Create professional-looking cookies decorated with fondant with this cookie cutter and impression mat set. The set includes a wedding dress/formal gown cookie cutter and three plastic impression mats to create appropriate patterns in fondant or buttercream. Two of the mats are designed to be used with the cookie cutter and the third mat has an all-over design which can be used either with the cookie cutter, or for creating an impression in fondant or buttercream to cover any small surface (such as other cookie shapes or cupcakes). Either side of the mats can be used: one side will produce a raised impression, while the other will give a recessed impression (which can be filled with a contrasting colour).
Roll cookie dough and cut out shapes using the cookie cutter. Bake and allow to cool completely. To decorate with fondant, lightly spray the impression mat with cooking spray; wipe off excess with a paper towel. Roll fondant to approximately 1/8" thickness. Place the impression mat on the counter, and turn the fondant over on top of the mat. Roll over fondant once. Turn the fondant over and remove the mat. Cut out the impressed fondant piece with the cookie cutter and attach to cookie with piping gel or a thin layer of buttercream. To decorate the cookie with buttercream, ice the cookie with buttercream icing and allow the buttercream to crust. Place the impression mat over the crusted buttercream; roll over the mat once with a pastry roller or small rolling pin. Lift the mat.
