Food Emoji Cookies Part Two! Fruits and Vegetables

This post contains affiliate links. Read my affiliate disclosure here.

Well, this is one way to get my daughter to eat her vegetables! These fruit and vegetable emoji cookies are the second part of my food emoji cookie series (maybe I’ll gather up the energy to do another set, but don’t hold your breath… these took forever!).  

The corn and broccoli turned out to be my favorite in the set. Although I really love how the coconut turned out, too! I posted a few days ago on Instagram about Olive calling corn “kern” and how it’s the cutest thing ever. And she says it with such conviction, like “KERN!”. Scroll down for the video tutorial and printable instructions.

I had to speed up the video to fit everything in and it still ended up being 15 minutes long! I have no idea how long it actually took to make all of these cookies because I did this over the course of several days in between other projects.

 Printable supply list and instructions:

Fruit and Vegetable Emoji Cookies!


  • Roll-out cookie dough
  • Templates to cut cookies (google image search "food emoji cookies" and print them any size you like!)
  • Flood consistency royal icing
  • "Tipless" decorating bags
  • Scribe tool
  • Edible ink marker for kiwi seeds
  • Fine tip brush (find one in the art supply section of the craft store)
  • Decorator brushes
  • Paint palette
  • Blue, Yellow, Orange, & Red from the Wilton Color Right set
  • Crystal Colors Snowflake powdered food coloring for highlights
  • Grain alcohol, vodka, or extract for painting (Alcohol or flavored extracts are used for painting on royal icing because they evaporate very quickly, which means that the liquid won’t dissolve the icing as you are applying the paint. The stronger the alcohol, the better!)


  1. Begin by icing the cookie with flood consistency royal icing. 
  2. Use a scribe tool to help shape the icing.
  3. Allow the icing to dry completely. 
  4. Mix food coloring with grain alcohol, vodka, or any flavor extract such as vanilla, lemon, or almond. 
  5. Use the edible paint to add shading to the dry icing.       
  6. Use white powdered food coloring for highlights.
  7. Repeat the process on the rest of the cookies.


Find all of these supplies in my Amazon Store.

It feels like we’re on the tail-end of the galaxy trend, but don’t think I’ll ever get sick of these designs! I’ve been sitting on this project for months and I finally had time to edit the video. But it worked out because these galaxy skull cookies seem fitting this time of year with Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos right around the corner.

Monarch Butterfly Cookies! {Collab with Haniela’s}

I was inspired to make these monarch butterfly cookies when I came across Haniela’s mesmerizing monarch butterfly cake tutorial on Facebook.

I decided to pipe my monarch butterfly cookies by hand, but Hani’s use of a stencil to decorate her butterfly cake is a wonderful technique, especially if you don’t feel comfortable doing the design freehand.

Our friends recently celebrated their baby’s 1st birthday, so I thought I’d make some cookies to celebrate 🙂

I took these to the next level by using a rainbow palette made with concentrated colors from the Wilton Color Right set. Scroll down for the tutorial and supply list!
