CHRISTMAS CUPCAKE / COOKIE TEXTURE TOPS
- Set of 3 mats
- Each mat a design repeated four times
- Mats are 7-5/8 x 7-5/8"
- Designs are approximately 3-1/4"
- For best flavor, generously ice the cupcake with a delicious icing before adding the fondant circle. Rolled fondant should be thin.
- Use either side of the mat. One side will give a raised impression, while the other will give a recessed impression.
- The diameter of baked and iced cupcakes may vary according to recipe, amount of batter, and amount of icing used. Choose a cutter sized to completely cover the top of the iced cupcake.

To Add Contrasting Colors
Color details with food color markers or food color thinned with water. If using food color markers, allow the fondant-covered cupcake to harden overnight before coloring. Thinned royal icing may also be used to add color to the fondant-covered treats. Pipe contrasting colors of thinned royal icing into the recessed area.
