- Make your cookie dough following the instructions in our ‘How to mould and bake perfect cookies’ post.
- Roll out your cookie dough until it’s 1cm thick and use your bobble hat cutter to cut out as many hats as you would like.
- Place on a baking tray and bake.
- Once your hats are baked, allow them to cool. You can either wait until your cookies are completely cool and then follow the steps below, attaching your decorations to your cookie as you go. Or you can create the decorations in advance and then simply attach on top of your cookies once the cookies have cooled.
- Colour your sugarpaste using food colouring. They look beautiful in either pastel or festive colours. We always use either Rainbow Dust or Sugar Flair food colouring.
- Start by dusting your knit/crochet effect mould with cornflour and tapping out any excess.
- Roughly roll out your sugarpaste on your work surface before placing into your mould. Start by using your fingers to press and secure your paste into one edge of the mould. Take a rolling pin and begin to roll from the edge that you have just secured. Roll firmly into the mould until you can begin to see the pattern through the back of your sugarpaste.
- Tear away any excess either with your fingers or with a palette knife before turning your mould over and peeling back. Your sugarpaste should drop out easily.
- Use your bobble hat cookie cutter to cut out a hat from your moulded sugarpaste. Before cutting – make sure that the knitted pattern is running in the correct way – down or across your hat. Place to one side.
- Mould a trim for your hat using one of our various knit/crochet effect moulds. In the video above we have used our Rustic Cable Knit Mould. Measure it against the bottom of your hat before trimming to size with a cutting wheel and attaching with edible glue.
- Roll a small ball of sugarpaste and attach and gently flatten to the bobble on your hat. Lightly cover with edilble glue.
- Soften sugarpaste using Trex (white vegetable fat). Roll into balls and press through a sieve to create the fluffy bobble texture. Press through until it is the desired length. Use a palette knife to gently scrape the ‘fluff’ off and take over to your bobble. Attach to your bobble. Repeat the process 4-5 times until the bobble is covered.
- Now you can mould accessories for your hat from our various moulds such as Rustic Cable Knit Mould, Baby Buttons Mould, Buttons Mould, Flower Buttons Mould.
Oh, the weather outside is frightful!
