Knead each color of fondant well and cover with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out. Choose three contrasting colors, such as black, white and teal (Image 1), and lightly knead the three colors together (Image 2). Tip: Don’t knead them too much or the colors will become muddy. Use a 3" round cookie cutter to stamp out rounds from the fondant (Image 3). Repeat these steps with the remaining fondant. Let the rounds dry for 5 minutes before proceeding with the next step.

Use a small paintbrush to dot corn syrup, which will act as edible glue, on top of the cookies (Image 1). Place a marbled fondant round on top of each cookie (Image 2).

Combine gold luster dust and drops of vodka in a small condiment cup and stir until a thin gold paint consistency is achieved (Image 1). Load a stiff-bristle brush with the paint. Use your fingertip to bend the brush bristles backward (Image 2), then release over the cookie so gold paint flecks the surface of the fondant (Image 3). 

Allow the cookies to stand until the paint is dry, about 20 minutes. Package them in cellophane bags for New Year’s Eve favors, or display them on a fancy serving tray on a dessert buffet.
