With warm weather starting to make its way into the forecast, we can't wait for summer to start. Jenessa of Dolce Cakes & Confections shows us how to make a cute cookie version of our favorite summer snack, popsicles! How will you personalize our Popsicle Cookie Cutter with your own colors and sprinkles?
Carefully place the cookies on your pan and bake. If your cookies are misshapen, don't fret! Have you seen the shapes of some the real ones that come off of the ice cream trucks?! Also, I like to bake off the little cookie ends that I cut off. They make for perfect pop-able snacks. Man, try saying that three times fast…PERFECT POP-ABLE SNACKS, PERFECT POP-ABLE SNACKS, PERFECT POP-ABLE SNACKS!
I decorated these using 2 different methods. The first method is the traditional way and the second method is a little faster, but also a bit messier. I personally like using the second method because the cookies look more realistic. Either way, the end result for both methods looks wonderful so pick whichever you feel comfortable doing.
Frosting Method #1: Traditional
Flood your cookie with white royal icing and set aside to dry.
Once dry, pipe brown royal icing in a wavy pattern along the bottom half of your cookie and fill.
Sprinkle with white nonpareils and let dry. Easy Peasy!
Frosting Method #2: Unconventional
Carefully hold your cookie over a small bowl or shallow container. Use an extra popsicle stick under your cookie as a support if you need.
Now that your cookie is dry, use the brown royal icing to pipe a wavy line that runs ½ - ¾ of the way down your cookie and flood the top half. Make sure to cover the sides of your cookie with brown icing as well. Use an extra popsicle stick to help scrape off the excess.
Lastly, sprinkle white nonpareils on the brown section. I like to add all of the brown to the cookies, then add the nonpareils afterwards so they sit on top of the royal icing without sinking in too much.
Once your cookies are dry, you can place them in cellophane bags and tie ribbons around the sticks or just enjoy them as they are.
After making these, I kind of felt like I could work for Willy Wonka because I just made ice cream pops that never melt. Whether you like your ice cream frozen or cookie-fied, these can be enjoyed all year round!
