My friend Ginger asked me to make some cookies for her daughter's Rapunzel themed party. She had made invitations with a braid of hair coming out of a window so I told her I would try to do that on a cookie!
I couldn't think of a way to do it with Royal Icing so I made some fondant (recipe here) and it was so much fun! I love making fondant, well.....ever since I found out you can make it in a mixer. I tried making some by hand last year for my son's birthday cake and it was so hard and I said I would never make it again! But I found this recipe and technique and I have a whole new love for fondant. And it tastes yummy! The mixer does the work for you and all you do is knead it a little bit and you're done!
