Cookie Making Schedule {Free Printables} & Ballet Tutu Cookies

Share it!   

 

I wish I could say I was wearing this for Halloween.

If you can’t see the video click here please.

It’s amazing what you’ll do for children. {I may actually have had a little bit of fun wearing this… ahem… just a little ;-)).


Please be gentle with me in the comment section. ūüėČ

My step-daughter and I really did have so much fun wearing our tutus, and I’m thankful to Marie of¬†Bakerosity, for the gift of our beautiful custom-made tutus (She made them in the Sweetopia colours – how sweet of her!).

Of course I had to make some tutu ballet cookies.

Fitting my hobby (obsession?) of decorating cookies or other sweets in amongst life can be a challenge.  I get asked on a regular basis how I manage to fit them in while working full-time, making time for family and other commitments.

In order to balance it all, I’ve had to figure out a stress-free way of getting them done – after all, I still want to enjoy the experience! I’ve shared two cookie decorating schedules I use here, and free printables to go along with them for you. Thanks to my web designer Arthur for making them!

Now I just have to figure out how to get more blog posts up besides just making the cookies.

Here’s my plan for making cookies and decorating them:

I prefer making my cookies according to the schedule above, however sometimes I do need to make them in a shorter period of time.

3 Day Cookie Decorating Schedule

{Click here for a printable version}

These tutu cookies are fairly simple designs, so I didn’t need much time to decorate them. You could definitely finish these on a 3-day schedule.

I hope you have as much fun as I did making them too. Oh, and the bow on the cookie b.t.w., is a pre-made fabric bow from Michael’s Craft store. I got the idea of using them from this sweet cookie book,¬†The Flour Pot Cookie Book. The ribbons are just barely iced so that they’re easy to remove.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to drop me a line in the comment section below, on Facebook or twitter.

Happy decorating!

xo,

Marian

    Hi Marian,

    Thank you so much for your wonderful blog!! I have a question. I know you’ve said how long cookies can keep for, but I’m wondering how long they are ok sitting out on the counter? I made my cookies Fri and put the 1st layer, and let them sit overnight. Then Saturday I put the 2nd layer and left them out all day. Saturday night I put them in a plastic container. But I still had more decorating to do. So I took them out today (Monday) and finished them, and am leaving them out overnight because I’m worried that the icing won’t dry all the way. But on the other hand, I’m worried they’ll get stale. What’s the longest I can leave them out? Would 3 days total be horrible? :-/

    Thank you!
    Heather

    Hi there! I’m not a cookie maker (unless for home eating!) and I was thinking of trying cookies rather than cupcakes for this Valentine’s. However, my cookies don’tlast for long, only for about 4-5 days. How does it works to make them to last longer in order to have such schedule + consumption period? Many thanks, Sandra.

    Boa tarde, em primeiro lugar parabéns pelo seu trabalho, me apaixono a cada dia mais.
    Tenho uma duvida, meu glace real quando seca na cobertura do cookies ele fica fosco, os seus parecem brilhantes.
    Como posso melhorar o visual dos meus cookies.

    Obrigada

    Hello! I love your website and your baking schedule is great!
    In your 3 day schedule, you bake your cookies Day 1 then decorate them Day 2. From day 1 till day 2, how do you store the cookies? Can they be left on a tray with no cover ? Or should they be placed in bags?

    Thank you :)!
