It's probably no surprise that this cupcake cookie cutter is my favorite! I use it for every holiday and more!
We have been making one decorating video a month using this same cutter!! These are the videos we have made so far... Check them out on the Flour Box YouTube Channel here! (and I can't wait to show you what is coming, too!!! Some really fun stuff!)

Can you tell that I really enjoyed making these cookies...I mean REEAALLLLLY enjoyed it. They are so simple and fun and cute! What's not to love?
Good news, too...we made a time-lapse video of the decorating process. Remember, this video is sped up...so it does not show the drying time of the royal icing (recipe available here). I like to allow icing areas to dry a few hours before flooding the next area and piping the details to avoid color blending.
(Bonus: there is also a video of the Spa Girl cookie coming soon)
I also enjoyed making this tiki face. I used a onesie cutter to create this cookie! It was perfect!
We made 60 cookies. I was worried there would be too many leftovers. They were gone a half an hour after putting them on the dessert table!! It was crazy! Of course, there were a lot of kids at the party!
And that little flag at the top of the sailboat is created with tip #65s (it's a mini version of the leaf tip #70). They are both available here. That flag is so cute...and suuppppeeerrrr easy! I think that is my favorite part of the video.
I chose the anchor stencil to add a pattern to the sail - it is available here.
To keep the airbrush only on the right sail, I use a piece of paper to mask of the area that I don't want to be airbrushed. That pink contraption is called a stencil genie. It helps keep the stencil in place and is available from the www.creativecookier.com. If you don't have a stencil genie, you could also hold the stencil in place with a steady hand (rest your hand on the table surface to stay steady) or use magnets to hold the stencil in place.
For more nautical cookie inspiration...check out these cute photos of past projects!
Here is another version (without airbrushing) of the sailboat.
And my favorite - the sailor kids - aren't they so cute!?
I hope you enjoyed today's blog post!
I would like to wish you a fun and safe 4th of July,
