Fondant animals on cookies:  I learned how to handle fondant from @Kim Damon.

Since Kim makes animals on cookies, I decided to make animals, too.  Since 2018 is Year of the Dog, these are Daddy dog, Mommy dog and their puppies.  In addition to that, I tried to use icing as little as possible for this project. 

Thanks to Kim, I got a chance to use fondant on cookies.  To tell the truth, I wanted to make mischievous puppies but they came out very well-behaved ones.  Well, nothing is easy for the first time.

The mats where puppies are on are made with colored fondant and @SugarVeil Icing mat.  I have heard from @Manu, SugarVeil’s mats can be used for fondant, too.  So I tried this to emboss the design.   

Again, thank you, Kim, I was afraid that nobody was going to do this challenge together with me. 

These are my fondant puppies

Hi @Kim Damon

It took long time for me to make those dogs, I kneaded them again and again, then the fondant got dry.

There is a way to make it soft again with a tiny bit of butter or crisco. I imagine that was pretty frustrating. Could be old (in the store to long) or too much Tylos powder (if you used that)? But you would never know there was a struggle by how cute they turned out!

Oh butter!, thank you, Kim.  This is really something new to me. 

Oh my goodness!  These puppies are ADORABLE!!! I can't believe this is the first time you have used fondant!  @Kim Damon must be one fabulous teacher! I love how each puppy has it's own little personality, and the use of the textured fondant bases are a terrific addition. Most of all, I am so glad that you and Kim got to connect and collaborate! Clearly, it was a fruitful cookie connection!
