These are by far one of my favorite cookies that I’ve made with sugar cookie dough and royal icing! I’m not that talented when it comes to royal icing and cookies, but I think that I can normally pull off the simple designs. (Have you seen the royal icing sugar cookies from +Bridget Edwards? (Bake at 350) I really hope to be able to decorate cookies like her one day!)
But back to these, they’re pretty easy. No real detailed decorating talent needed to make these beauties. 🙂 I made oh about 50 of these for Emma’s birthday party a few weeks ago haha. Her mother and I gave her a “Cookies & Milk” themed 1st birthday party and these cookies were part of the wonderful cookie spread that we set out for the party guests.
You maybe have seen the photos on Instagram of the cookie making process haha and of the party. It was totally one of the cutest parties ever.
Back to decorating cookies, I can NEVER get my outlines to match up with my cookies! haha I suppose it’s my lack of patience, I don’t know. Do you decorate Sugar Cookies? How do you make the lines perfect? See how my white is “kinda” in a circle but not really? haha oops
For these pink roses, I used a few drops of red food coloring from McCormick and a few drops of Raspberry flavoring for just a touch a flavor. McCormick send all of the bloggers that went to Mixed a goodie box filled with flavorings and food color as a “Thank you” for attending kind of thing and I’ve been digging through it for every project I’ve done this month haha.
