My cookie wall art is completely edible, but I think it is too pretty to eat  ;)

I made this cookie wall art to serve a few purposes. First of all  it  served as a pretty decoration for my  holiday cookie exchange. Second, the guests at the party were allowed to take a cookie directly off the wall to take home as a party favor and third I  made more trays full to give to family members as gifts.

I used the same recipe as I did in this instructable...  Kids Coloring Cookies.

Bake your sugar cookies.Be sure to use the same cutter for the cookies and the fondant/ gumpaste.  
I used gumpaste because that is what I had on hand. But you could use fondant. Start off by rolling out your gumpaste/fondant  to about 1/4 inch thick. Press your impression mat or stamp into the gumpaste/fondant. If you are using fondant you may need to dust the stamp with a little powdered sugar so that it will release a little easier. Continue stamping it until you have enough stamped to cut out your cookie cutters. Cut out the shape of your desired  cookie cutter. Repeat until you have all that you need.



TIPS:
*the metal cookie cutters make cleaner cuts
*if you use plastic cookie cutters like i did you may need to smooth out the edges of each one
*sprinkle a tiny bit of powdered sugar or cornstarch on your mat before you roll out the gumpaste/fondant

Okay, I must have been sleeping under a rock for the past umpteen years. A stamp on dough, then cut with a cookie cutter. This. Is. Fabulous! I love, love, love this!

But just to be clear, I stamped into fondant/gumpaste.
