{Video} How to Make Daisy Cookies (with a little help from a KopyKake projector)

Posted on April 18th, 2011 in Decorated Cookies, Tutorials, Videos

Can you tell how these cookies took half the time to dry than usual?

If you haven’t figured it out, maybe a hint… It has something to do with the fact that the daisy petals are able to ‘hang over’ the edges of the base.

The daisies are royal icing transfers. :-)   (I’ll show you how I made them in the video below).

Instead of having to pipe the design on my base and then wait to let that dry, I was able to pipe both the teal base and the daisies, let them dry, and in 24 hours, adhered the daisy to the cookie.  Voila!  (The things that make me happy. Lol).

If you’d like to see how these were made, including a few tips about decorating with the Kopykake projector , click on the video below.

And a quick pictorial overview:

A note in here for those of you who read my photography tips post; I orgininally made the collage below first and then decided to put all the steps in one, so made the collage above… and forgot to fix the lighting… can you see the difference?

Anyways, a few other things to mention:

  • These cookies might work well as ‘name-tag’ favours if you added the names to the open space.
  • Thanks to Kim of The TomKat Studio and HGTV for including these cookies in their Yellow & Blue Easter Brunch!
  • I’m working on a thorough Kopykake Projector Tutorial Video.  Coming… soon?  For now, for those of you interested, here’s a post on it (click here).
  • The KopyKake projector isn’t needed to make these cookies; you could just trace the daisy instead of projecting the image.  I like the projector because 1) it’s faster for me to just pop the image in and project and  2) more importantly, if I’m making a more detailed image like the owl cookies in this post here, I’m able to see the second layer (owl’s eyes and belly), whereas if I were tracing I’d only be able to trace the first layer (brown body).

What would you like to see in the next video?  Drop me a line in the comment section below, on YouTube, or my facebook page here.

And in case I’m not able to post again before then; Happy Easter to you!

I hope the Easter Bunny brings you sweets. ;-)

xo,

Marian
