A friend had a "Dead Rock and Roll" theme Halloween party last Saturday evening. Everyone had to come dressed as there favorite dead rockstar. I was asked to bring something sweet to eat, so with all the hype over 3D movies these last couple of years, I wanted to make a special yummy treat that would have that 3D magic. You can use any rubber stamp image to make these cookies. It was so  easy to make and it was a huge hit at the party! Everyone was walking around with their 3D glasses on eating the 3D rock and roll cookies - it was so much fun!!!!

What you will need to make theses cookies

Step 2: Rolling out the fondant

Roll out your fondant on a clean surface. Once you get a nice size of the rolled fondant use your round cookie cutter and cut out as many round pieces you can.

Felt - this piece will be your stamping pad that you will put the gel food coloring on. You will need 2 pieces of felt - 1 for the red and 1 for the blue. Make sure you have enough gel on the pad to cover the image of your rubber stamp. Be careful to only get the gel on the image not on the negative space. It can make the cookie have a "ugly" spot.

Using your blue food coloring gel pad pick up some ink on your rubber stamp and press the image to the prepared round pieces of fondant. Do all your pieces of fondant because you are going to clean your stamp with soap and water to get it clean for the next  color.

Mmmm...

I do not want to be killjoys, but you can not have 3D effect if both images are identical, as in this case. In fact, if you see the images with red-cyan glasses, you do not see stereo view.
I was just thinking the same, but I wonder if instead the picture will be 2D, yet "jump out" from the surface, kinda like a magic eye picture.
Yes, it is so.

How do you actualy "stamp" the fondant? - Do you just press down lightly on the felt to transfer the colouring?

Yes - just pickup some color from the felt then press into the fondant.
