I was asked to make some birthday cookies for a first birthday. The colors of the party were pink and gold. Talya’s mom asked for pink tiaras with gold accents and gold stars with pink accents. When she received the cookies, she was even more excited about the cookies than she expected!
I baked some tiara cookies using my favorite sugar cookie recipe that you can find here and here. I used my favorite tiara shaped cutter that I once got as a birthday gift! Once baked, I piped the tiara cookies with pink royal icing. Once dry, I used yellow royal icing for the details. Once the yellow was dry, I painted over all the yellow with gold pearl dust mixed with some vodka.
I had a clear vision of what I wanted these cookies to look like and they look just as I imagined! I baked a simple star shape and then iced them with yellow royal icing. Once dry, I airbrushed the star cookies with gold airbrush color. Then I used a star stencil that I designed and 3D printed. Working one cookie at a time, I placed the stencil over the star cookie and airbrushed it with bronze airbrush color. I carefully lifted the stencil off and had an amazing starry effect! I didn’t want to cover it up, but the cookies needed a number 1! So I piped the 1’s on in pink and they looked perfect! Happy birthday Talya!
