Cupcake cookie lolly’s

Cookie lolly's

I have been playing with the cookie dough lately and made a lot of cute cupcake cookie lollies? or simply just cookies on a sticks. These cupcake cookies have been on my “to do list” for a very long time and I finally had a go making them. I dont have a special cupcake cookie cutter so I sat down and draw a template myself. I am very satisfied how they turned out and I have more cake inspired cookies on the way because I had a great time decorating them.

It is sugar cookies decorated with royal icing and you can see more cupcake cookie lollies at my gallery.

Happy Caking!



  1. Hi Luise !!! First I want to say that I Love your blog !!!!
    Please a want to know how a cover a cookie whit royal icin !!!
    Could you help me?
    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Amber: Wow that sound amazing. I am so glad that my cookie templates could help:-)
    To get a more straight border use a fine damp brush to help get the border in the right places.

    I will have to get back to you on the cupcake recipe.

  3. Hi Louise,

    I made these cupcake cookies for a charity fair using your templates and it sold out in less than half an hour, all the kids were ogling them before the event even started, ha ha, it sure was a crowd pleaser.
    I followed your design for the pink and brown cupcake but changed the blue and brown one, I used a white and blue design instead and bordered the white cupcake with a yellow cloud-like border.
    This was my first time icing anything and each big cookie took me 2 hours, whew! The borders were very shaky, any advice on that?
    I also made some cupcakes using Betty Crocker’s Supermoist Chocolate cake mix but the cupcakes didn’t have the beautifully rounded dome like yours, it kind of looked like a steep-hill mountain and the sides shrunk in, it looked like a moat surrounding the mountain, yuck! Can you give me a recipe that has a rounded dome like the perfect ones you make? It will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!!!

  4. Laura N: Thank you. I decorate the cookies like you said. Stiff for outlines and rynny for the filling.

    Scalbob: Thank you. For your request on a tiger cake have you tried Goggle image “tiger cake”? you could be lucky to find some insperation.

  5. This is such a great website – still finding my way around…

    But just wanted to ask all of you out there – has anyone made or seen a tiger cake? My son has requested a “ra ra” for his 2nd birthday and I am looking for ideas.

    Thank You!

  6. These cookies look stunning! absolutely beautiful!
    Do you use the runny icing for the filling in of the cookies and the stiff icing for the boarder lines or outlines?
    Must try making cookies with this icing!:)

  7. Louise, I know about the tappit set, but the problem was that I came up with the ideathe day before the actual birthday, at 2 am in the morning :-). It’s hard to find cutters with this time range ๐Ÿ˜€
    Same thing happened to me with my own birthday cake- there are million heart cutters, but the only store around us that is open 24/7 is Walmart, and they didn’t have it, so I made a heart template and cut by hand 40 hearths with a heart shape whole in the middle. Call me crazy ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Hi Tandoori:

    I am glad that you like my blog and the cookie templates ๐Ÿ˜€ Sometimes templates must be the way if you cant find cutters ect.

    Btw I know it is a bit late, but did you know that FMM have a tappit set with a small guitar? Still I like when people makes the decoration all by them self (more personal) but sometimes short cuts is the way.

    For your question on how to get more comments I must say I really dont know. Thats the thing with blogging you never know if it will hit or fail. I just write….:-)

    Have a nice day!

  9. Dear Louise, I just wanted to let you know, that I love your blog! The things you are creating are amazing!
    I really related to the ” cookie template” story, since I did a similar thing for a really small guitars for a cake that was for a friend of mine. I remember that 24 guitars as small as a half a finger took me almost 4 hours to cut, then to paint them and add small details…oh, just thinking of it is exhausting ๐Ÿ™‚
    But it was rewarding, as in your case- amazing cookies came to this world. ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way I love the “cookie-pop” idea :-)!!! Very creative!
    Give me some advice, how do you get people to comment on your blog :-D, I’ve been bloging myself almost a year, I have really good amount of traffic on the website, but nobody ever comments anything! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Happy caking! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Kimberley: I just use a regular sugar cookie dough without baking powder. I do roll it out a bit thicker. Try look here there is a great how to on how to make cookies on sticks and there are nice recipes as well.

  11. Thank you Louise for sharing these adorable cookies with us. Do you have a special recipe for sugar cookies to keep them from falling off the lolli sticks I can’t seem to keep mine attached to the sticks. I have tried several different recipes and haven’t had any success. I’ve noticed if I roll the dough too thick it loses it shape and if it’s to thin it falls off. Help! Thanks:)

  12. Hi Louise:

    I m a fan of your blog, I wrote you by Flickr mail, asking you some questions that you have just answered, thanks ,

    I made your cookies (are in my postream) with the template and the are beautiful for me, never as yours, of course!!! the edges came out rough… i now have the trick to smooth it with my finger.

    Ill be waiting for the tutorial and the recipe for the icing, because it didnt turned so perfect as yours.

    Las delicias de vivir

  13. Hvor er dine cookies bare fantastiske, sรฅ lige dem alle pรฅ flickr, og jeg er som altid vild med din kreativitet.

    Skal vi snart ha’ gang i den der torsdags-klub igen????

  14. Bakerette: Yes I know that site I also use the site but mainly I order from the UK or ebay.

    Ulla-Britt: Uhh det kunne vรฆre sรฅ hyggeligt!!!!

    Kelsie: Thx. Your cookies are cute too.

  15. Hey Louise,
    Love the cookies..maybe you know this already but there is a great website called “kitchen collectibles”, it’s a workshop in the US that makes a wide range of copper cookie cutters. I think peggy porschen buys some of her cutters from there. I saw a cup-cake cookie cutter (look under ‘food’) and I think they also custom make anything you want! They also ship internationally. I live in Dubai and ordered so many things from there and they were so great to deal with!!

  16. I can see that many of you are interested in how I made them and therefor I will try making a small tutorial and I will make sure that everyone who is interested can get the template I made. Just be a little patience…. Untill it is ready I will try reply your questions:-)

    I cut out the cookies with a small sharp knife. I find it best to cut while the cookies dough is still cold and NOT baked. If there are any rough edges I carefully smoothe with my finger.

    After the cookies is cut I take a lolly stick and twist it into the cookie. carefully turn the cookie over and cover up with some dough. This fab trick can be seen on Karens Cookies:

    When I do the flooding I make sure that it is a thin and runny icing and I use one of those brilliant squeze bottles. The icing set up more even and smooth by doing it this way. I thin down with water.

    Whenever you do the out lining of the cookie or the details when the flooding icing is dry I use a soft icing.

    Yes it would be great if I could get this one into a real cookie cutter!!!

    Thanks to all of you for the comments. I thought that you would love them ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Hey, I jsut stumbled upon this for the first time, so I aplogize if you cover this a lot, but

    a)do you cut the cookies post- or pre- baking?
    b)how doyou stick the sticks in the cookies? Bake them in? Stick them in afterwards? How do you stop the cookie from splitting/breaking around the stick?

  18. Louise! Congratulations for these lovely cookies!What a great treat for a babyshower!
    As everyone has asked, What’s your trick for that smooth icing?
    Greetings from Caracas-Venezuela!

  19. These are adorable! You should definitely have a cookie cutter made from your’s the best one I’ve seen so far!

  20. Hi Louise! They are adorable! How do you get your icing spread so perfect on your cookies? I can never get mine to look that great! Happy Caking!

  21. Louise I saw these on flickr too…they are really beautiful…I was going to ask where did you find the cutter until I read that you made the template yourself…how clever!!

  22. Wow i saw the photos on Flickr and they are all stunning cookies!! You are very talented and the template for the cupcakes is perfect!
    Great job honey!
