Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
I actually made these totally sweet confections for my guild’s Secret Santa, but I never got around to posting them.
About a year ago, Harley sent me pictures of these beautiful Horde cookies from C is for Cupcakes with one sentence: “but how do we make them?!” They’re pretty fancy looking – with fondant maybe? …probably? I haven’t tried working with fondant yet. It sounds like a lot of work. Maybe I’ll make it a goal to try working with fondant by the end of this year. Hm…
I was pretty intrigued by the idea of making Horde cookies for months – I didn’t want to put a lot of time into planning them, but I really wanted to make them. Eventually, I got off my lazy butt and started researching custom cookie cutters. I severely mangled a few cookie cutters before I ended up with this thing:
Man, I need some RL blacksmithing skills. >__>
The hardest part was flopping these symbols onto the oval portion. The little arms would rip off, and I’d have to roll it out again. I’m sure if I had the patience to stick it in the fridge after every step (roll it out, stick it in the fridge, cut, stick it in the fridge, flop, stick it in the fridge, repeat), I could have avoided some real aggravation, but… *ahem* Thrall’s balls! The Horde doesn’t wait for anyone!
Anyway, I hope you have a great day!
