Lovely Cake and Plaque Cookies
Darlene of Make Fabulous Cakes is such a multi-talented baker and decorator! She shows us how to create lovely cake cookies with CookieCutterKingdom's cake lid/stand cookie cutter and 5 piece plaque cutter set.
Who doesn’t love a good cake? Well, being a cake decorator, I might be a little bit biased.
So when I get a chance to make a cookie design for myself, naturally I see cake. These cake lid/stand cookie cutters are so adorable. I happen to have a collection of cake stands myself, so these are perfect!
For these cookies, I used CookieCutterKingdom's cake lid/stand cookie cutter and a few cutters from CookieCutterKingdom's 5 piece plaque cookie cutter set. CookieCutterKingdom also has sugar cookie and royal icing recipes.
Starting with the cake lid/stand cookies, draw the cake stand base. Here, I used pink and turquoise royal icing with medium stiff consistency.
For the first cookie design, draw a scallop on the top part of the lid.
Then, flood the bottom part of the lid with white royal icing.
Decorate with sprinkles. Here, I used some pastel mini sprinkles and heart sprinkles.
For the second cookie design, flood the entire lid area with white royal icing.
Add two lines of turquoise near the bottom of the cake. Then, add a dot to the top.
Decorate with sprinkles.
The cake stand cookies are done! But I thought it would be fun to put them in a frame.
To do this, attach the finished cake lid/stand cookies on to the Nottingham plaque cutter with some royal icing.
Flood the cookie one section at a time with royal icing.
Before the frosted section sets, add colored sugar sprinkles and tap off the excess.
Here's a handy video to show you the process from start to finish.
I also used the Adonis and Madrid cookie cutters from the plaque set to make the "love" and "cake" signs.
