Decorated Princess Cookies

Princess Cookies

Believe it or not, there is always a story behind an elaborate cookie set. These princess cookies are no exception.  My home is filled with boys. Throughout our home you will find basketballs, video games and very large shoes. Since I do not see it often, it is a delight to get a request for frilly, girly and all things pink and purple. A couple of weeks ago I was talking to my treasured friend from high school, Julie. She was telling me how she wished I could make her daughter’s birthday cake. While I may not be able to make her cake, I can sure make her cookies and get them to Texas unmelted for Madison’s fourth birthday.

Awhile ago, I saw these amazing princess cookies over on Sweetopia’s website. I stared for hours thinking, “how fun would it be to make those?” Marian even included links to the art, done by Suisei Ojii Sama, that inspired her cookies. I was also inpired by Sugarbelle’s Pascal tutorial and Sparkling Sugar Sweet’s adorable Dorothy. I finally have the excuse to do them! The only snag in this adorable idea is that characters SCARE ME! Especially eyeballs! They can make or break the cookie.  There could be nothing worse than spending hours decorating a cookie, get to the eyeball and wreck the cookie. If you follow me on instagram you got to see some of the steps I took while making these intricate princess cookies. One cookie even got an eyelift.

One night, while stressed out over these darlings (clogged PME tips are not fun), I heard music coming from the other room.  My husband knows that when he plays the piano it relaxes my nerves. But then I listened a little closer, he is actually singing. You need to understand my husband does not sing, unless he is doing a Weird Al type of thing by making fun of something.

I could not resist sharing this song with all my decorator friends. This past weekend I spent a good amount of time tweeting back and forth with my friend Tara, The Shaky Baker, who decided to make some insane Candyland cookies at the same time I was working on the princess cookies. You should pop over to her blog and read about her fun adventure. My husband was making fun of the two of us, saying, “What’s next? Projecting holograms from your cookies?” Hmmmm…something to consider. But for right now I will just try to tie up this long winded blog post.

Cookie Decorator Theme Song

(Melody from The Little Mermaid, Part of Your World)

Look at this stuff. Isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?

Custom Cookies

Wouldn’t you think, I’m the girl, the girl who has everything.

Look at my pantry, treasures untold.

How many cookie cutters can one pantry hold?

Looking around here you think,

Does that piping gel come in pink?

Custom Cookies

 I’ve got ovens and mixers a-plenty.

I’ve got fondant and sugar galore.

You want cookie cutters, I’ve got twenty.

But who cares? No big deal. I want more………..

Custom Cookies

 I want more followers on Facebook,

I wanna see, wanna see who’s following me on twitter,

Surfing around on that, site-what do you call it?

Oh, yeah, Pinterest.

Custom Cookies

Being a home baker you don’t make too much,

Average hour is about a $1.50

Walking around wondering, what is that term,

Oh, working for free……

Custom Cookies

Up where I bake, up where I pipe,

Up where I stay up working all night,

Working for free, oh yes I can be,

Part of that WORLD.

Thanks for letting me share my princess cookies and theme song with you. Happy Decorating!
