So Thankful for ... Cookies [how to decorate a silly turkey cookie]

Posted by Anne Yorks on Friday, November 6, 2015

Anyone else happy it is November? Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking forward to winter (*shutter*). But I do looove Thanksgiving. It's such a wonderful, family holiday full of delicious food and treats without the 'gift stress'. Am I right?

So, in anticipation of Turkey Day, I have already started getting my cookie mojo moving in that direction. This silly turkey makes me smile every time I make him!

And here's the YouTube video...

The thing I like the most about this design is that the outline is all brown. Outlining in one color is such a TIME SAVER!

You'll notice in the video, while the cookie was still warm, I pressed a small circle into the cookie. This helps guide the circle shape and sets off the rest of the design, making it easy to keep the turkey consistent from cookie to cookie.

We used our cupcake cutter for this design. 'Cause we be crazy like that.

It's available here.


Earlier in the week, we posted a 15 second Instagram video. Did you catch that? Do you follow us on Instagram?

 I love this video because it shows how quick and easy it is to stencil with royal icing!

The icing is a thick consistency so it holds it's shape. And, not shown in the video is an extra swipe of the scraper that removes some of the excess icing. Sorry for that - we only have 15 seconds to work with!

I used this stencil to achieve this design - it's available here!


This collection is so colorful!

There is more Thanksgiving fun to come!! I can't wait to show you what I've been working on!

Happy Decorating!
