Awareness Ribbon Cookies - from Kiwicakes test kitchen

Many charities in New Zealand now identify with a specific colour ribbon to generate awareness and support for their cause. With an awareness ribbon cutter you can easily make coloured fondant cookies for charities you support throughout the year. Here are a couple of the well-known ones...

Breast cancer = Pink ribbon
Violence towards women = White ribbon
Epilepsy = Purple ribbon
Child poverty = Blue ribbon

This cookie has been overlaid with appropriately coloured fondant. It has been embossed with a floral texture mat from this set, shaped with the same ribbon cutter used for the cookies, stuck on with sugar glue, sprinkled with non-toxic hologram glitter and bagged with a ribbon tightly for freshness.

These are quick to make en mass and can be made ahead of time and frozen all ready-to-go.

With the same cutter you can make fish shapes by adding a candy eye to the side and suggesting gills by using 3 moon-like impressions from a scallop & comb tool. Its tail can be finished with markings from the comb end.
