Fondant Inlay on Cookies, Day of the Dead Cookies


Let's decorate some cookies. Decorated skull cookies are really popular during  the Day of the Dead  celebrations. Though mostly made using royal icing decorations they can be simplified and made with fondant, too.
If  you don't like to work with royal icing, fondant  is a super easy alternative for you. Now when it comes to what kind of fondant to use.  You can either buy what's readily available(I hear some of them taste weird and others taste great, I literally have no experience with store bought fondant) or you can make it from scratch.  I always make my fondant. Making  marshmallow fondant  is  a lot easier than it sounds. You can find a recipe I like to use here.

Bellow is a video of how I made these cookies. I used a simple inlay technique that is super easy and delivers results.
