A small collection of cookies from the past few weeks, all using molds, either made of wood or silicone. Most of them I’ve had for a very long time, but you can find a lot available at etsy.com. Just search for fondant or cookie molds, or springerle molds and grab what screams your name. The advantage of molded cookies is that they need no icing. Painting is also optional but how can I avoid so much fun?
Normally I use this type of molds for Springerle cookies, but this time I just made sugar cookies flavored with hazelnut and orange. They were painted with luster powder + vodka.
BEE IN LOVE
These were painted with Sugarprism and the details of the hive painted with gold. Some steps shown below…
I just adore this mold (from Gingerhaus), a bit hard to find, it is now unavailable again. I had been flirting with it for the longest time, checking the store at etsy, until one day I got lucky and there were a couple for sale. It works well with any type of cookie, in this case I used strawberry flavored cookie dough with a touch of red dye. Details with luster gold and a spray with PME pearl. But even plain they are quite adorable, in my opinion.
I HEART YOU
Chocolate Dough + luster powders &vodka. Mold available here.
Super simple, just a brush with gold over naked chocolate cookies.
Silicone molds sold for fondant, but also work well to mold cookies, if your recipe is firm enough ad has no leavening agent, as the mold haste many details.
Molds are a lot of fun to play with, and make decorating so easy. Even plain the cookies will look great.
I hope you could find some inspiration in this post.
