1. Roll out the red fondant about 2mm thick and cut out a shape with the same cutter that you used for your cookie

2. Using a brush, lightly cover the cookie in a sugar syrup thickened with a little jam

3. With a sharp knife remove any parts you do not want in the original colour

4. Gently place the fondant on the cookie smoothing it with your hand.5. Repeat the process with any parts you would like in different colours. For the apple, we made the leaf green and the stalk
