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.
