Ball of Yarn Cookie
On cakecentral.com, there is a forum section that is all about cookies. Every month, the cookie club chooses a different theme and the members design new cookies and share new techniques with each other. The theme this month was "Inspirational Women." I decided to make a cookie that reminded me of my grandma.
These are strawberry cake mix cookies. Grandma always has a great garden and let us pick strawberries from it. She also taught us how to make strawberry jam. She taught me how to knit and crochet, so I decided to decorate the cookie to look like a ball of yarn.
I placed a flat circle of fondant on top of the cookie, then I used a sharp knife to carve the lines into the circle of fondant. Then I just rolled a small piece of fondant into a thin "snake" and coiled it on top to look like the end of the yarn.
