When I’m in the scrapbooking aisle at Michael’s, I’m not looking for a photo album I’m creating, I’m looking for cookie designs.
And in the case of these cookies, this scrapbooking paper was exactly what I was looking for; cute, wintery and easy to make using my KopyKake projector. (Here’s a link to my KopyKake Projectory Tutorial).
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I am not skilled at drawing. That’s why having the projector to help me trace the designs, makes a world of difference for me.
You need to learn how to pipe of course, and practice helps too. (For piping tips see Piping Techniques in my Cookie Decorating Tutorial).
I’ll be doing a post on more piping tips soon. (Maybe even a video).
The cookie below turned into a notepad, using these edible ink markers.
Don’t think you’d like to see the message I wrote to my husband. 😉
Have fun baking!
Could you tell me please how you achieve the ‘blushed cheek’ affect? I’m planning to make some cookies for my brother & sister-in-law, they’re having their first child and I would like to decorate a baby’s face.

Hi @ Nathalie: It’s so easy! You’ll need a paintbrush used only for that purpose (a fluffier one, if that makes sense), and pink luster dust. Dip your paintbrush in, brush off the excess and dust the pink luster on the DRY royal icing.
Have fun! xo
I absolutely ADORE your cookies! I decorated cookies the other day using your royal icing recipe and they turned out well, thanks to your tips. I’m feeling inspired now! Can you please share the colors that you used for your wintery Christmas cookies (particularly the green, orange, purple and mauve)? They are the cutest cookies I’ve ever seen 🙂

Hi @ Sandra: Thanks so much! It’s been a while, so I’ll try my best to remember:
*Wilton cornflower blue
*Americolor electric green mixed with Wilton Juniper
*Americolor chocolate brown
Hi Marian – The notepad cookie is such a charming idea, especially for kids! Did you pipe or draw the horizontal lines? About how large is the cookie? Thank you!
I piped the horizontal lines. It’s been a few years since I made these cookies, but I know it was a larger cookie… About 5 by 8cm. Hope that helps!
