Engagement cookies (Tutorial)
I am very happy because a beloved friend of mine asked me to make some cookies in order to treat her engagement guests. Here in Greece, cookie treats aren’t so ordinary and I was determined to make her excited.
To make these cookies you will need:
- Frame cookies (cookie cutter from Karen’s cookies)
- White outline and flood icing
- Pink stiff icing for the ribbon roses
- Pink 20 second icing for writting letters and numbers
- Green stiff icing for the leaves
- #1 PME tip
- # 2 PME tip
- #3 Witlon tip
- #101s Wilton tip for making the roses
- #349 Wilton leaf tip for the little leaves.
- Icing bags
- Wilton icing bag ties
- Ateco couplers
Make the ribbon roses one day ahaed so that they have enough time to dry. For a video tutorial on how to make ribbon roses you can visit the baking sheet blog
The next day begin by outlining the cookies with a #2 tip then flood with a #3 tip and let dry preferably overnight.
When your cookies are completely dry you can add the ribbon roses, 3 on each edge, diagonally on the cookie using as glue the white outlining icing. Then using the stiff green icing and the #349 leaf tip you can add the leaves and let them dry. After that you can add the letters and numbers using the pink icing and a #1 PME tip. I used the kopykake projector in order to achive a nice result but you can try freehand as well. For a full tutorial on how to use the kopykake projector you can visit this Sweetopia’s post
For a finishing touch you can either airbrush your cookies with an edible pearl sheen airbrush color or spray them using an edible pearl spray in a can.
If you intent to use them as engagement or wedding or even christening treats you can put them in individual cello bags and add some beautiful ribbons!
Congratulations Vassilis and Mikaela!
