We love our pink ribbon and football cookies, specially made for Diet Pepsi by our friends at Ocookieo! If you’re interested in making your own decorated cookies, here are some helpful tips for creating fun cookie designs. For more inspiration, visit Ocookieo’s Facebook page for great ideas!
- Cookie canvas - Try different sugar cookie recipes to find the best cookie canvas that works for you. Here’s a highly rated one from AllRecipes.com.
- Get it covered – Royal icing works best; sweet flavor and dries candy-hard for lasting decoration.
- Color-coded – Try soft gel pastes for coloring your icing. And for whites, always use a little white coloring – it’ll turn the naturally off-white icing into a bright, beautiful white.
- Basics first – Start with simple designs to work on basic techniques, and be sure to sketch it out before you start – don’t waste precious cookies and icing!
And most importantly - be patient! Cookies this cool take time and patience – no matter how advanced a decorator you are.
