Video Tutorial on How to Decorate Hedgehog Cookies (or Porcupine Cookies)

Rarely do I make the same cookie design twice. Making cookies mainly for family and friends and allows me this freedom, but once in a while I come upon a set that I can’t resist decorating again. Such was the case with these hedgehog (or porcupine, really) cookies. I made them a few years ago and then last week for Margaret of Blue Sugar Cookie Co. for a great cause. (Thank you Margaret!).

There’s something simply adorable about these guys, and let me tell you, the chocolate sprinkles I used on them taste so delicious! They’re the new gourmet dark chocolate confetti sprinkles by Ticings. They’re made with plant-based colors and are available for pre-order here.

The sprinkles are smaller and finer than the average chocolate sprinkle – can you see the difference between the sprinkles in the photo above and then the photo below of cookies I made a few years ago with chocolate sprinkles from Bulk Barn?

Next time I’ll be making them paired with these chocolate sugar cookies.

I found the hedgehog cookie cutter in an Ikea set, here. The large mushroom cutter is from Ecrandal, and I custom designed the mini mushroom cutter, which can be found in How Sweet is That?’s shop here.

Royal Icing

You can find my favorite royal icing recipe here. The consistency of icing is key for easy decorating. Click here to see a YouTube video on finding the right icing thickness.

    Hi! I was just wondering if the meringue powder was necessary in the royal icing recipe! If it makes it work better I’ll go out and grab some. Thank you!
