Lemonade Cookie Tutorial Tutorial

Nothing beats the summer heat like a cool glass of lemonade...and a plate of cookies!

Watch and learn how to decorate the FOUR cutters: the Lemonade Cart, the Lemonade Glass, the Lemonade Pitcher, and the Hello Summer Lemon. Also in this video, I’ll share 3 tips to set yourself up for cookie success using a template, icing guide dots, and a food market sketch on the cookie. 


*If you're a member of the Flour Box Club, you'll find these cutters in your Summer club box!!

TWO of these cookie cutters are exclusive Flour Box cookie cutters, the lemonade cart and lemonade glass, and can only be found here - CLICK HERE!

Cookie Yield

For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-22 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!

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. 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)

Pastel Yellow - 7 oz (pipe and flood)
Dark Yellow - 2 oz (pipe and flood)
Pastel Pink - 4 oz (pipe and flood)
Sky blue - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
White - 2 oz (pipe and flood)

A few Extra Decorating Tips

 

In the video I gave THREE tips on setting yourself up for decorating success, including tracing a template with a food marker.

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

    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.
