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

Share it!   

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

teal-daisy-decorated-cookies

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.

If you can’t see the video, CLICK HERE.

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

      Thanks Rola! I’m not very good at making them with icing. If I do make them I usually make them with gumpaste and I use Peggy Porschen’s way of doing them. Sorry I’m not more help with that!

      Yikes! Thanks for noticing that! They’re definitely not 3/4 of an inch if I had been using my noggin while I was typing- that’s SO thick. I think you can tell by the pictures that they’re about 1cm! Thanks!

    I just discovered your site from Foodbuzz Top 9 and am in love with all these creative and beautiful ideas! I especially love these daisy cookies. How pretty! You make it look so easy. I think I’ll make these for a Mother’s Day bake sale. I am bookmarking your site and will be following for more great ideas and inspiration!

    Really thank for your wonderful tutorials, your detailed instructions are absolutlely helpful! Could you please tell how can we have a shiny icing? I usually use this recipe: powdered sugar + lemon juice + egg white, is this the same I mean in result for decorating?
    Have a nice day!

      Hi Sunshine, Many of my shiny pics of cookies are when the icing is still wet, but you can add a little corn syrup to the royal icing to add a bit of shine, or try putting PME lustre spray (pearl) on.

    Hi Marian,
    Your work is beautiful and your tutorials are always so helpful and beautifully photographed. Thank you for your blog. I was wondering if you are on Etsy? There is someone using this exact picture of the Daisy cookies and if it’s you, then forget I asked. But if it’s not, just wanted to give you a head’s up. Here’s the link. http://www.etsy.com/shop/clmoore35
    I decorate cookies as well and would hate for someone to use my pics as if they were their own.
    Regards,
    Teresa

    HI ! These cookies are so beautiful. I love them! I have just started making Royal Icing decorated cookies – could I ask you a few questions??
    1. You mention to add corn syrup to the icing to make it shiny – I’ve been told to use glycerine to make them shiny and not set too hard so the icing doesn’t crack when bitten…have you heard that?
    2. Do you use the same consistency to pipe and flood? It seems like it…
    3. I add vanilla extract to my recipe because I like the taste better but I have been having some issues with the color getting blotchy after it has dried – have you ever had that problem? I wonder if it is related to the extract?
    Thanks in advance for any help – you are so talented!!

    thanks so much for the generous sharing! I’m giving these techniques a try, with limited success so far (practice, practice, practice!). Could I ask? what diameter are the sugar cookies in this tutorial? likewise the daisies? maybe I’m trying to work on too small a scale (as a beginner!).

    thanks.

      spookercat, I checked the cookie cutter I used – they are 9cm in diameter; and yes, it is easier to work on a larger cookie! I don’t have the daisy stuff anymore but I’m guessing if the cookie was 9cm, the daisy would have been about 4-5cm.
      Good luck! You will get better with practice and with tips and tricks!

    Hi there. Absolutely LOVE your blog. I am new to this (never iced a cookie!) and doing as much research before I dive in. Am well prepared with more than I need but can’t seem to find the answer for storing cookies before they are iced and during each icing stage. Once cookies are baked do you store in an airtight container? Once iced and have to wait a day to continue icing how do I store these? You are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing all you have. The daisy cookies are going to be my first attempt! Very excited 🙂

      Hi Desiree,
      I let them cool thoroughly first and then I usually leave mine on the baking sheet and cover the baking sheet with saran wrap or foil until I decorate them. You can actually buy covers for baking sheets, but I don’t own any.
      If I don’t have enough baking sheets I do put them in an airtight container between layers of parchment.

      You seem like you’re very prepared and organized! For your first time, don’t be too hard on yourself; the cookie decorating tutorial and the top 10 tips I have will help (especially like the tip about letting your icing just fall when you’re making outlines etc. – that one helped improve my piping a lot), but a little bit of practice goes a long way too, so the most important thing is to have fun!
      Would love if you come back and share your cookies here or on facebook.
      Have fun Desiree!

  18. September 25, 2011 at 9:12 am | Permalink

    Thanks Shannon! I do rest my arm on the table and make sure I let the icing fall onto the cookie. Besides that, maybe a little more practice will help! xo

    Hi Marion,

    JUst started to use my new kopykake, so I have a question, how do you keep your hand out of the light? I know it sound silly but everytime I went to outline my hand was in the light. Any tips would be helpful.
    Thanks!

    I am new to baking cookies, and love your site! What tip do you use to make the border on this daisy cookie? Do you just squeeze a little icing out and touch up any “point” left on the ball with a brush? They balls are so perfectly round! Thank you so much!

  23. January 24, 2012 at 1:33 pm | Permalink
    86

    Hi @ Kathy: Sometimes I do use a paintbrush, or even a toothpick, but if the icing is runny enough, then the icing falls back onto itself. You can see me making it in the video if you like. xo

    Hi Marian thank u for ur wonderful tutorial. Since I’ve seen ur video I’m eager to try this. I just want to ask u 1. We don’t have crisco in this country . Can I use butter to wipe my transparency film? 2. Is transparency film safe to use for decorating when ur talking about food & hygiene safety? Thanks I wish u all the luck …

    Hi @ Lucia: No sorry, I don’t, but you can find talented decorators in the Decorator Directory in the sidebar of the blog.

    Thanks @ Shirley from Funchkins!

    @ Jan: I haven’t tried butter, so I’m not really sure if it would work, sorry. Another thing you can use if you’re concerned about both issues you mentioned, is simple parchment paper.
