some cream in between?? I only knew about glazing with royal icing for cookies up until now…
Thank you Swati.
You make some beautiful orchids.
Love your work…I keep checking out your blog often and am always left with a smile. Great job!!
Am also busy with cakes. Do visit my site too and lemme know if u like mine.
Thank you so much. I really like those simple cupcakes with poured fondant too. Poured fondant taste like fondant or royal icing. I actually dont know if you could use MMF instead? I buy my fondant from AlmondArt.com its called “white fondant” and is not like sugar paste its more sticky.
I think you would make just as beautiful cookies like you do cupcakes. I SO love your style.
Well I am fine & busy like always
Btw your blog is great.
Mange hilsner fra din danske ven Louise.
Oh, Louise, those cupcakes look so romantic and classy! I love them! I have to try that poured fondant! How does it taste though, the fondant? I´m not so keen on the sugarpaste I cover my cakes with, is it the same? Can I use mmf? well, gorgeous!
You are so inspiring´… I really want to try making cookies aswell! Have to get cutters and a good recope though 😉
I hope everything is well with you!
/din svenska vän, Linda, O´holy sweet
Thank you so much for your comments:-)
Yes these cupcakes dome naturally.
wow, i can’t believe these cupcakes naturally dome like that! It looks just too perfect! I thought you added on another cake (on top of the cupcake) from a domed baking tin. Just perfect! and love the colours you use!
These are beautifully feminine, I love it!
The cupcakes look lovely as always, but…by the way, do you EAT the cakes/ cupcakes ???
I would be rolling down the hill if I could bake these cute cakes…
Thank you Louise! You just gave a confidence booster shot! 🙂
yep! thats true Yan. Thats why its important to get the poured fondant very warm and runny.
So just keep trying:)
Lousie, is that true? Yours also comes out with cracks? Oh my, then you are really good with your poured fondant to be able to cover it! I’ve always thought to get these domes nicely covered needs an uncracked cupcake.
Keep up the good work! I’ve always loved viewing your creations. Cheers!
Minnie~knits: Yes It is a shame;) I love collecting cookie cutters & a flamingo sounds so cool. But it sound nice what you do with the family. Where do you get your cutters from?
For the domed shape it just the way the recipe turn out. I have seen many boxed mixes with a nice dome.
Yan: It is the poured fondant that creates the perfect dome and always after a second dip. All mine always comes out with cracks too but you just cant see it after they are coated. THX
Thank you nes:)
you are great! I like your works 🙂
These are so pretty! I can never get domed shaped cupcakes like yours. Mine are always cracked or they don’t dome so nicely.
I love cookie cutters! It is an absolute SHAME how rare I use them, though. I have a cool flamingo cutter, a set of snowflakes, and a set of butterflies, never used once! And those are just the ones I don’t use, I have way more! I get together with my niece and nephew a few times a year to make cookies. It involves at least 10 pounds of colored sprinkles…
Your cupcakes are absolutely beautiful, mine never turn out quite so perfectly (evenly) baked, in the nice dome shape. Is it because I use boxed cake mixes? I am jealous!
