Prepare 1kg of FunCakes Mix for Cookies as indicated on the package, wrap in cling film and leave to set in the refrigerator for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C).
Knead the cookie dough from the refrigerator well and roll it out to a thickness of 2-3 mm and cut out 3 pineapples. Cut out a round from two pineapples in the same place. Bake the cookies for about 15-20 minutes until light brown. Let them cool down flat on the countertop.
Place a cookie with a hole in it on a piece of parchment paper on the countertop. Melt some FunCakes Isomalt as directed on the package and pour it into the hole of the pineapple. Let this dry thoroughly.
Prepare 450 g FunCakes Mix for Royal Icing as indicated on the package and divide it into 2 portions. Colour 1 portion light green and 1 portion light yellow with the Food Colour Gels. Dilute this coloured icing with some water. It should get yogurt thickness.
TIP: For royal icing, the 10-second rule applies! If your icing forms a smooth mirror in your tray within 10 seconds, then your icing is too thin and will drip off your cake. You can correct this by stirring in some stiff icing. If your icing is not smooth after 10 seconds, it is too thick and will not flow nicely on the cake. Correct this by adding water drop by drop until it reaches the desired yogurt thickness.
Put the diluted icing into decorating bags with a coupler and decorating tip #003 and decorate the pineapple with an even layer of icing. Let this dry for at least 3 hours before applying the stripes.
Put the leftover icing back into a clean dish and cover with cling film wrap, press the cling film ON the icing, this will prevent it from drying out! Before you use it again, colour it slightly darker with the colour gels and put it in decorating bags with a coupler and decorating tip #003.
Stick the decorated cookie, with hole, with a little diluted icing on the whole (bare) cookie. Sprinkle in the resulting hole some of the FunCakes Sprinkle Medley Happy and put a few Sugar Decoration Pineapples in it. Stick the decorated cake, with the isomalt heart, with some diluted icing on the other cakes and let dry well. With the edible pen, make a face on the cake.
