Inspired by the latest cupcakes I wanted to try and make some strawberry cookies. I made a paper template in two sizes. (I regret now that I did not add a little stem to the berry templates but I will do that the next time I make strawberry cookies)
I decorated the cookies with royal icing made with meringue powder. The first time ever that I try and make royal icing this way. It was really easy to make, only I’m not so sure that I like the taste of it…?
I made two tones of pink color and piped white dots in the wet icing to make the “seeds”. I added the green icing on the next day. I also made a little sweet cookie favor bag, to go with the strawberry cookies.
These are Wonderful looks so real!it sounds very pleasant to the taste
The topping sweet color is light with my favorite flavor..just love it!
Those are gorgeous Louise! Hmmm, a cocktail stick? I might just try that! 🙂
How did you get the texture/look of the green icing? It looks so real. Great job.
I used a cocktail stick when I flooded the green part 🙂
I love it ^^
Louise,Loving all here 🙂 Well, Quick Question: I’m with a doubt, can you help me? When to use: rolled fondant, and when to use: gum paste? Thanks
For covering cakes, cupcakes and cookies you use rolled fondant. If you want to make flowers, figurines and so you use gum paste.
At some points you can also use rolled fondant for small simple flowers.
These look so great! I absolutely love the packaging 🙂

This is perfect as gift for a friend or to your love ones.
This is so pretty and yummy Louise.
They look adorable, well done Louise
So, I guess you liked the taste of the Meringue-icing… Do you have a receipe op that?
Well I did not like the Wilton meringue. So I have bought some MP from CK. I used the recipe from Bake at 350 https://bakeat350.blogspot.dk/2010/01/royal-icing-102-or-201-or-whatever.html
Adorable! You could still pipe on a little sideways stem, or add a little stem-shaped piece of candy. They are enchanting no matter what!
I could but the cookies are long gone…… 😉
