Hi everyone! I’m Aida from The Crafting Foodie, and I’m so excited to share some Ice Cream Decorated Sugar Cookies with all of you. This whimsical set of Ice Cream Decorated Cookies starts with a soft, delicious sugar cookie base, and they’re decorated with colorful royal icing. These cookies have all the fun of ice cream without any of the melted mess!
I made these sugar cookies for my friend’s daughter’s birthday. Since we missed her birthday celebration, I sent her a cute dress along with some delicious cookies.
Since it’s summer, ice cream themed cookies seemed like the way to go. I included some double scoop ice cream cones and popsicles. And just to let the birthday girl know that this set of cookies was just for her, I included some monogrammed cookies.
To make the ice cream cones, I used an ice cream cone cookie cutter. You can find one almost anywhere that sells cookie cutters – your local craft store or even a kitchen supply store like Sur La Table.
I tinted the royal icing tan for the cone, chocolate brown for the chocolate sauce, red for the cherry, and green and pink for the ice cream. My first step was to outline the cone with tan royal icing and each of the ice cream scoops with either green or pink. Then, I went back to fill the cone, and while the tan royal icing was still wet, I piped the lines on the cone using the chocolate brown. As the cone dried, I filled in the ice cream scoops with icing.
I set the cookies aside to dry for about half an hour. Then I went back to pipe and fill the chocolate sauce with chocolate brown royal icing. While the royal icing was wet, I sprinkled it with rainbow jimmies. To finish off the cookie, I piped and filled the cherry, and while it was still wet, I went back to draw a little line at the edge of the cherry to give it a little dimension.
I loved these Ice Cream Decorated Cookies so much that I’m thinking of making another set of ice cream themed cookies. This time I’m thinking of including an ice cream truck!
Linking to these wonderful parties!
