So I was in Michaels Craft Store the other day, and I saw THESE. Duff Cake Tattoos. (As in, Duff of Ace of Cakes, as in, designs printed on edible sheets used to cover cakes, cupcakes and cookies, like those ticings I like so much.) So I had to try them. According to the Charm City Cakes blog, they also have other products. I didn’t see them in the store, but perhaps because this is brand spanking new. I might have to try the fondant in my quest for good-tasting fondant.
I made cookies, of course. Because the tattoos are in strips about 2 1/4 inch wide, I used my handy 2 1/4 inch square fondant cutter to cut out squares of my chocolate sugar cookies. Then I just used store-bought fondant, rolled it out and cut out squares of the same size. You can adhere the fondant squares to the cookie with a thin layer of frosting or royal icing or with a coat of light corn syrup. Instead of fondant, you can also flood the square cookie with white icing.
To use the tattoos, I just cut out a square the same size as my fondant topped cookie, brushed the cookie with light corn syrup (you can also use water), and pressed and smoothed the tattoo on top.
