I resisted the Candy Crush craze up until about a month ago. It’s a good thing this game comes with restrictions on how long you can play at once, or else these Candy Crush cookies might never have been made.
For products used in this and other tutorials, visit the recommended products page.Candy crush cookiesI cut these mini cookies by hand (except for the round ones). They were made using my Orange Vanilla Spice cookie recipe, which is available in my tutorial shop.

I used Wilton and Americolor gel pastes for the Candy Crush color palette.

Yellow: Wilton Lemon Yellow + Golden Yellow
Purple: Wilton Violet + Pink
Blue: Wilton Sky Blue
Green: Wilton Kelly Green
Red: Americolor Tulip Red
Orange: Americolor Tulip Red + Wilton Lemon Yellow
Brown: Americolor Chocolate Brown + a spoonful of cocoa powder
The pink stripes on the “sweet” plaque cookie were made using Wilton Pink.
Here’s a video on how to make Candy Crush Cookies.

 
All of the cookies in this set were iced using flood consistency royal icing.

  1. Hi Amber – your cookies are always so amazing…you are truly inspiring! I have a couple of random questions for you. First, when you go back to add to the blue/purple/orange cookies after leaving the base to dry, how do you store your icing? Do you transfer it out of bags, then mix it up and put it back in the bags? Or do you have a better trick? I can barely leave flood consistency icing for more than an hour or two without it starting to separate.

    And my other question is what brand of food color marker do you use? Is that a Wilton pen? I have AmeriColor, but it wicks really bad on the tissue paper.

    Thanks so much!

    • Thank you, Ashley! I empty the bags out and store the icing in air tight containers in the fridge until I’m ready to use it again. It does separate when it’s sitting for a while, so I just stir it by hand before I put it back in the bags.
      I use FooDoodler brand markers. They work great!

      • Thanks so much Amber! I just bought some of the FooDoodler pens and can’t wait to try them. I’m so glad I asked because I’d never even heard of that brand before, despite many searches!

        Also, referring to a question below, I’m just curious why you DON’T use couplers?

        • That’s great! I think you’ll be happy with them.
          I feel like couplers sort of get in my way when I’m piping. I’m just used to piping without them now!

  2. Amber these are fantastic. They all look so cool. I as well resisted the Candy Crush craze until a few months ago. Then I found out the way to get more ‘lives’. The game is addicting and I surely have to have some self control and say “okay no more for the day” LOL. These cookies are going to be a big hit with Candy Crush fans ;)

  3. Thanks for the tutorials, Amber. I have to say I’m happy to find that you use Wilton colors; I was beginning to feel as if was the only one!

    How in the world do you keep the tips on without couplers?!
