I frequent Anne's shop @ JB ~ Bakewell to stock up my baking ingredients & gadgets. Last week when I was at her shop (again:P) she taught me how to make the standard Strawberry fingers, which she said it was a very popular snack in Malaysia recently... everyone is making this cookie! Okie, I bought a pack of bread crumb, strawberry melts & strawberry fingers pre-mix and try try lah!
After the cookies r made & cooled, dipped with the strawberry melts, sprinkle some bread crumbs...
1) same as Anne's method, pipe very fine zig-zags with white melts over the bread crumbs.
2) cut cookies into shapes of candies or ribbon... dipped with strawberry melts, pipe little white and blue dots, decorate with mini silver beads sprinklers
And YES! Dipping cookies with candy melts or melted chocolate is fast and easy compared to the flooding method, using royal icing :D This saves lots of time and prevent the cookies from 漏风during decoration.
