When I was making wedding cookies samples I used a fondant embossing sheet on a few of them.
I liked the look of one sheet in particular and thought the pattern would look cute on lamb cookies.
You can read the post I wrote about how to use the embossing sheet on fondant here.

Here’s the quick recap ~

Roll the embossing sheet over the rolled out fondant.

Cut out the cookie shape with the cutter.

On some of the cookies I wanted to make a colored face so I took a decorating tip and used it as a cutter for the face and legs. It has a natural curve which looks nice.

Bond the fondant to the cookie with piping gel.

I used the embossed swirl pattern as a guide to make royal icing swirls using a #2 tip.
