Valentine's Day Cookie Pop
Thursday, 09 February 2012 12:19
Hello everyone, Kathia here from Pink Little Cake Blog showing you another tutorial just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you are getting ready to bake some treats to your kid’s teachers, coworkers and friends, I got you covered! Today, I have selected 4 heart cookie cutters to make cookie pops using fondant instead of royal icing. Have you noticed how popular cookie pops have become? I know some people are intimidated by inserting a stick in a cookie, but today I will show you an easy way to make your cookie pops.
Start by getting the following cutters:
You will also need the following supplies:
- Pink Fondant
- Light Corn Syrup
- Small Brush
- Small Rolling Pin
- Confectioners Sugar
- Gold Disco Dust
- Royal Icing (stiff consistency)
- Craft Sticks
- Small Flower Cutter
1-Dust some confectioners’ sugar on your rolling mat and roll the fondant out.
2-Using the same cookie cutters that you used to cut your cookies, cut the fondant shapes.
3-Brush your cookies with some corn syrup and attach the fondant cutouts to the cookies.
5-Put the craft sticks on a baking sheet and pipe some icing on the top part of the stick.
6-Place your cookies on top of the icing and let them set for at least 3 hours.
If you are in a hurry you can leave the cookie plain with only the fondant like the picture below. I personally love this heart fluted cookie cutter with an scallop border.
If you want to dress your cookies up and make them cute and shiny, a good amount of gold disco dust will make them look fantastic.
To Make These Cookies:
1-Put the cookies on a piece of parchment paper or paper towel.
2-Brush the cookies with a little bit of the corn syrup.
3-Take the disco dust and gently shake it onto the cookies.
4-Let it set for a couple of minutes and shake off the excess disco dust from the cookie.
5-Use a small paintbrush to dust the border areas off the cookie.
If you want to get a little fancier with your cookies, you can add fondant decorations.
I love ruffles and puffy cookies. So here is another decorating option that you can make.
Using a small rolling pin, roll your fondant out as thin as you can.
Using a small flower cutter, cut lots of flowers.
To make the “flower ruffle”, just take the flower, fold it in half, then fold it in half again. Then let it dry for a bit on a piece of parchment paper.
Apply a small amount of corn syrup on the cookie and attach the ruffles in the order that you prefer.
Lately, I have been in love with spray pearl dust. So to finish this cookie I sprayed it with just a touch of pearl dust. This is just something a little extra that I wanted to add, but the cookie will look great without it.
Happy cookie decorating...and Happy Valentine’s Day!
