Princess Face Cookies

Do you have a sweet little princess in your life?  If so, I highly recommend adding these to your baking list. As long as there are little girls in the world, princess cookies will always be a hit.

Princess Face Cookie Close UpThe great thing about princess face cookies is that there are many cutters that will work perfectly.  Here are some of my favorites.  1.) flip flop, 2.) large ring, 3.) ornament, 4.) skull, 5.) fancy ornament, 6.) snowman, 7.) bell 8.) small ring, 9.) egg  {I’ve even done it with a tulip}

Princess Cookie Cutter 1To make these cookies you will need:

  • Fleshtone 20-second icing
  • Piping and 20-second icing in the color of your choice for hair
  • A small amount of black, pink, yellow, purple and white piping icing for details


  • Pink petal dust
  • Black gel color

Begin by using flesh colored 20-second icing to create a face, leaving room for hair.

Princess Face Cookie 1Let the face dry for a bit, then add bangs.  Give each application a bit to dry add the hair in sections for a dimensional look, or save time by adding it all at once.  I went with a side-swept part.  Remember, you can personalize these cookies by changing the haircolor and style.

Princess Face Cookie StepsLet the base dry, and finish up with a few details.

  1. Use yellow icing and a #1.5 tip to pipe a crown
  2. Add simple purple jewels {if you like}
  3. Outline the hair
  4. Add eyes
  5. Add lips

Princess Face Cookie 5If you really want to go all out, use petal dust to blush her cheeks and a teeny tiny little brush for lashes.  I must’ve been in a really good mood, because my princess even ended up with a necklace!
