With Teacher Appreciation Week coming up and Mother’s Day right around the corner, The Pink Little Cake Blog thought it would be nice to make some girly cookies that are perfect for the fashionista in your life, or just to show your kid’s teacher how grateful you are.

For these cookies, I picked some of my favorite cutters from the girl section of The Cookie Cutter Company's website. Make sure you check them out because they have plenty of designs to choose from.

The design of these cookies is very simple, yet elegant. Have you seen the Chevron pattern used in a lot of parties and sweets lately? The Chevron pattern is a bold pattern made with a series of V's laid out in a row. This look is certainly a design to try and play around with when decorating cookies. This blog gave me the perfect excuse to do it.

To make these Chevron cookies, you will need the following cutters and supplies:

  • Purse
  • Slippers
  • Bonnet
  • Hair Dryer
  • Lipstick
  • Royal icing in white, red and black. (Stiff for outlining and details. Also flooding consistency to fill the cookies)
  • Black ribbon for decorations. (You can also make the ribbon with icing if you prefer)
  • Tip #1 and #2
  • Squeeze bottles
  • Couplers and decorating bags
  • Wilton Silver food safe spray paint
  • Paper napkins

Making the hat, slippers and purse.

1. Start by outlining the hat with white icing using tip #2. Use black icing with tip #1 for the slippers and purse. (I used tip #1 because the cookies are smaller in size and I wanted thin lines)

2. Flood the cookies with white icing. (Notice I left some areas in the purse and slipper cookies without icing to fill later)

3. Let the cookies dry for a few hours.

4. Fill the purse’s pocket with white icing. Then set the cookie aside and let it dry until the icing has completely set. Use tip #1 to make the purse’s handle and zipper. Then outline around the pocket.

5. With a piping consistency, use tip #2 and red icing pipe to pipe a series of V's laid out in a row (The Chevron pattern). Then set the cookies aside to dry.

Just follow the instructions above for the Chevron pattern to decorate the hat.

1. Pipe two black lines using tip #1 to add detail to the hat. Then attach a ribbon bow with a dot of icing. (You can always make the bow using icing instead of the ribbon if you prefer)

To make the slippers:

1. Flood the cookie with white icing. Then fill the empty spaces with black icing using tip #1. Set the cookies aside to dry. After they are dry, attach the bow.

Making the lipstick and the hair dryer: (Because a girl can’t live without them, right?)

1. Start by outlining and flooding the cookies as shown in the pictures. Let the cookies set for a few minutes before flooding the rest of the lipstick cookies with the white icing. Then let the cookies dry overnight if possible.

2. After the cookies are completely dry, place a piece of paper towel in the middle of the lipstick cookies. Using the Wilton silver spray, spray the bottom part of the lipstick and the hair dryer cookies. Let cookies dry again.

3. Add detail to the cookies using black icing and tip #1.

I hope you liked this tutorial, and enjoy making your own easy Chevron cookies.
