The Scrabble possibilities are endless when you know the nautical alphabet or you can make up your message flags.

I made these cookies quickly and just for fun because I’ve had the idea for while. If I had more drying time I would have used royal icing on the fondant flags instead of using the food markers but they are fine too, just a different look.

The rope is made from fondant. I rolled it over a fine spring to imprint the lines and then brushed gold luster powder over it to bring out the impressions.
