Baby flower cookies (Tutorial)
Which cookies are on your mind when thinking of spring? My favorite are baby flower cookies like these!
When I first saw cookies like these I was excited! The original idea
belongs to Callye aka SweetSugarBelle, whose creations I adore and I could say that she is my cookie mentor because I have learnt a ton reading her tutorials. I love every single idea of her’s. I found this stunning version of these cookies, in cookiearitsan’s photostream
which I very often visit. She makes tremenous cookies!
When a friend of mine asked me to make some cookies for a baby shower I decided to make my version, based on the original idea but a little bit different. Here are the results!
To make these cookies you will need:
- flower shaped cookies (I used the 3 3/8-inch cutter from this set)
- round cookie cutter (I used the 1 1/2″ form this set)
- pale pink outline and flood RI
- skin tone 20 second RI
- deep pink stiff RI
- white outline RI
- black food marker (I used the one from this set)
- piping bags
- ateco couplers
- #2 tip
- #1,5 tip
- #3 tip
- #101s tip
- bag ties
- small artist brush
- pink edible petal dust
After baking your flower cookies let them sit for at least 24-48 hours to prevent oil from the cookie leaching into the RI which could cause icing spots.
Using the 1 1/2” round cutter and the toothpick mark the circle for the face.
Outline the cookie and the circle in the centre using the #2 tip and the pale pink outline RI.
Then fιll the outlined area with the pale pink RI using the # 3 tip leaving the opening for the face and let dry for a couple of hours.
Fill the face using the skin tone RI and let dry overnight.
Outline the face with white outline RI and a #1,5 tip and let dry.
Then add the frills around the face using the stiff icing and a #101s tip. For me holding and rotating the cookie worked best for this task. Add the bow using the same RI and #101s tip.
Then add the face details, nose and lips using the #1,5 tip and a toothick or a boo boo stick to sharpen the lips. It’s important to run the toothpick through nose and lips while the RI is still wet to prevent cratering. Let dry.
Use a small artist brush and pink edible petal dust to paint the cheeks on the face.
Draw the eyes with an edible black food marker…
…and your baby flower is ready!
Keep in mind that I presented the way that works for me best, hope you ‘ll find your way too!
