I scream! You scream! We all scream for rainbow ICE CREAM!

I love love love this cookie cutter! 

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

I piped the sprinkles using a tip #1 to have precise placement and a perfect color match, but you can also use actual sprinkles to speed up this design!

Cookie Yield

These are medium sized cookies (about 3.5"). For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-20 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


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 8 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.

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

3 oz Rose Pink (1 oz pipe and 2 oz flood)
3 oz Lemon Yellow (1 oz pipe and 2 oz flood)
3 oz Mint Green (1 oz pipe and 2 oz flood)
3 oz Turquoise Green (1 oz pipe and 2 oz flood)
3 oz Purple (1 oz pipe and 2 oz flood)
1 oz Black Diamond (1/2 oz flood and 1/2 oz pipe)
5 oz Buckeye Brown (1 oz pipe and 5 oz flood)

2 oz Bright White (1 oz flood only)
