preparedpantry describes the process of covering sugar cookies with fondant.
Her first step is to purchase the fondant at a local store. Once done, you can go on to use food coloring to make the fondant different colors, by putting small amounts of food coloring into the fondant with a toothpick until you get your desired color. After all fondant is colored, you then roll out the fondant until it reaches the desired thickness. Using a cookie cutter you cut out the designs of your cookies into the fondant. Using a small amount of water you coat the back of the fondant to provide a sort of sticky surface which will allow the fondant to stick to the cookie. Then using a bench scraper she cuts other colors of fondant into stripes to place on top of the previous fondant cutout. Polka dotted cookies are then shown.
