We’ve whipped up some fun ideas to use your springerle molds with fondant. Make base cupcakes and sugar cookies ahead of time and invite the kids and grandkids over to decorate! It’s an easy activity and the rewards are like a Pot o’ Gold!
We chose a variety of good luck molds: Mini Cloverleaf, Good Luck Knots, and Viele Glück (Good Luck in German). And most interesting is the Chimney Sweep. Did you know that in Europe if a bride sees a Chimney Sweep on her wedding day, that it is a sign of good things to come?
For basic icing recipes and techniques we recommend Arty McGoo’s Beginners Start Here videos. You’ll have fun watching the videos. (We wanted to rush into the kitchen and start playing!)
And for that brushed embroidery technique we again recommend Tunde Dukatsi’s Brush Embroidery video.
