Let's kick off the week with a magical Unicorn Cookie tutorial! Use the graphics in the video to learn when to dry icing and what tip sizes are used!

The other videos that will be shared this week are the stenciled unicorn, a unicorn cake, a rainbow cloud with star confetti, and rainbow unicorn poop! 

We'll be using Rainbow Confetti in two of the tutorials. So, check out this video to learn how to make your own Rainbow Confetti using royal icing and a heart and stars stencil. This confetti is fragile, so make extras. Plus, I found that the thicker icing worked best. So keep the icing stiff and apply generously to the stencil for the best results. 

Let the magic of Unicorn week continue with this beautiful rainbow stenciled cookie. Watch and learn how to apply rainbow icing to your scraper to create this multi-colored image! Use tip #13 to add a few colorful rosettes to complete the design!

The unicorn fun continues with an adorable Unicorn Cake Cookie! See how to use rainbow confetti on a cookie design and make perfect eyelashes every time with a stencil!

Where there are unicorns, there are Rainbows with Star Clouds. Check out this colorful and easy accent cookie design that uses the star rainbow confetti! 🌈

Did we save the best for last? I think so. LOL. How about a Smiling Rainbow Unicorn Poop cookie!?!?!

These are the cutters featured in the unicorn tutorials.

I'll be using the rainbow cloud from the Sugarbelle Enchanted Set, the LilaLoa plaque, the Unicorn Head Cutter, the Emoji, and the Unicorn Cake Cutter.

The stencils that are used are the Unicorn Head, and the Unicorn Bundle Set.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorials this week!! 

And remember, always be yourself unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a Unicorn!

Happy Decorating,

Anne

How to Decorate Baseball Cookies

posted Wednesday Apr 05, 2017 at 06:24 PM by Anne Yorks — 3 comments

This is a big week for baseball fans - the opening of the season! And to celebrate, we have FOUR fun baseball video tutorials! Watch and learn how to make the adorable cookies from this collection. They are sure to be a hit at your next team party.

Are you new to decorating? Before starting your first project, check out our FREE videos! Click here to check out our 'getting started' tutorials for videos on how to make royal icing, piping and flooding, and rolling and baking. Recipes are included in the videos!

So let's get started with the baseball cookie line-up. First at bat...

This all-star player cookie is perfect for your next team celebration. Easily customize his uniform to your team colors. Watch and learn how to use the Sugarbelle Boy cutter (from the Shape Shifters Set) to create a game-winning design.

Create those itty bitty pinstripes on the pants using the red food marker is from the 10-pen fine tip set from Foodoodler, click here to see it in our online shop! 

How to Decorate a Baseball & Glove Cookie 

The baseball and glove are two easy peasy cookie designs – great for beginners! Watch my trick to get perfect laces every time. And learn how I use Wilton tip #44 to create the webbing on the glove. These cookies are the perfect accent to the All-Star Player cookie we posted yesterday!

 

Check out the baseball glove cookie cutter here (it's only $1.99!) 

Next up is one of my favorite designs...the home plate cookie! 

Do you like this text graphic. CLICK BELOW to print or download your own copy to use in your KopyKake or projector here!

And finally, the cute baseball bat cookie. Can you guess the cutter used for this one? 

It's the milk bottle from the Sugarbelle Cookies and Milk Cutter set - available in our online shop here!

Check out the video to making this cute cookie with the wood grain. The brown marker (also from the 10-pen Foodoodler set) make it quick and easy. I like to start with a small circle and then wiggle the wood grain lines around and around. Check it out....

The smallest oval from the Sugarbelle nested set was the perfect guide to setting off the slugger label. :) Tricky, huh!? It's great to have little tricks to keep designs consistent from cookie to cookie.  It's a home run!!

I hope you enjoyed these fun videos...the perfect treat for your next team party. If you make some of these designs and post then, be sure to tag me (@flourboxbakery on IG and facebook). I'd love to see your work!!

Happy Decorating,

Anne
