Make Up Cookies

Mini Make-Up Sugar Cookies Decorated with Royal Icing

These mini cookies were used as cupcake toppers for a 12 year olds make-up party.

The nail polish, perfume, lipstick and lips were royal icing transfers.

  1. these are darling!!
    I have enjoyed watching your progress the past year. I started cookie-ing about 2 years ago. And I see that we follow many of the same cookie experts!
    Question - are you back to using Royal Icing, and not a royal glaze type combo?
    And if so, may I ask WHY?
    Just curious, because you seemed to really love the taste/texture of the other.
    I have never made traditional royal glaze - I am not a fan of the hard crunch.
    I, myself, use meringue powder and water, whip til frothy, add vanilla, and powder sugar, and then a squirt of corn syrup and 2 teaspoons of Crisco (keeps it soft, but hard enough to dry, stack, an pack)....
    I'm just always curious as to what others prefer, and why.
    thanks, and I love seeing all of your cookies!

    1. Hi Whitney! I use royal icing glaze. I guess I just refer to it as "royal icing" to simplify matters. I like it because it doesn't have the hard crunch of royal icing. It's softer. I add corn syrup. No crisco. :)

  2. thanks, good to know! I am glad to see that you are able to make such great cookies, with wonderful details, by not using traditional, hard royal icing!
    I appreciate you responding.
    Happy decorating
