No Valentine’s Day without something sweet. Therefore I have made some Valentine’s heart cookies and iced them with rolled fondant.
To get the really deep red that I have used on some of the cookies. I have used a mix of Crystal color’s Poinsetta and Americolor’s Super Red. The mix of powder and gel together works really great and is really worth a try if you have not tried it before.
The pink color is my favourite choice from Sugar Flair.
I have used my alphabet cutter/embosser set from JEM, along with the pretty quilting embosser and a small rose (Wild rose set) from Patchwork Cutters and some royal icing.
I wish you all a sweet Valentine’s Day!

Fantastic looking cookies! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Beautiful cookies, Louise!
First let me say….love you site here!! I’m so inspired when I come here. 🙂
I would like to know if you have the recipe for these sugar cookies? I didn’t know if you share the recipes or not? Would love to have a sturdy sugar cookie recipe so I can practice. 🙂
Thank you so much.
I use this recipe: https://cakejournal.com/archives/vanilla-sugar-cookies
Those are beautiful! I never thought of using my tappits as emobossers. Great idea!
I just use a little brush of light corn syrup to make the fondant stick to the cookie.

You can get it in a mini version too 🙂 I think that when they say dust color it’s the same as luster dust ect.
oh I would like to get a quilting embosser for fondant!!! Where did you get yours?
I tried to google jem but I only got some music bands…
I got it from Design a cake, https://www.design-a-cake.co.uk/
Thank you 🙂
These are gorgeous Louise!
Louise, they are lovely, as always. 🙂
(I liked your idea of using the small rose embosser, too!)
These are beautiful! I was wondering, how hard does the fondant get on the cookie as well as how the taste of the fondant is? With icing being wet, the cookie can remain a bit soft and hold in some moisture with the icing. Does fondant get to a crumble-breaking point on a cookie? Also, do you flavor your fondant? I just love the fact that I can easily flavor my icing to fit whatever cookie recipe I use…
I think that if you use fondant on cookies I like to eat them within a week, after that will the fondant get more hard to bite into. The cookie are still ok to eat. After 3 weeks I don’t like to eat them anymore. It is different with RI cookies here I don’t have a problem eating them after 3 weeks (max 4), as long as they are stored correctly.
I never use flavor for my fondant.
Absolutely gorgeous Louise!! Love them, but I don’t see the link where it says “you can find the cookie recipe here”? Am I looking in the wrong place?
Hmm my pc have messed things up…. You should be able to see it now. Sorry for any confusions.
I have linked to it in one of the other comments 🙂
I used the alphabet cutters from jem and used then as embossers.
You can find the cookie recipe here: they wanted me to write a book within 6 weeks and since I have no experience and because I of course would like it to be all perfect
I don’t have a recipe for fondant. I just use the store bought. As it never fails.
Thank you for your reply!! What is the link? (Sorry I am feeling non-tech-savvy today!
Every time I look at your post I am blown away by the beauty of these cookies!!! Can’t wait to look again for next reply! 🙂
