SQUISHING you a Happy Valentine's Day! Our NEW kit includes the 5 cutters and some CUTE packaging supplies to make fun Valentine treats!

It's so hard to pick a favorite, but this Squishie Bear might be mine. I think it is the headband. 

This tutorial includes a step-by-step look at all FIVE Valentine's Day cookies. Plus, CLICK HERE to DOWNLOAD the 5 FREE TEMPLATES. 

Cookie Yield

For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-20 of the 5 regular sized cookies (about 4-5 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

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).


ICING PLAN (amounts will vary depending on the number of cookies you are making) 

Here is what I suggest for each cookie design

Squishie Bear - Bakers Rose in 2 shades, Buckeye Brown in 2 shades, Black
Squishie Bee - Bakers Rose (light), Lemon Yellow, White, and Black
Squishie Frog -
