How to Decorate a Mason Jar Cookie

Posted by Anne Yorks on Friday, February 5, 2016

The mason jar is one of the most popular cookie cutters we carry in our online shop. Not only is a great design for weddings and bridal showers, it's also a perfect design for Valentine's Day. Check out these charming pink and gold mason jars!

See the video on how to decorate this cookie. This is an EXTENDED video and shows how to use one bowl and one spatula to mix the five shades of pink icing. The icing is already at the flood consistency when I start mixing the colors. 

The video also shows all three jar designs, too!

Once I had the consistency at the flood stage, it really took me about 10 minutes in real time to make the colors. I decorated 24 cookies with the below icing. 


I have used the  Mason Jar cutter several times - mostly for bridal showers and weddings. I have posted a photo of a more traditional take on the mason jar cutter at the end of this post. 

 We do carry this one in our shop!

To add the gold shimmer, I used Crystal Colors Antique Gold. I like the color of this one. (and it's FDA approved too!) We carry this antique gold and several other pearl dusts here, click here to check it out.

It adds such a pretty shimmer to the gold icing!


I used the Americolor soft pink to make the shades of pink.


I only mixed 5 shades, but I think it is fun to see how many colors can come out of one bottle.


So pretty to see them all lined up! (do like you this scalloped heart? It's part of the Wilton 4 pc heart set - only $4.79 for four cutters. I love this set!).

And, finally as promised, here is a photo of a previous mason jar project - 


I hope you enjoyed this peak at the mason jar! Happy Decorating!
