Finally Got to Bake Again

You all know my first cooking passion are my decorated sugar cookies. Well, for the past 5 months I have not taken the time to indulge myself until this past weekend. I had a few incentives including a few family and friend birthdays to get me going. I also had this idea in my head that I would create a sort of diva cookie with an ethnic influence. I tried using fondant as the primary decorating tool with a little royal icing for the finishing touches. I did discover that making a "kente cloth" type pattern with fondant will take a little more practice.

The result of my creative endeavor is an assortment of bikini or apron clad bears and my cookie divas.

They're wonderful! I really like the fondant patterns. I'm confused, though. How did you get the fondant to stick to the cooled cookie? And did you cut it out using the same cookie cutter? Great idea!

Thank you all very much. I use the same cookie cutter as the cookies. Because the cookies spread when baked, the same cutter used on the fondant is smaller. I make a simple syrup mixture which I paint on the cookies and this allows the fondant to srick.

I like the vibrant colors. I'll add a post with a link to the recipes.

How do you do cookies with several different colors of fondant like that? I'm just know pondering making/or trying to make some fondant cookies for a baby shower, but I'm afraid it may be more than I can handle having never worked with it before. Did you just hand cut each different color? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
