Decorated Flower Cookies

Whether you’re a beginner or experienced cookie decorator, flower cookies are one that everyone should have in their repertoire.  They are perfect in a group but also work well as a stand-alone design.  Flower cookies are a great way to add color and interest to any theme without investing a lot time and effort.

Perfect Flower Centers with IcingDecorating was as easy as outlining, filling, then dropping on a center.  The key is to work quickly.  If you need to make any adjustments, use a small pointed tool such as a turkey lacer or boo-boo stick to gently reposition the center.

Decorated Daisy CookiesIf you don’t have pre-made centers on hand, you can always pipe them directly onto the cookie.  Create a circle with 20-second icing, then use the tip to gently remove any air bubbles.

Daisy CookiesWhen the cookies are dry, you can dress them up any way you like.  I went with a whimsical black outline piped with a #1.5 tip.

    Love these cookies! They really visually made an impact with me. Could you please let me know who made your cookie cutter? Also, would you please share what colors you used in your icing for the yellow, blue and green? Thanks.
