To make 3D St. Patrick's Hat Cookies you need
Sugar cookie dough colored with Geen and Black, I used mint green with leaf green
Marzipan, colored with Gold yellow, you can substitute for fondant or modeling chocolate.
Royal icing (Small batch royal icing recipe)
3 fluted round cookies cutters from Bakedeco
I used Americolor Food Gel Colorings from
- Bake the cookies. You need 4 cookies per hat.3 are green and one ring is black, as seen in the picture below. Cut one large green round and 2 medium green round s and one medium black round. Bake, once cookies are baked and still hot use a small round cutter to cut out center from the large round and from the black round. Let the cookie cool completely before handling with your hands.
- Using marzipan colored with gold, roll the marzipan into mini balls and flat each ball into a small disk to form the coins.
- Using marzipan create a buckle, roll the marzipan into a rope then from it into a buckle, you can make it round or rectangle.
- Using royal icing stack cookies together, attach buckle onto the cookie using royal icing, and then fill the hat with marzipan coins.
