Fondant Iced Biscuits
I brought a packet of Pettinice White Icing from the supermarket the other day purely because it was on special. I have never used fonant icing before, so being totally new to me, I decided to get a feel for it and start with something basic - icing biscuits.
I found mixing the colour in annoying, and think in the future I will just buy pre-coloured fondant from the cake shop. Lazy huh haha.
The biscuits are basic butter biscuits (recipe can be found here http://sliceinthelifeofjulie.blogspot.com/2011/07/alphabet-cookies.html) . Once they were cooled I rolled out the fondant on a lighty dusted (icing sugar) surface, cut out the shapes and popped onto the biscuit using corn syrup to stick.
I think they are stunning, for reasonably little effort, and will definately be making these to adorn tables at the childrens birthday parties.
