Decorated Sugar Cookies - It's A Girl!

It's raining babies! Baby cookies are quickly becoming my most frequently ordered cookies, but I don't think I will ever tire of them. There are too many adorable designs out there to try.
For this set I tried out a new technique - covering a sugar cookie with delicious homemade fondant instead of the usual flooding with royal icing. It's a great option for when you have a ton of cookies that need to be flooded with one base color but you are short on time. Sometimes commercial fondant gets a bad rap for its bland and chalky taste, but  homemade marshmallow fondant is out of this world delicious. It literally tastes just like marshmallows.

I used Callye's tutorial for the swirl roses and Elise's recipe for the marshmallow fondant. And don't think for a second that I free-handed that cursive - Sweet Ambs and her tissue paper method  saved me there.
Honestly, where would I be without the Internet? ;-)
