I would use a silicone mold with fondant. Google silicone lace molds and you may find this pattern of something close.
Thanks for your reply. I assumed a silicone mold but it was the perfect circular shape that stumped me. I've only been able to find rectangles :)
AI thought King Arthur flour had something like that in their catalog but I can't find it now. I'll keep looking...
not exactly the same but you get three ;)
Oh thank you everyone for your wonderful replies! This forum is just terrific!
AIf you don't want to use fondant there is a cookie called "springerle" It is a traditional German biscuit or cookie that has been stamped with a mold or special rolling pin and allowed to dry before baking
Depending on the mold you use, your recipe and color choices you can end up with a very intricate design
Oh wow Jackie, they are gorgeous! It's started me on a whole other train of thought. I've never seen them before but will google away.
Thank you so much.
I love the springerle molds Karen is talking about. I bought mine from houseonthehill.net. They have a few recipes on their site, video on how to make springerle, and a beautiful online catalog. I made the cookies at Christmas and next I want to try the molds with rolled buttercream to use on cupcakes.
Thank you so much for putting me on to these. I just browsed their catalogue, isn't the detail incredible?
