Supplies:

  • Chocolate Sugar Cookie Recipe: https://www.dominosugar.com/recipe/chocolate-sugar-cookies
  • Royal Icing Recipe:  https://www.dominosugar.com/recipe/royal-icing-meringue-powder
  • Mug templates (below)

  • Paring knife to cut cookies
  • 15-second count royal icing in light blue, light purple, white, and black (test the consistency by taking a spoonful of icing out of the bowl and dropping it back in. It should take about 15 seconds for the icing to be completely smooth)
  • Soft peak royal icing in light blue, bright pink, teal, and white
  • 12” decorating bags
  • Decorating tip numbers 1, 2, and 3 with couplers
  • Toothpick
  • Edible pink color dust

Instructions

  • From a chilled sheet of chocolate sugar cookie dough using the mug templates as a guide, cut the cookies with a paring knife. Bake and cool the cookies according to the recipe instructions.
  • Ice one mug with light blue 15-second count royal icing and a decorating tip 3. Use a toothpick to evenly distribute the icing. Add reflections with white 15-second count royal icing and a decorating tip 1. Repeat the process on the other mug cookie with light purple 15-second count royal icing. Allow the icing to dry about 1 hour.
  • Ice the whipped cream dollop and marshmallows with white 15-second count royal icing and a decorating tip 2. Use the toothpick to help shape the icing. Allow the icing to dry 6 to 8 hours.
  • Add eyes with white 15-second count royal icing and a decorating tip 1. Use the toothpick to help shape the icing. Immediately pipe pupils with black 15-second count royal icing and a decorating tip 1, then add reflections in the eyes by placing a small amount of white 15-second count royal icing with the toothpick on each one.
  • Pipe a mouth with black 15-second count royal icing and a decorating tip 1. Shape the icing with the toothpick.
  • Pipe an outline around the whipped cream dollop and marshmallows with light blue soft peak royal icing and a decorating tip 1. Draw a face with a black edible ink marker.
  • Draw eyebrows and eyelashes on the mugs with the black edible ink marker.
  • Apply edible pink color dust with a decorator brush to create rosy cheeks.
  • Add scarves with pink and teal soft peak royal icing and a decorating tip 1. Create a knit fabric effect by piping a series of wavy lines and tassels.
  • Pipe snowflakes on the scarves with white soft peak royal icing and a decorating tip 1.

  1. Love your work. (And just ordered your book!)
    OK, silly question. Is there a way that I can slow down your video tutorials when I watch them? I’ve seen many that play closer to real time, but this one was too fast for me to understand a lot of the details. (I’m a beginner.)
    Thanks so much!
