Mini-Bandana Cookie Toppers
It’s almost the weekend, but you still have time to make a quick Memorial Day cookie treat. These minis are even easier than regular bandana cookies.
To make these, you’ll need:
- red and blue twenty-second icing
- black food color marker
- white piping icing and a #1 or #1.5 tip
- mini-cookies in the shape of your choice
I used squares, but circles, stars, or even flower cookies, like these by Sweet T Cookies would be adorable also!
All you need to do is cover flood your cookie with 20-second icing. Let it dry completely, and follow my bandana cookie instructions to complete the look. This is also a super quick, no outlining way of making large bandana cookies.
The only variation will be the border…if you have a straight sided cookie you can still do the ruffle, however with the scalloped border I had to change my method just a little.
When they are ready, just lay them on a frosted cupcake. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tidy Mom’s easy cupcake recipe. I am admittedly CAKE CHALLENGED, however, since I found this recipe, I have managed to make pretty, uniform cupcakes without batter all over my kitchen.
Speaking of perfect cupcakes, I also LOVE this post on making uniform cupcakes by My Baking Addiction.
And, since it saved me even more time, I used store bought frosting. Don’t hate me…I’m a cookie girl through and through.
In any case, these are easy and fun, and can work in many different ways…as toppers, minis, or as an accompaniment to larger bandana cookies.
