Photos by super9Films Almost everything on these cookies was done in royal icing, with the exception of the gold button on the quilted cookie, which was made by pressing fondant into a mold, similar to the way I created this fondant cameo. There’s a new video tutorial in my shop on how to create the tufted effect. Learn how to enhance the look by using pearl dust in this tutorial.
Learn how I made this rose cookie using the wet-on-wet technique in this tutorial.
See a tutorial of this ruffle cookie here.
This cookie was made with a combination of brush embroidery, a bead border, ribbon roses, and painting with pearl dust.
These rose cookies were made using a Wilton petal tip 59°, which is a very small curved petal tip. There is a video on how to make royal icing roses and leaves in my Tutorial Shop. The video shows how to use a petal tip 104, but it is the same technique with any size petal tip.
This first rose cookie is covered in layers of brush embroidered icing. A video that shows brush embroidery in action is available in my Tutorial Shop.
This lacy cookie was piped freehand. I started out with a fishnet pattern then piped some filigree over it. I piped a few pearls and painted them with white pearl dust. The ribbon and bow were done with an Ateco tip 45, which has a flat narrow opening, about 1/16″ wide and 1/2″ long. I painted the ribbon and bow with pearl dust, also.
This blue cookie was based on a design inspired by fabric for Claire Pettibone’s runway show in October.
