In advance: On waxed paper-covered board using royal icing, make 4 tip 24 swirl drop flowers for each cookie. Pipe tip 2 dot centers. Make extras to allow for breakage; let dry.
Cut cookies using car cutter; bake and cool. Outline car and window areas using tip 3 and full-strength color flow; let dry. Flow in car using thinned color flow; let dry.
Using royal icing, pipe in wheels with tip 7 (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Pipe tip 7 outline running board and wheel wells. Add tip 3 dot hubcaps and headlights. Pipe tip 3 curving outline streamer; attach flowers.
For disc candy faces, pipe tip 2 dot eyes, outline mouth and pull-out hair.
For veil, roll out white fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut a 3 x 1 in. wide piece, narrowing to 1/2 in. wide. Attach veil with dots of icing; attach heads in window. Pipe tip 3 zigzag crown.
Perfect for classic borders or cloudlike decorations, dots are a versatile technique that can be piped in a range of sizes. The dot technique can be used as a simple border for cakes and cookies, as well as for icing cupcakes or piping meringues.

I made these cookies for a small wedding party for my daughter. They came out just like the picture. They were not very hard to make but they required a lot of detail and steps. Plan to do a few things ahead and it will cut the preparation time. I used chocolate fondant for the wheels and vanila tootsie rolls for the faces. I colored the cookies one night and made the flowers ahead as suggested. I wrapped them on small silver covered cake boards with pretty wired ribbon and the guests took them home as favors. They were a great hit!
