While everyone has been busy getting the kiddos ready to go back to school, I've been busy making "Back to School" treats. Just in case you're already "Back to School" please consider these as "After School Treats"!! And I'd like you to "Pencil Me In" and make these cookies!
Packaged in Pretzel Bags!
Make your own pencil cookie cutter, or you may easily cut them by hand.
Here's the size I made to fit in the pretzel bags ~ PENCIL TEMPLATE
After the cookies are baked and while cooling, get your fondant ready.
You know... if you've got it then "fondant" it! :)
Started with brown, pink and white fondant
Added a little dark pink and brown fondant to the light pink fondant for the eraser color
Rolled and cut out the pink fondant with the top of the pencil cookie cutter
Added a little white fondant to the brown for the pencil point color
Rolled and cut the brown with the tip of the pencil cookie cutter
Using a scalloped cutter, cut the top of the brown fondant
Using a lined impression mat, rolled the white fondant
Brushed the white fondant with the silver shimmer dust
Measured and cut the white fondant in rectangles for the silver band of the pencil
Rolled and cut the black fondant with the pencil tip cookie cutter, then trimmed at the top
Place the black tip on the pencil tip
Now all your fondant pieces are ready to place on the frosted cookie
But of course you have to frost it first
Pipe one strip down the middle
Then another strip on each side
Clean the edges with a spatula and add the fondant pieces!
It even writes!!
Just Kidding...But after all that work it should!
Each day this week I'll be featuring some fun "Back To" or "After" School Treats!
So...Pencil Me In!
