    • Roll out the coloured sugarpaste and cut a bauble using the cookie cutter used to create the cookies. Attach to the cookie using piping gel and remove a circle using the No18 tube to reveal the hole in the cookie.

    • For the purple bauble fill a piping bag with royal icing, attach the no 2 tube and pipe a swirl and coil pattern over the cookie. Once the royal icing has set, mix some lustre dust with water and paint over the pattern. Use a soft brush to spread white hologram dust over the cookie.
