Let's Get Started:
Bake, cool and cover your cookies a day prior to decorating. You may cover the cookies with plum colored fondant or royal icing - both coverings work perfectly.
Creating the base color:
Use petal dust for the best results - 2 parts violet, 1 part red - knead until amalgamated.
Fondant - Day 1:
Cover the cooled heart cookie with a plum/magenta fondant and allow to set over night. Cut out 1/8" thick fondant hearts and allow to dry over night.
