Make a splash at a beach or pool themed birthday, bridal, or bachelorette party with these fabulous bathing suit cookies! 

This is such a great cutter - the Swimming Suit!

Check the video for a step-by-step look at how to make these cookies! Also, see below for BONUS swimsuit inspiration below!

This design was my favorite of the three. I loved the (easy) wet-on-wet flowers and leaves. The stripes on this suit are such a pretty color - pastel Navy Blue for the win!

Cookie Yield

These are medium sized cookies (about 3.5"). For a single batch of dough, you can make about 22-24 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.

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).

 

These ice cream cookies have 6 icing colors, using 4 gels. I use the Forest and Burgundy in both a light and dark shade. l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.

If you're making a full batch of these cookies, here is a breakdown of the icing by ounce:

5 oz Dark Burgundy (1 oz pipe and 4 oz flood)
3 oz Light Burgundy (1 oz pipe and 2 oz flood)
4 oz Dark Forest Green (1 oz pipe and 3 oz flood)
1 oz Light Forest Green (1 flood only)
1 oz Pastel Navy Blue (1 oz pipe only)
5 oz Bright White (1 oz pipe and 4 oz flood)
