Graduation Cookies (Letter with Graduation Cap)

We take a break from my mom's wine party items to show these really cool cookies I made for one my friends niece. These turned out so great and I'm getting this royal icing thing down!

I just noticed the only pic I took of one cookie was one I hit with my nail.
The other's looked smoother.



What you need:
Letter Cookie Cutter (I picked mine up on Amazon)
Royal Icing (I use Julia M. Usher's Recipe
AmeriColor Soft Gel Coloring - Soft Pink
Piping Bags
Modeling Chocolate (White or use color for the cap you want)
Small Square Cookie Cutter

I rolled out the cookie dough and cut out the letters I needed. The girl I was making these for first name started with an E so I did about 32 E's. Baked them and let them cool. I tinted the royal icing was the soft pink gel. The E's weren't huge so when we did the outline we just ended up filling in with the same icing consistency instead of flooding like I did with the other Graduation Cookies. For the caps I took Candy Clay in white and cut out squares, my cutter was a little too small so I rolled it out to make it larger square. For the tassel we just took a strip of the candy clay and made it look like a tassel. And to make the cap have the button on the tassel we added a little circle of modeling chocolate. When the royal icing was almost dry I added the graduation cap to the cookie (I put a dab of icing on the back of the cap to make sure it stayed on).




For those who have not seen my previous post on how to make modeling chocolate (aka candy clay).

Modeling Chocolate
12oz Candy Melts
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup

Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup.  It will become thick and form a ball.  Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry.  Takes a few hours or over night is best. (Alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).



Thanks for Stopping by!
