For the Cookies

Roll out cookie dough and cut to size and shape required. Bake and cool.

Brush on a little apricot glaze.

Roll out sugarpaste (black or white), cut out, and place onto cookies. Allow to dry.

For The Speckled Decoration

Choose two or more colours from the Colour Splash range, paint ‘splodges’ with plenty of colour onto the cookies at random. Take a piece of cling film, ‘scrunch’ it up and place onto the cookie.


Alternatively, Dip a stiff brush (such as a toothbrush - To be used for sugarcraft use only) and 'flick' the paint onto the sugarpaste.

Leave it to dry completely before removing the cling film.  

Top Tip

This technique gives some amazing patterns which may be enhanced with further decoration such as piping, adding tiny flowers, jelly gems, outlining shapes with the fine tip on Colour Splash edible pens etc.
