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.

Rainbow Brush Embroidery Cookies

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

I love brush embroidery because it’s relatively simple to do, but the result is always impressive. And the colors can be customized for any occasion!

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!

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

Cookie Planets!

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my affiliate disclosure here.

In a recent Instagram Story, I mentioned how much I dislike mixing icing colors. One of the reasons I started painting on royal icing is partially because of the versatility of the medium, but also because I’m pretty lazy when it comes to prepping for a project 😉

And, in a very unscientific study (involving asking my family members to stick their tongues out after eating these cookie planets), I found out that painted icing is less likely to stain your mouth than if the color is mixed into the icing.

This set was iced in white and painted with less than one drop of each color, which is probably why the cookies don’t leave a stain behind. If I had mixed the color into the icing, it would have taken much more food coloring to get the same effect. So, next time you have to make a dark color, try this method!

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

Instructions:

1) Begin by icing a hexagon cookie with white flood consistency royal icing and a decorating tip number 3.

2) Use a scribe tool to evenly distribute the icing.

3) Allow the icing to dry completely.

4) Make a guide by tracing a round cookie cutter with the scribe tool.

5) Paint the outside of the circle with dark blue food coloring mixed with grain alcohol, vodka, or any flavor extract such as vanilla, lemon, or almond.

6) The paint should be darkest around the edges and fade toward the middle. Use any colors you like to create your own planet!

7) Pipe tiny stars around the planet with white flood consistency royal icing and a decorating tip number 1.

8) Paint a ring with gold luster dust mixed with grain alcohol, vodka, or any flavor extract such as vanilla, lemon, or almond.

9) Repeat the process using a small star cookie cutter as a guide.
