I found these Sugar Sheets at Michael’s and decided to give them a try. They come in different colors and can be used to decorate cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. You can cut them into any shape you desire with cookie cutters or cooking shears.
The sugar sheets require moisture to adhere to your baked good, so you need to put them in place while the icing is still moist. This means that you should have your design figured out ahead of time.
When using cookie cutters, press down hard onto the sugar sheet.
Then pull the sheet up while continuing to hold the cookie cutter in place.
After you’ve cut out your shapes, ice your baked good, and then carefully place the cutouts where you want them to go.
I used my sugar sheets cutouts on these Chocolate Cherry Cookies. Didn’t they turn out cute!
To make these cookies, I used the recipe for Chocolate Mint Cookies, but I replaced the Andes mints with Andes cherry jubilee thins. I bought the cherry ones at Target right before Christmas, but they can also be ordered from amazon.com: Andes Candy
