I only have the 1/4 sheet and 8" round icing sheets. Can I use the 1/4 sheet to make icing images for 3" round cookies? would I just print them on the sheet and cut them out? If anyone has done this can you please give me some pointers? I do not have time to go and get the 3" circle sheets.

I had some images printed at the grocery. I then sterilized some scissors, and cut the images out just like paper. It worked great. (Cub scout logo cookies in my pix)

Hi Sandra,
Using scissors is probably your best bet and another idea would be using an exacto knife with a 3" or close to template. Sometimes you have a glass, cookie mold or even print out a 3" circle onto card stock and use the exacto knife or razor to cut around the template. Hope this helps.

Hi Sandra, welcome to cc. Here is how I cut my circles. I bought a scrap booking punch, the largest circle I could find. Link is below, although, I bought mine at Michaels.

It cuts a perfect 2 in circle, for use on 3 in cookies. You have to separate the icing sheet from the backing, because the punch will not cut them together, but believe it or not, the icing sheet holds up fine.

If I am going to use the images right away, I do not bother to punch the backing. If I am going to store them, I punch circles out of the backing and layer the image and backing together again. Works great for me.


Cookies I made this way:

Thanks for the advise. I think I will buy a scrapbooking punch on my way home. Seems like the quickest and easiest solution. My mom might even have one for me to borrowicon_smile.gif
