Prepare 500 g FunCakes Mix for Cookies according to the instructions on the packaging. Wrap in plastic foil and leave in the fridge for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (hot air oven 160°C).
Roll out the dough on a floured work surface to a thickness of about 2-3 mm and cut out hearts and circles as desired. Prick holes in the top of the hearts with the back of the brush. Place the dough shapes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake the cookies in the oven until lightly browned and cooked, about 12-16 minutes, and leave to cool flat on the counter.
Prepare 450 g FunCakes Mix for Royal Icing according to the instructions on the package. Divide this over 7 bowls. Dilute the icing drop by drop with some water until it has the thickness of a yoghurt. The 10 second rule applies here, if the thinned icing forms a smooth mirror again in 10 seconds, it is perfect. If it happens faster add some stiff icing, if it takes longer add some drops of water.
Colour 6 bowls with the 6 colours of gel, leaving 1 bowl white. Cover the bowls with a wet tea towel and leave for 20 minutes. Then prick out the air bubbles. Pour some of the white icing on a plate and, for each colour combination, pour diluted red/pink, light/dark green, blue/purple icing on the left and right. Go through it with a fork to marble it a little and dip the cookies in it. Let them dry flat, preferably overnight.
When they are dry, use a brush and copper paint to paint some of the veins on the cookies. Put a piece of ribbon through the holes in the hearts and tie it.
