Patriotic Flag Cookie Platter and Printable Kopykake Template

Whoever said summer was about long lazy days fibbed or didn’t have kids.  Now that school is out it seems like I run all day.  Fourth of July cookies are one of my all-time favorites to make but it seems like every year I run out of time.  It’s times like this when I revert to simple and sweet.

Stars and Stripes CookiesThese cookies can be made with or without a Kopykake.  Either draw lines on the cookie before decorating with a food safe marker or print out the nifty little template below and use a projector.

This template also works well for candy stripes, just place the cookie at an angle.

Candy Stripe CookiesI have a random collection of old stencils that I used for the stars but if you don’t have any star stencils hanging around, I recommend this one from Salsa Sweets.  For help with stenciling click HERE.

Star Cookie StencilsThese cookies look great all jumbled together but I like them arranged to look like a real flag.

    Did you use 20-second Iicing for the stripes?
    Btw, I recently fell in love with your blog. I’m very, very new to cookie decorating (as in I’ve only done it 1 time) and your blog is so full of helpful nformation. I’m sure my next try will be so much better!

    I’m also loving this blog! I feel like so many cookie decorators are trying to make a business out if it so it’s all very hush hush so I’m very grateful that you share so much great information! I’m just trying to figure out what you pipe when you plan to do multiple colors? Do you only pipe once and in one color and just flood in the different colors?
