I have this great chocolate dough and my design ability has just shut down totally. I want to make some cutouts for a fundraiser coming up and I want to use fondant on the top. I would like it to be a little on the elegant side, but I am open to suggestions. Something for Christmas. So I have chocolate dough and I can't think of a good shape or design for the top. Please get my creative juices going again!!!
Thanks for the help as I know you guys always come up with the best ideas.
How about snowflakes? Cover with whtie fondant, dust with silver or white luster dust and then do details with white royal icing. Or gingerbread people with white icing details. I don't think that chcocolate dough limits you to any specific designs. But these are my most popular two that I make when I do gingerbread dough and they really come out beautiful.
How about a house (like a gingerbread house look?), a sleigh, a stocking... If you are willing to color your RI then the sky is the limit, really. What about a snowman, that has fondant circles for the body pieces (individual circles overlapped).
Are you saying you only want to do circles or squares? The type of dough shouldn't limit you like ALVARGA said. I think some "elegant" Christmas cookies are snowflakes & ornaments. You can cover in fondant & detail in RI.
If you are only wanting to cut out circles or squares there are some really cute scenes you can do---just do the fondant as the background color. There are some in the galleries---think snowglobe!
