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!
