Today’s cookie is some hot stuff indeed. Yep, I went there.
Say hello to my little devil! I’ve done some progress shots here too in case you’d like to see how I put him together.
Here is cookie, and template. For my hand-cut cookies, I print out the picture, cover it with plastic contact on both sides, which gives a firmer template to cut around plus stops the butter oil from getting onto the paper.
Again, my edible marker has been used to sketch the outlines.
I mixed up a bright red and a dark red to achieve the shading look, using wet on wet technique.
I finished the red first, then left it to dry for half a day, then adding the white. Red and black icing leech their colour into others really easily so letting them dry a long as possible is a good move.
*glares at dimple in left hand* Seems I was a little eager to get going and used my red icing soon after mixing and we have some air bubbles.
And now, details! Cheeky little bugger!
Catch me here tomorrow for a double cookie feature.
Until next time, have fun!
