I know we are getting into the coldness of winter here so it may be a bit weird posting ice cream and popsicles now....but there is an upside of these ice creams and popsicles, you won't get cold because they are cookies :P
We made these for Claudia's school netball fundraising this weekend, hope they will sell out ;-)
I only managed to take photo tutorial for the popsicle, sorry we totally forgot to take pics of the the ice cream decorating progress. The popsicle is super simple to make so hopefully it will make up for it :)
They are super simple to make in 3 easy steps:
1. Fill the bottom area of the popsicle with white icing in medium consistency, let it dry.
2. fill the rest of the cookie area with your preferred icing colour, let it overlap near the bottom so it will look like melting ice - see picture below. Let it dry completely.
3. Piped 2 black dots with black icing for the eyes and draw the eye lashes with black edible marker. Add the mouth with the same black edible market and lastly add light pink icing on the cheeks as blusher.
I reckon anything looks cuter with kawaii faces on them, it just add that little bit of personality don't you think so? :)
Well, we had a bit of an accident with the blue popsicle (as you can see from the photo below the top blue popsicle snapped at the handle) but they still look really cute grouped together in all different colours though :)
And of course, we have to show you the different colour ice creams and i also love the little lollies and jellybean cookies all around them :)
Hope this super easy popsicle and ice cream cookies encourages you to give it a try. If you do try this out, please let me know how you go, i would love to hear from you :)
In the mean time, hope everyone is getting ready for a lovely weekend!
Another attempt at creating one of the Disney princesses, this time we made Rapunzel and Pascal her chameleon :)
We don't have a cookie cutter to make Rapunzel, so we have to hand-cut her, we might get a cookie cutter made for her just in case we need to make her again in the future :)
To make Rapunzel, we start with using a skin colour icing in medium consistency. Flood her face area, neck and hands - see the picture below on the far left side.
Then use a purple colour icing to fill her dress, we use a medium consistency icing. Wait for about 10-15mins until the icing for the dress is crusted over and add the top shoulder of the dress with the same purple colour icing - see the middle picture.
After the icing for the dress is dry, we add the light purple icing for her sleeves - see the picture below.
The next few steps are about adding the details. Mark off the area of her dress with edible marker and using an outline consistency light purple icing add the top laces of her dress and the shoulders (see the far left picture below).
Then add the bottom lines of her dress with the same purple colour in outline consistency. We also added the black icing for her eyes and using an edible marker draw her mouth.
Lastly, use a medium consistency yellow icing and fill the area for her hair. We also added a few little details such as the flick of her eyelashes with black edible marker and with a link lustre dust we add the blush on her cheek :)
The pink flowers on her hair is optional, you can either add it in or leave it if you dont want it :)
Next is how to make Pascal the chameleon, we decided to go with the simplest face using a diamond shape cutter. This original design were from Callye the Sweet Sugar Belle :)
Here is the step by step picture tutorial on how to make him in 4 simple steps:
Step 1: Flood the entire cookie with green icing in medium consistency
Step 2: Add his eyes, white icing in medium consistency and while its still wet add brown icing in the middle, and let it dry. Once the brown icing is dry add the black icing in the middle.
Step 3: With an outline consistency black icing, pipe his mouth - see picture below.
Step 4: Lastly add the details of his crest (middle forehead) and his eyebrows with an outline consistency green icing.
Here are the finished result for Pascal the Chameleon ;-)
Next is the yellow flower, we tried to make it as close as the yellow flowers in the movie Tangled.
Very Simple flower in 3 steps:
Step 1: pipe the petals with orange or yellow medium consistency icing.
Step 2: Wait approx 10mins until the petal is slighty dry then add the centre with the same icing.
Step 3: Lastly add the swirls on the petal and the middle to give it definition - see picture below.
So there you go, here is the finished result of the the flower and Rapunzel together :)
We hope you enjoyed the tutorial and if you ever decide to try making these please let us know how you go, we would really love to hear from you :)
