It’s time for another “Cookie Quickie,” the same tutorials you’re used to, without all the photos.
Like many of my cookies, this sweet hula dancer began life as a snowman cutter, which is included in this set.
To make hula girl cookies, simply follow the steps below:
- Use 20-second icing in the color of your choice fill the top portion of the hula girl’s hair.
- Wait a few minutes and use flesh tone 20-second icing to create a torso and legs.
- Wait a few more minutes and add a skirt, also using 20-second icing. If bleeding is a problem, wait longer before adding each layer of icing.
- When the base is dry it’s time to add the details. Begin by using a small dot of dark brown 20-second icing to make a coconut bikini. Remember to leave a few minutes between each drop. This will add definition.
- Next use a #1.5 tip to pipe lines for the hair, braid, eyes, mouth, and grass skirt. Use dark brown icing to add a bikini string, if necessary.
- Finish up with royal icing flowers like the one pictured below. I turned an apple blossom into a hibiscus by slightly altering the middle. To learn more, check out this tutorial. If royal icing flowers aren’t your thing, this works too.

- Simple Hula Skirt Cookies
- Ballerina Cookies and Nerdy Graduate Cookies (Both designs are very similar to the cookie above, and the tutorials include step-by-step photos for those of you who would like a visual example.)
