Is Autumn your favorite season? It's definitely mine! I love all things fall: the colors, the pumpkins, and most definitely a trip to the farm!
Last weekend we went to our favorite farm - Way Fruit Farm - and picked up apples and pumpkins. We went on the hayride and enjoyed some apple cider donuts. It was a picture perfect fall day in Central PA.
This tutorial includes a step-by-step look at SEVEN Autumn/Farm cookies and will show how to 'antique' or shade cookies using a brown petal dust!
For a single batch of dough, you can make about 20-24 of these cookies (about 4 of each). 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.
Prepping the Royal Icing
This is the beautiful color wheel from this set. Please note, the black piping bag is missing from the photo.
The easiest way to create a muted fall palette is to add a few drops of ivory gel to icing colors. Avoid adding color directly to the bowl of icing. Place a drop on your spatula and mix into icing. Here I have 3 dots of Sunset Orange and 3 dots of Ivory.
Check out the icing guide below for tips on making the right colors and an estimate of how much of each color you'll need.
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).
The Autumn on the Farm cookie set has 7 gels/7 icing colors (ivory is added to the turquoise, orange, and pastel brown) used in both light and dark).
ICING PLAN BY THE OUNCE
Here is what I suggest making for a single batch.
Black Diamond - 1 oz (pipe only)
Turquoise + Ivory - 5 oz (pipe and flood)
Sunset Orange + Ivory - 4 oz (pipe and flood)
Tulip Red - 4 oz (pipe and flood)
Buckeye Brown - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Light Buckeye Brown + Ivory - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Bright White - 4 oz (pipe only)
These amounts are ESTIMATES. When it comes to how much icing to make, l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
For a royal icing recipe and video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer.
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.
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)
Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies). Piping details and stenciling (2 hours). Don't forget to allow the Light Brown pumpkin to dry for 4-6 hours before stenciling!
**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**
