After i cut out the images for the cookie, there were still big scraps of wafer paper left. Such a shame to throw it away! Fortunately, I recently had bought a paper hole puncher just for this occasion! Well, actually, it was for another glitter/confetti cake that i saw online in case i ever wanted to make one.
So i took some food coloring pens, randomly colored in blocks of color then i just started punching. The result was so fun!!! happy confetti circles, all ready to decorate a cookie!
I brushed on a thin layer of piping gel, and sprinkled and pressed the wafer paper confetti right on to it. It was kinda fun to eat too! I will definitely be doing this again!
My friend who ordered the Mummy Boy Cookies, and the Friday the 13th Cake asked for some cookies to take with her to Comic Con in SD this year. She sent me these images, and I thought, how am I going to be able to get these images onto a cookie, especially with all the color and details, given the limited amount of time I have? Then i remembered wafer paper, and had the images printed. They turned out great! I iced the cookies with plain white royal icing, and then used a light spread of piping gel to get the images on to the cookie, then piped a red royal icing border to finish it off. I was wary of using wafer paper because the last time i used it on a cake, it wrinkled due to the moisture. (Now i know there's a difference between wafer paper, and icing sheets!)
