It’s Friday the 13th! It’s also my birthday, so I put together a video tutorial on how to decorate these birthday cake cookies.

I made these cookies using my Orange Vanilla Spice cookie recipe, which is available in my tutorial shop. You will also find lots of cookie decorating video tutorials there that will teach you basic skills like making royal icing and flooding a cookie as well as more advanced techniques such as piping ruffles, roses and leaves.
The colors I used for this project are Americolor chocolate brown, Wilton teal for the candles, and Wilton lemon yellow mixed with a little golden yellow for the flames.
The candles were made using the royal icing transfer method. I usually let my royal icing transfers dry overnight, but since these were so tiny, I was able to use them within a couple of hours.
I covered the cookies in flood consistency royal icing and the shell border was piped with stiff consistency royal icing with a star tip 16. Read this post to learn about the different icing consistencies that I use most often when decorating cookies.
