April Showers Cookies

I am back to practicing decorating sugar cookies and feeling a slight cookie redemption coming on after posting those wackadoodle goatlambs a few days ago.

I ain't bragging or anything. Just saying the cringe factor was way less when I finished these.

'Cept please don't look too closely at the polkadots on the umbrellas.

They are completely uneven. To compensate, I coated them with disco dust.

I coated all the cookies with disco dust.

Every cloud needs a silver lining.

It's a compulsion of mine and disco dust makes everything better.


Someone needs to put some disco dust on Khadafy.

This time I used Sweetopia's sugar cookie and royal icing recipes. Both are winners. Her cookies are works of art. If you have not visited, I highly recommend her site not only to ogle her gorgeous creations but she also shares kick ass decorating tutorials.

Here's what I used on Mine.

For the Clouds:
A few dabs of Wilton's black gel color into the icing to get the gray color/Silver disco dust 

For the Raindrops:
Wilton's Hyacinyth Blue gel color
Blue Topaz disco dust
Pearl white luster dust

For the Umbrellas:
Wilton's Teal color gel/teal disco dust
Wilton's Violet color gel/lavender disco dust
Wilton's Kelly Green color gel/apple green disco dust

Sweetopia's royal icing came out very white but I squeezed a few drops of Wilton's White White in anyway.

For a great video tutorial on how to create the polkadots, check out this post on University of Cookie.

  7. Love love love your work!!! You gave me an awesome idea with the disco dust (I love that you call it that too, hehe!) I'm making tie dye cupcakes and thought the dust would be a nice compliment to the frosting.
