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. Find dough and frosting recipes HERE. Find a fondant recipe HERE.

To draw, I used Americolor Gourmet Writers, black, yellow, red and blue.
1. draw an oval with black
2. draw 2 curved lines
3. draw a curved line to connect the 2 lines
4. draw a line for the wick
5. fill with red and blue stripes as desired (leave blank space for white stripes), being sure to color lines next to each other without layering (markers will show beneath other colors)
6. draw yellow and black lines coming from wick
