Decorated Princess Cookies

You know how it is with princesses, they think they rule the world {or at least that’s my daughter theory}.

Leave it to a princess to show up right in the middle of a fall cookie blitz.  Hopefully, these princess cookies are cute enough to pardon the interruption.

Princess Cookie CloseI pieced my princess cookies from a gingerbread girl and a small round gumpaste cutter.

Princess Cookie CutterUsing I knife I slightly trimmed the arms, and added an extra circle of dough for a bun.  If you want to skip the piecing the design will work fine without the round, I just wanted a little extra room to work.

To make these cookies you will need:

  • Fleshtone 20-second icing {for different shades click the highlighted link}
  • Deep pink piping and 20-second icing
  • Light pink piping and 20-second icing
  • Brown piping and 20-second icing
  • A tiny bit of black, yellow, white, and purple 20-second icing

Begin by flooding the face and neck area along with the top layer of the skirt {and if there’s a word for that specific part of the dress, please let me know}.

Princess Cookie 5Clean up the design with piped details.  I added a jeweled crown, a swoop of hair, eyes, a mouth, pearls, and a few dress details.

    (I think the top part of the skirt is called a peplum?)

    I am a lurker on your website. A 6 week lurker. I am opening a party store in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and will be selling “EVERYTHING TO MAKE A PERFECT PARTY!” Which for me includes, decorated cookies. I just wanted to let you know how incredible you are. I love your website. I love your cookies. I love your detail and care. And…I love your incredible willingness to share everything. Daily I am in awe and to be very honest, am usually left with my mouth open and my jaw in a dropped position because I truly don’t understand how you can make things so beautiful. You are amazing!!! I hope to be reading your posts for years to come as I embark on my own cookie adventure. Thank you for being you. Robin
