Step 1: Get Cameo mold.
Step 2: Make fabulous cookies.
See? Easy peasy. And to make it even easier...make sure you order a setting mold to go with your cameo. Try to order it at the same time as the cameo. Don't be like me and order it the day before your cameo mold gets there. You'll NEVER be able to wait long enough to get the setting mold before trying out the cameo mold. If you forget to take my advice and now you are holding the cameo mold in your hot little hands and you simply can't wait for the setting mold to get to you, it's okay. There is a solution. First, put down the cameo mold. Then do a little online search and find a picture of a cameo setting that you absolutely love. (There is no sense making cookies that you don't absolutely love.) Copy and paste it into some kind of picture altering program to re-size it to match your cameo mold. Tape it on the back of a cookie sheet and tape some wax paper over the top of that. Mold your cameo and place on top of the picture of the cameo setting. Melt a bit of chocolate and while resisting the urge to eat melted chocolate straight from the bowl, pipe it on top of the setting and around the cameo. If you live somewhere real hot and humid like I do, it helps to put the cameos/settings in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Then you just pop them right off the sheet and on to your cookies -- or in to your mouth. (What?! Who would do that?) And there you have it. Beauty in sugar form.
