Have any of you taken a hot air balloon ride?
Any way, since I do not get to ride a balloon, I will make cookies, eat them and teach my child to eat them too!
This Hot Air Balloon Cookie cutter will take you up, up and away! Big in size and with plenty of space to work on many designs.
To make this cookies you will need:
Hot Air Balloon cookie cutter
Pastry bags, couplers and tip #1 and #2
Royal icing in Americolor Deep Pink and Black
Outline the balloon and basket using tip #2 ( I used different amounts of pink in my royal icing to get a lighter color to flood the cookies and a dark color for the outlines and details)
Flood the balloon using the lighter shade of pink Let your cookies dry overnight.
Use stiff icing consistency and tip 2 to make the small bunting. Start drawing a string that the bunting flags hang from, then outline and fill the little flags.
Add the suspension cables on the basket.
Another option when decorating the cookies is to add details while the icing is still wet. Your imagination is the limit.
