Insight, a local television program, came to our shop and wanted a simple candy making demonstration. It is a two-part video showing different types of easy candy to make for the holidays, including barks, molded barks, dark chocolate mint cookies, dipped caramels and bon bons. Find the video link here for part one and part two.
This pumpkin cookie box was created with Nordicware’s 3-D pumpkin pan. The cookie dough was rolled and then formed into the sprayed pan. After the bowl was baked and cooled, I covered it with orange rolled fondant and added rolled fondant accents. The sugar cookies inside the box were iced with run sugar icing. This project was one of ten of my projects that were featured in “1000 ideas for decorating cupcakes, cookies & cakes.” Whenever I need some inspiration, this is my go-to book! It is full of beautiful confectionary projects from around the world.
