These are quick and easy and simple and small: little square firecracker cookies. I drew these on square cookies topped with squares of fondant (bake cookies using a 2 1/4 inch square cutter, roll out store-bought fondant, cut out squares with the same cutter, adhere to cookie with light corn syrup or a thin layer of frosting, and let stiffen a few hours). You can also draw these on marshmallows or on royal icing that has been flooded and left to dry overnight.

To draw, I used Americolor Gourmet Writers, black, yellow, red and blue.
