You’re going to go BANANAS for our newest cookie decorating kit! It’s so PEACHY Keen! Learn how to make these 6 Tutti Frutti cookies: Pineapple, Peach, Pear, Orange, Banana, and Watermelon. This is such a fun video because I explore several EASY ways to add texture to your cookies!
Add little faces and this Tutti Frutti set becomes so cutie!
For a single batch of dough, you can make about 24 of these cookies (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
Not going to lie, this set requires A LOT of colors. 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 Tutti Frutti cookie set has 10 icing colors.
ICING PLAN BY THE OUNCE
Because there are so many colors to this set, you might want to make a double batch of icing to allow a little wiggle room in how much you make of each color.
Black Diamond - 1 oz (pipe and flood)
Bright White - 1 oz (flood only)
Rose Pink - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Georgia Peach - 3 oz (pipe and flood)

Golden Yellow - 4 oz (pipe and flood)

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. Allow a little extra time since there are so many colors. (1-1.5 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 (1.5-2 hours)
**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**
