Chinese New Year Cookies

chinese new year wafer paper

 

Ring in the year of the Ox with these colorful Chinese New Year Cookies. Available in Animal or Zodiac wafer paper designs. Never tried using wafer paper? Do not fear! Wafer Paper is an edible starch based confection, made of potato starch, water and vegetable oil. It has been printed with food safe ink. It is simple, mess free, and creates amazing masterpieces!

To decorate cookies, simply trace the shape of the cookie you wish to decorate with a cookie cutter. The cookie needs to be frosted with buttercream, royal icing or fondant. If applying the design to royal icing, the icing must be completely dry for best results. Simply spread a thin layer of light corn syrup to the back of your paper and then apply to the cookie. To ensure a smooth finish, turn the cookie over, wafer paper side down, on a piece of parchment paper for approximately 30 minutes. To completely dry, turn the cookie design side up for 12 hours. You can add a 3 dimensional effect by adding small sugar pearls, dragees, sugar decorations or edible glitter. To adhere, just use a small dot of clear piping gel. Store in an airtight container.
