25 toadstools sitting on a tray

What better way to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon, after the hustle and bustle of the last few weeks? Making toadstool biscuits, of course. We had so much fun making these seasonal biscuits. The biscuits are just your everyday, run-of-the-mill sugar cookie recipe. Covered in white icing made from icing sugar. Then cut the toadstool tops out of red fondant icing, using the top of the cookie cutter. A straw to make the holes. You can imagine that was a very popular job. Found if we put the red tops on the toadstools  before the white icing set, the icing would push through the holes. Perfect for the white spots.

Finally a green icing pen for the grass, and then 25 autumn toadstools were ready to eat. Oh wait. Make that 24.
