Letter Cookies Using Edible Ink Markers

This is a fun and simple cookie decorating project using FooDoodler Food Coloring Markers.

Start out with cookies iced in royal icing that has been allowed to dry overnight. The cookies shown here are mini size, about 1-1/4″.

Use your edible ink markers to draw on the icing.

The edible ink dries very quickly so there’s no need to wait if you want to package them up for gift giving.

  1. Hey!
    These are so cute! I’ve made similar style cookies but my question is how do you package yours? I find That when I put them in cello bags the ink smears, not so much when I put them in bakers boxes. Any tips?
    Could it be because my icing uses egg whites instead of meringue powder?

    • Thanks, Sarah! I think it’s more likely that the smudging is because of the marker itself and not the egg white in the recipe. What brand of edible marker are you using? I find that FooDoodler brand does not smear as much as others.

  2. I recently tried the markers on iced cookies (dried overnight) and then I packaged them. I came back a few days later to find they had bled. Have you had this issue? Any suggestions for a fix? I do live in whats considered a humid climate. Thank you!! Love your cookies and designs!

  3. Loving your blog! Are the sugar cookies? How did you manage to have them come out so perfect? My cookies kind of distort and puff up n diff places. This will be perfect for my students.
    Thanks in advance!
