Ballet cookies

Having a daughter who loves ballet, I just had to make these pretty ballet cookies for her. They are made with my own (paper) templates, so no cookie cutters used. I used a little Brush embroidery on the Tutu, to get the “look” like layers of tulle. I think that it worked out very good. Both cookies are decorated with royal icing.

The pretty little pink ballet shoe or point shoe if you like? Would also be charming to use as edible place cards for a pretty pink ballet party. The shiny pink satin ribbon just finish off the shoe.

I made three of each kind and I used the rest of the ballet cookies, as a little gift for my daughters ballet teacher and her assistant at the end of season dance yesterday.

Happy Caking!

    Oh my gosh.. I wish I had a mom like you when I was a little girl. Would be great if you made a tutorial for this actually.

    Hi Louise,

    Your biscuits are beautiful! I made the butterfly ones for our school fete and everyone loved them.

    I now want to attempt these gorgeous ballet ones. Just a couple of questions. When you pip the RI on do you do this by hand? It look like on the dress you have used a template but I am sure you have done this by hand. do you have any tips for a newbie working with RI? I was also wondering if you had a recipe for buttercream? I am going to make some of your gorgeous cupcakes. You are my inspiration! thankyou!
