A few months ago, I made set of baby gender reveal cookies for a friend of mine (you can see those here). This time, I’m the one who’s expecting, so I made a set for myself! I was so excited to share these cookies with our friends and family (and now you!) to reveal if we’ll be having a baby boy or girl in November.  Gender-Reveal-Cookies1

I used the Oreo mold from The Cookie Countess to make these cookies. Here’s the full list of what you’ll need for this project:

Gender-Reveal-Cookies3

Filling:
1/2 cup (113 grams) butter, softened
2 cups (225 grams) confectioners’ sugar
2 Tbs (30 mL) milk
Pinch of salt
1 tsp (5mL) vanilla

Combine butter and confectioners’ sugar. Add milk and salt and mix until smooth. Add vanilla and continue to mix until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes)
Color with Candy Colors.

Chocolate Roll-Out Cookies:
4 cups (575 grams) all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 cup (85 grams) cocoa powder
1 teaspoon (4 grams) salt
1 cup (226 grams) butter, softened
2 cups (450 grams) sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon (5 mL) vanilla extract
½ cup (122 grams) milk

Combine butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt
Add cocoa powder and milk.
Stir in flour.
Split into two pieces. Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll dough to 3/16″ (5mm) and cut cookies using a round cookie cutter.
Bake cookies at 350ºF (175°C) for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely before decorating.

A few days ago, I posted a photo on Instagram of a bunch of cookie cutters I recently got from Ann Clark Cookie Cutters. Here’s a quick video of what I did with the unicorn shape!

Here’s what you’ll need to decorate unicorn cookies:

Meringue Cookies with Sugar Stamps!

Have you heard of Sugar Stamps? Dotty of Sugar Dot Cookies sent me a few designs to try out and I am in love! I’ve been on a meringue kick lately and these have really upped my game. Sugar-Stamps1

When I first opened the Sugar Stamps package, I didn’t read the instructions and I tried to peel the designs from the backing thinking it was like a Wilton Sugar Sheet. Don’t be like me! Read the instructions first.

Once you prepare your meringue (recipe below) you pipe directly onto the Sugar Stamps. Look how cute these patterns are! Sugar-Stamps5

As the meringues bake, the design will adhere to the bottom. They pop right off of the Sugar Stamp when they’re done baking (make sure to remove them from the sheet as soon as they come out of the oven).Sugar-Stamps2

Supply list:

Meringue Recipe (watch the video here)

  • 1/2 cup (60 grams) Egg white
  • 1/2 cup (99 grams) sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (5 mL) vanilla extract

Combine egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar and mix on high speed until frothy. Add vanilla and mix on high speed until the meringue holds a peak (this can take up to 15 minutes).

 —

Split the meringue into two bowls. Color one half teal (blue + yellow) and the other half pink. Fit decorating bags with a tip 822 and a tip 804. Fill the bags with the meringue.

 —

Place the Sugar Stamps on a baking tray (shiny side down) and pipe the meringue over the designs. Bake at 200°F (93°C) for 3 hours or until meringues are dry and sound hollow when tapped.

 —

Immediately remove the meringues from the Sugar Stamps and allow to cool completely.

If you try these out, share your creations with me on Instagram by tagging your photos with #sweetambscookies!
