Coneflower Cookies (Tutorial)






To make coneflower cookies you will need:


Cut out coneflowers with two circle cutters and a mini spade cutter as shown in photo.
Bake and cool cookies.


Outline petals with glaze in your choice of color. 
Outline bulb center of coneflower.

Flood petals and center.

Allow to dry overnight.

Using Americolor gels (I used some brown, gold, and white mixed together) 
with a small amount of almond extract.....
...add detail to the coneflower center.
(Step not photographed: Add lines to petals to give them more dimension.)

Just lovely Pam. Looking at them I wonder how it would work to use the ladybug cutter for these and then maybe only have to make two little triangle cuts for the petals... just a thought

Thanks Deborah (D.J.). What a great idea. What is so wonderful about our cookie world is that we can inspire others to come up with even better ideas than our own. :) ♥
