Edible Clay Cut-Out Cookies (Tutorial)






Textured edible clay can be used for more than just covering up the entire cookie.

How about cutting out a small shape in the center to show off the base coat of glaze on the cookie?


Start off with outlining and flooding the cookies with a base coat of glaze.
(see photos below of previously flooded cookies)

Allow them to dry overnight.

While they are drying, load the edible clay on a texture mat.
To review the process, check out this previous post on making textured edible clay.


Once the clay has been texturized,
cut out a piece of it with the same cookie cutter used for the original cookie.


Then using a smaller cutter, cut out a shape in the middle of the clay.


Carefully place the cut-out clay on top of the cookie.




So easy.....and yet it looks so complicated. :)
You can even use the small pieces of cut-out clay to add decor to other cookies.

Personal Side


I'm in Galveston Texas today.
Tomorrow we board the CookieCruise 2015 and sail to Cozomel. 
This is the first cruise of it's kind.......decorating cookies while sailing the seas.
I hope to get lots of photos and share with you our adventure soon.

Sadly, it is raining.....and will be pouring heavy rain with winds tomorrow.
But we won't let that dampen our spirits.......
Everyone is so excited about getting together and cookie-ing. :)

Textured Edible Clay-Covered Cookies (Tutorial)






I was so excited when I started finding silicone molds for edible clay that resembled a knitted-look.
I had tried to pipe layers of glaze to create knitted look, but it was never quite right.
And then I discovered these molds:

Cable Knit Silicone Mold

They work perfectly with the CookieCrazie Edible Clay.

Here's a tutorial on how I use the molds to cover the cookies with textured clay.
It is very similar to using fondant.....but tastes a whole lot better. :)

Firmly "load" the silicone molds with a layer of edible clay.
Be sure to press the clay firmly into all the nooks and crannies of the mold.

(P.S. I apologize that I can not figure out where I got the white Katy Sue vintage lace mold.)

Here's a photo of a bunch of silicone molds all ready to place in the freezer to firm them up.


Freeze the filled molds for at least 1 hour. Longer is better.

Once they are thoroughly frozen, carefully peel the clay off the mold.

Use the same cutter used to make the original cookie to cut out a perfectly fitted molded top.


Place it on top of the cookie and apply minimal pressure.
As the clay comes to room temperature, it gets softer and will adhere to the cookie.


To prevent disfiguring the clay,
allow the cookies to dry for at least 24 hours before packaging or stacking.
