Just wondering if anyone has attempted the Star Wars cookies from Williams-Sonoma yet. I have them on my counter, but am putting it off b/c I love the idea of the imprints, but am not sure how they will help me get the cookies decorated once the icing is on. I use glace and it's usually a fairly thick layer that would certainly cover any markings from the presses...thoughts?
check out bakerella! She did them a few weeks ago!
Imprints on cookies rarely help me. I tend to have the image in front of me and free hand it.
I just did mine plain.
Next time I think I will just dye my dough green for Yoda and use a extra dark cocoa for Darth.
My grandsons loved them plain. They didn't care if they were iced!
They still turned out great.
Just googled those cookie cutters. So cool. Am going to get some. Might use them some for the family, but they are really going to be for me.
I used MMF to cover my cookies, cut with the cutters using the imprints, and then royal for the details. They looked so cute! I haven't seen the Bakerella ones yet, I need to hop over there and check those out!
See Bridget's examples at Bake at 350. She did a great job!
I love the ones from Williams Sonoma. I don't use them for cookies though, but for fondant cut-outs on my cakes. See the Star Wars cake in my photos.
here's a link to the ones i did.. the impressions didnt really help at all.. but then again i was probably doing it all wrong... i thought they turned out ok for just looking at the box to do most of the decorating
Thank you, everyone! For some reason I wasn't getting updates on this thread and I have been too busy to stop by, knowing it could never be a "quick" visit to CC!
BTW, What is MMF?
I have them and I have made them a few times. They were fun. I didn't use the imprints because I was worried that the glace would go into the lines and cause the glace to look uneven.
