HOW TO DECORATE WEDDING COOKIES

For these cookies I used my exclusive sugar cookie recipe and royal icing recipe. The cookie recipe yielded about 12-15 regular size 3 – 3.5 inch cookies. I like a thicker cookies so I roll out my cookies to 3/8″ using my Cookie Countess Precision Rolling Pin. The thickness of your cookie will change the cookie yield.

Helpful Decorating Tips and Tricks
Cookie Timeline
I like to break up the decorating process over a few days. It works better for my stage of life to do a little each day. Here is a sample timeline to show how long each step takes. 
DAY 1
Make and bake my cookies. I do not chill my dough so usually, this takes about 1 hour from start to finish. Mix royal icing, color, and prep all the icing bags. I like to color the day before because the colors will deepen over time. 
DAY 2
Outline and Flood Cookies. Make sure to allow them to dry in front of a fan for 1-2 hours before adding details. Add final details like airbrushing, piping and stenciling. 
Day 3
Always take pictures of your beautiful cookies. Make sure to allow 10-14 hours of drying time before packaging your cookies. I like to store mine on a baking pan with a lid overnight.
