If you are a professional baker or cake/cookie decorator; look away!
I say this because this blog is about me “trying“ and while they could have turned out better, it was really fun and I learned a lot! The next time I want wedgwood inspired cookies I will probably hire a baker but learning the process gave me ideas for other projects to use the homemade icing on!
The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of milk (any kind of milk), 2 table spoons of cornstarch, 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla extract and one cup of powdered sugar.
To make the colors you will need food coloring as well and to write on the colored background or make designs purchase a white quick drying icing with built in skinny tip. Lastly, grab some tiny pearls to use on some of the cookies.
I did not make my own sugar cookies I used a local store brand that you break apart and bake for 15 minutes.
Add all of the ingredients except for the food coloring and stir by hand. Add that last!
Experiment by mixing small drops of color into the mixture until you get the desired shade. For the blue I wanted, I had to mix a tiny hint of red to cool it down. For the pink I used only a pinch of red and a teeny tiny drop of blue.
I used a spoon to drizzle the icing on the cookies and noticed the corn starch gives it a somewhat clear glazed appearance vs one you would get from a fondant!
I had to drizzle a few times to get a solid looking background.
Give them an hour or so to dry or you could end up with a thumb print on them. (see photo above) 😂
After trying out some random designs with the white icing and the pearls I ended up with a creative batch! I messed a few of them up so bad you couldn’t tell they were a cookie.
I ate all of those (not pictured) 🤣
Try this project out and let your kids or guests get creative and have some fun!
Happy holidays to all of my friends near and far!
