cookie tattoos

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 these 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. (For tips on how to do this, CLICK HERE and follow step one.) For tips on where to find supplies, CLICK HERE.

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.

    Satin Ice is a super yummy fondant. I got a lot of rave reviews on my last cake.

    Those are so great!

    Can I just say I am hanging my head in embarrassment at the moment! I never put together that you are Edible Crafts as well!

    I love The Decorated Cooke and Love Edible Crafts and now I am in awe that I know you are the same person!

    It's amazing what a small world the internet can be considering it's overwhelming size! I've had people before contact me on both ends for specific things not realizing I was the same person! How funny :)

    You're welcome! I'm not sure where you are located, but if it is anywhere near Bensalem, PA – there is a cake supply distributor with a small store that you can get it from. The name of the place is Oasis. The chocolate is super yummy and taste like tootsie rolls.

    It is so funny that you posted on the Cookie Tattoos because I was in Michael's just the other day and saw all of Duff's new products. I actually picked up his gel pastes just to compare and see. I am definitely going to try the tattoos now too. Thanks so much.

    They're so pretty! I didn't see Duff's "stuff" when I went, I saw Mary Engelbreit…and I love her, too. Now that I have an icing printer, I couldn't bring myself to BUY the tattoos! 😉

    if you are looking for a tasty fondant, try looking up a recipe for 'Marshmallow Fondant' made of marshmallows – delicious!

    I have tried Duff's fondant in brown and white. The brown taste like a tootsie roll and everyone who tasted agreed it was very tasty. The white was also good. It beats the other alternative that you can buy at Michaels which is Wilton. I use Wilton only for things that will not be eaten.
