Flower pot cookies by Bobbie Noto

The royal icing grapes adds to the Tuscany touch!

 This stucco/stone technique was inspired by a vase I found in Tuscany.

I have had this design in my mind for a few years now and I finally found a

technique to add that weathered look I loved.

I used a cupcake cutter for the flower pot (I love finding other uses for shape cutters).

The miniature roses and blossoms were created using a Wilton 101s nozzle.

If you have never piped miniature roses it will take practice

to achieve.

Flower pot cookies by Bobbie Noto

If you find the stippling is not as textured as the first few cookies wipe your brush on a damp paper towel to remover excess icing!

Lately I have been asked why I cover the cookies with fondant and royal icing.

I have found the fondant keeps the cookies soft, also with the texture of the

cookies combined with soft fondant and the crunch of the royal icing taste is amazing!

Although the petal nozzle is quite small it is imperative to use stiff consistency RI.
