Graduation Cap Cookies

Graduation is right around the corner for all of you Seniors out there! Senioritis is no joke, and neither are these cookies. I used the Wilton Graduation Cap cookie cutter to start off this design. I used the basic flooding consistency royal icing in Super Black by AmeriColor (#4 piping tip). Then I used the same Super Black food coloring and created a piping consistency royal icing to pipe the design of the cap (#4 piping tip). Once that dried, I added the colored tassel. I was not happy with the consistency of the icing that I used on the tassel, but they still turned out great!

Puppy Pawty, WOOF!

One of my co-workers is throwing a puppy party for one of her friends! I had such a fun time decorating these cookies just because I love my dogs so much too. I used some new techniques with these cookies in order to give them some depth. I would do sections of the dog house and the paw print let them dry and then do another section so that the icing did not run together – it created almost a 3D effect. For the fire hydrant, I used AmeriColor Super Black food coloring and a paint brush and painted on the design. So fun!

Happy Birthday, Big!

I made these beauties for my best friend’s 24th birthday this past Saturday. As always I flood the cookies with a royal icing – I used a #2 tip for the smaller cookies and a #4 tip for the large Tiffany Blue cookies. After the flooding icing dried, I used a cookie stencil and Wilton Color Mist in gold for the filigree design. Then I added all of the script work with a #4 piping tip with piping consistency icing using AmeriColor Super Black food coloring. I used gold luster dust to add the details to the 24 cookies. These were so fun to make just because I knew that I would want these for my birthday too! They are very feminine, simple, and sophisticated – wait am I describing the cookie, myself, or my best friend? Happy Birthday, Kayla!

Birthday Surprises!

Birthday cookies for my co-worker 🙂


As I pride myself on keeping up with my friends’ birthdays, I let one slip off the radar for this month! Fortunately, I can whip up some cookies faster than I can pick out a gift. I made these cookies for my friend Ashley’s 23rd birthday (which is today – I could not have been more last minute). I used flood consistency royal icing and Wilton Color Mist on the number cookies. I used a pearl luster dust on the other cookies and used piping consistency royal icing. Happy Birthday, Ashley!!!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 

img_1532  St. Patrick’s Day is my husband’s birthday, so I wanted to make some fun and festive cookies to honor this special day! I used a four leaf clover cookie cutter and flooded them with green royal icing using a #2 tip. Once the cookies were dry, I used a polka-dot cookie stencil and Wilton Color Mist in gold. This was my first time using Wilton Color Mist, and I have mixed feelings about it. I did not feel like there was great pigmentation to the mist, and if you used to much, it was extremely runny. It would work better on cookies with a lighter color for the frosting base for sure, but it was fun to play around with.

Easter Cookies

Easter cookies – Peeps!

I have been obsessively following my fellow cookie fanatics on Pinterest and Instagram, and I fell in love with the Peeps, Easter cookies. They were pretty easy to make, but the colored sugar got EVERYWHERE. I used a flooding constistency royal icing, and then I added the colored sugar while the icing was still wet. The colored sugar made the cookies look like actual Peeps – so fun! Once the cookies dried, I piped eyes and a nose with piping consistency royal icing with a #2 piping tip.
