In this vintage shoe cookie tutorial, I show you how I decorate these shoes using fondant and simple techniques such as dragees, embossing, and metallic finish. These are great give away to any lady as a Valentine treat or as cookie favors after a special celebration.
Which of these do you like the best? The lace effect of the bas relief? My favorite is the lace effect.
Personally, I love such decorated cookies. And sometimes I make these to give away as little gifts and favors to my kids' teachers, customers.
I have used my Chocolate Espresso Cookie recipe for this, but you could use my Vanilla or Chocolate Sugar Cookie recipe, or try the gingerbread cookie recipe for this. If you prefer an eggless recipe then you must see my Eggless Vanilla Sugar Cookies or Eggless Chocolate Sugar Cookies. As long as you can roll it and it won't spread too much. That's the cookie you wanna use.
Now, I always decorate my cookies with fondant or modeling chocolate. Yes, modeling chocolate works just as well.

It's not always possible to find the exact item that I have used. Often, I buy things on impulse on eBay and Amazon and then you don't see those finds again. So, here's the closest I can find.
For this one I have use a pretty baby pink fondant with gold dragees and a bow silicon mold.
Here, I have actually embossed the fondant with a lace mat and then brushed with edible metallic gold luster dust and a bow silicon mold.
For this shoe cookie, I have use an embossed rolling pin black fondant, metallic gold luster dust and bow silicon mold.
And here I have used baby pink fondant, Bas relief silicon mold and bow silicon mold.
Well, I do hope you like this tutorial. Wouldn't that make a lovely gift for a lovely lady this Valentine's Day?
