What you need to make halloween cookie cottage:
- 500 g FunCakes Mix for cookies
- 500 g FunCakes mix for Royal Icing
- FunCakes Fondant Green
- FunCakes Fondant Orange
- FunCakes Fondant Black
- FunColours Paste Food Colour Green
- FunColours Paste Food Colour Orange
- FunColours Paste Food Colour Black
- 150 g unsalted butter
- 60 ml water
- 1 egg (approx. 50 g)
- FunCakes decorating bag
- FunCakes Nonpareils Halloween
- Cottage cookie cutter
Preheat the oven at 180°C (convection oven 160°C).
Prepare 500 g FunCakes Mix for Cookies as indicated on the package. Wrap it in cling film and let it set in the fridge for at least an hour.
Roll the dough out on a floured surface (0.5 cm thickness). Cut with the elements of the cake cottage the dough and bake them in the middle of the preheated oven for approx. 12 minutes till golden yellow. Let the cookies cool down.
Prepare the FunCakes Icing Sugar as indicated on the package. Mix the icing for 7-10 minutes on low speed to a stiff, white icing. The icing is ready when it is bright white, has lost its shine and you can pull peaks that don’t fall back.
Tip! If using a hand-held mixer be careful to ensure that it does not jam!
To use the icing as frosting on the cookies, you have to adulterate the icing. Add per 200 gram icing 1 teaspoon of water. Make sure you keep a bowl of the solid consistency icing. This will be the “glue” to put the cookies cottage together.
Divide the icing over 4 bowls and add in 3 bowls the food colouring. Fill the decorating bags with the icing and decorate the cookies items with the icing and the nonpareils. Let it dry overnight.
“Glue” the following day the cottage together with the solid consistency icing. Finish the cottage off with some pumpkins and spider made of fondant. Or use your own creativity.
