How to Decorate Baking Cookies

Posted by Anne Yorks on Monday, November 22, 2021

I love cookie cutters...especially BAKING themed cookie cutters. I had so much fun designing these shapes and decorating these cookies!! (by the way, if you love this post, I share some bonus baking themed cookie sets below!)

*If you're a member of the Flour Box Club, you'll find these cutters and Live, Love, Bake stencil in your Winter club box!!

Check out the step-by-step video tutorial!

Layering two stencil techniques is a fun way to decorate cookies! Check out the video tutorial for tips on how to do this!

The THREE cookie cutters are exclusive Flour Box designs: Hand Mixer, Stacked Bowls, and Spatula with Icing. They can only be found here - CLICK HERE!

Cookie Yield

For a single batch of dough, you can make about 20-24 of these cookies. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield. Before I bake my cookies, I like to sketch them out and come up with a decorating and icing color plan!

COOKIE RECIPE: For a cookie recipe and rolling and baking video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer. 

Prepping the Royal Icing

ICING PREP 

For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).

This cookie set has 6 icing colors using 4 gels. I made a dark and light version of both the Turquoise and Rose Pink.

l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.

ICING PLAN BY THE OUNCE (THIS IS BASED ON MAKING 5 OF EACH OF THESE 4 COOKIE DESIGNS - 20ISH COOKIES)

White - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Gray - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Dark Turquoise - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Light Turquoise - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Dark Rose Pink - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Light Rose Pink - 3 oz (pipe and flood)

ROYAL ICING RECIPE

A few Extra Decorating Tips

Project Timeline

Plan ahead to enjoy the most success with your cookie project! I break up the decorating process. It works better with my life to do a little each day. Here is the schedule for this cookie project and estimated times on how long each phase takes.

DAY 1 

Mix Dough (30 mins), Chill Dough (2 hours inactive time), Roll and Bake (1 hour), Mix Royal Icing and Prep Icing Colors - it is helpful to make the colors the day before you decorate because the color will deepen overnight (1 hour). 

DAY 2 

Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies or 5-6 hours for stenciled cookies). Piping details and stenciling (1.5-2 hours) 

**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**

DAY 3

For tips on packing cookies, CLICK HERE to check out this helpful blog post with links to my favorite packing and shipping materials. 

 Recreate these!

I would be so flattered if you recreated these cookies!

Be sure to tag @theflourboxshop or use hashtag #theflourbox so I can see what you create!

Common Tools in this Tutorial: 

Coming Soon! My next tutorial is going to show how to make these cute cookie sheet cookies...

Pin this post and save for later! 

More Inspiration!

A dress cutter doubles as an apron!

I used a girl cutter to make these baking friends!

This is just a fun assortment of baking themed cookies!

How about a throwback to Christmas 2012 with this sweet holiday set!

Or this baking set I created to say 'Thank you'!

I love this cookie sheet...I've made this many times over the years and will be sharing an updated tutorial soon!

I hope you enjoy your National Cookie Day!!!  

Happy Decorating!

    I’m just too happy that everything is in place for me now. I would gladly recommend the use of spell to any one going through marriage problems and want to put an end to it by emailing Dr Emu through emutemple@gmail.com and that was where I got the help to restore my marriage.

    Am here to testify what this great spell caster done for me. i never believe in spell casting, until when i was was tempted to try it. i and my wife have been having a lot of problem living together, she will always not make me happy because she have fallen in love with another man outside our relationship, i tried my best to make sure that my wife leave this woman but the more i talk to her the more she makes me fell sad, so my marriage is now leading to divorce because she no longer gives me attention. so with all this pain and agony, i decided to contact this spell caster to see if things can work out between me and my wife again. this spell caster who was a man told me that my wife is really under a great spell that she have been charm by some magic, so he told me that he was going to make all things normal back. he did the spell on my wife and after 5 days my wife changed completely she even apologize with the way she treated me that she was not her self, i really thank this man his name is Dr ose he have bring back my wife back to me i want you all to contact him who are having any problem related to marriage issue and relationship problem he will solve it for you. his email is oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com he is a man and his great. wish you good time.
