Introduction: Hidden QR Code Cookies
My Daughter Shelbie and I made Cookies with Hidden QR codes. The QR code is hidden by Frosting and when you lick it off the frosting, the QR is revealed.
First we decided what QR code to use.
"Shelbie's Cookies are great!"
Then I created a Stamp made from basswood pieces, 1 inch and 1/2 inch
There were 625 pixels in the QR code so we needed 315 long and 315 short. I cut them out with a razor saw and miter box.
I glued them into place using Elmers glue. Its important to remember to make the stamp mirrored.
Then we made a simple sugar cookie recipe and a fudge buttercream frosting.
We rolled the cookies really thin then pressed the stamp into the cookie.
Then baked them quickly so they wouldnt rise. and distort the QR code.
It took us several tries to get a QR code to scan. We will keep refining this idea.
