Marble + Gold Biscuit Tutorial
Things you’ll need:
Hexagon cookie cutter (try Ebay)
Hexagon cookies (see our recipe on YouTube)
To make marble icing, use a cocktail stick or the handle of a teaspoon to make lines of food colour across the top of your fondant, then knead gently. Your hands will be as marbled as the icing, so you’ll be bang on trend as well.
Roll out and cut your hexagons. With a clean paintbrush, add some water to the top of your biscuits, then carefully lift the icing onto the biscuits and smooth. Be gentle, fondant likes to be handled like a baby.
Gold leaf is stickier than a wet shower curtain, so be careful not to get too close or you will literally have the midas touch. Add a tiny bit of water to the biscuit where you’d like the gold leaf to stick, and holding the back of the gold leaf paper, press it down onto the biscuit. Hold your breath, pray, and slowly lift it away. Tidy up the gold with a paintbrush if necessary.
You have a pretty awesome looking biscuit there, right?! Gold leaf behaves like the diva it is, so embrace the imperfections if there are any.
Let it set fully before attempting to move it anywhere, and then dazzle your friends, family, and anyone else who cares to look. Just don’t let them eat it. You’ve done the hard work, so you deserve this biscuit.
