Chevron Cookies

After going through lots of ideas of what to do with the beautiful custom made cookie cutter that I received from a friend in Hong Kong, I decided to go with a simple chevron design. I created a little video to show I made these cookies using some piping gel and rainbow nonpareils.


I started out by icing the cookies with flood consistency royal icing. There is a video with full instructions on this method in my tutorial shop. Once the icing was dry, I applied piping gel over a chevron stencil. To make the stencil, I traced a chevron pattern onto a sheet of acetate paper using an edible ink marker. That way I didn’t have to worry about any permanent marker ink getting all over the cookies or the brush. Then, I cut the stencil using an exacto knife.
 Here’s the video tutorial:

You can find the scribe tool used in this video here in my shop. Other products used in this and other tutorials can be purchased here.


I also made a version using silver sparkling sugar.

  1. Amber, this just slipped by me I guess and its beautiful! I had chevron cookies to do for a friends baby shower and could not figure out how to do them & I had cutters (ordered from Netherlands) and 2 stencils and I finall just gave up & airbrushed! They were not as beautiful as yours are and I love you new cookie cutter. Keep sharing please for those of us not so “talented” as you! I love all your cookies! Oh, and I don’t know how I ever lived without the scribe tool!

    • Thank you, Linda! I like the way airbrushed chevron looks, too. Maybe you can try this technique next time! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the scribe tool!

  2. For years I’ve done Christmas cookies with my son (gingerbread men outlined with white piping then filled in with holiday non pareils). We use straight corn syrup applied with a paintbrush as “glue”. It dries overnight and cookies can be stacked with no problems. It’s a great technique because even a preschooler can make gorgeous cookies “all by himself” this way. It sounds like the piping icing stays a bit more gooey than corn syrup.

    • Hi Alisa, I’m glad to hear that the cookies are able to be stacked with the corn syrup “glue”. I haven’t tested mine for shipping yet, but this gives me hope! 🙂

    • Thank you, Renata! I haven’t tested any other types of “glue” for this technique, but you could try using thinned down icing instead. The only issue I’d see with that is that it will crust over before you have a chance to apply the sprinkles, so you’d have to work super fast.

    • Thank you! The piping gel will become dry to the touch, but it doesn’t get hard. It stays squishy like jelly. It holds those sprinkles on pretty well, though.

    • Thank you! 🙂 The piping gel will become dry to the touch, but it doesn’t get hard. It stays squishy like jelly. It holds those sprinkles on pretty well, though. It takes several hours for it to dry, so just make sure it’s completely dry before you stack the cookies.

  3. Oh so pretty!! You have a way of making everything so gorgeous and special. Even a simple design turns into something beautiful in your hands! Your tutorials make beginners like me think that maybe one day we can also achieve this type of perfection in our cookies!!! Thank you!

  4. Amber! These are gorgeous. I especially love the silver sanding sugar ones. Just so pretty! I can see some other designs on cookies using sanding sugar this way too 😉
