How To Make Colorful Bow Cookies

My sister recently asked me to make cookies for her and she wanted so many things on them… bows, patterns, dots and lots of color.

Putting all those features together on a single cookie was challenging but fun too!

She loved these whimsical and colorful cookies and I did a tutorial so that you can make them too.

To make these cookies, you will need the following supplies:

Pink fondant
White fondant
Blue fondant
Round scalloped cutter
Rolling pin
Round scalloped chocolate sugar cookies
Yellow royal icing
Knife
Paintbrush
Wilton tip# 3

And here are the instructions:

Step 1:
Mix your pink, white and blue fondant roughly until you end up with a big marbled ball.
Then, roll it out and you will end up with colorful marbled fondant.

Step 2:
Use a round scalloped cutter to cut out a piece.

Step 3:
Brush some royal icing or corn syrup on your chocolate cookie.
Stick the fondant piece on top of the cookie and press gently so that it sticks properly.

Step 4:
Fill a piping bag with yellow royal icing and attach Tip#3.
Hold your bag at a 45 degree angle and make horizontal lines on your cookie.
Make sure the lines are evenly spaced.

Tip:
If you find it difficult to make these lines freehandedly, draw the lines with an edible marker first and then trace over them with royal icing.

Step 5:
Now, pipe vertical lines and you will end up with little squares.

Step 6:
Make little dots in each square.
Keep these cookies aside until the the royal icing dries.

Step 7:
Use the leftover marbled fondant to cut out a long rectangular piece.
Cut it in half, as shown by the dotted lines.

Step 8:
Also, cut out two triangular pieces and a small square piece.

Step 9:
Use royal icing or corn syrup to stick the triangle pieces along the side of the cookie.
Stick the little square piece in the center.
Then, if you like… you can cut out two very thin strips of marbled fondant and stick those below the bow.
