Zebra Stripe Sugar Cookies

November 26, 2011

Happy 8th Birthday to my sweet daughter Brooke!!  I’m still in shock that she’s 8 years old already-I know parents tell you all the time that the time will just fly but it’s very real when you’re experiencing it!  She requested a hot pink, black and white zebra stripe birthday party so I obliged 🙂

She kept moving hence the blurry picture which unfortunately is probably the best I got of her!

I didn’t take any pictures of the process of making these cookies but these were probably one of the easiest designs I’ve done.

1. Outline the cookies in hot pink royal icing, and let them set for at least an hour to avoid bleeding.
2. Fill the cookies with white royal icing and let that set 12-24 hours.
3. Create zebra stripe by outlining and filling elongated deformed triangles rotating from one side to the next.  The point is to make them look as irregular as possible but still following a pattern for a more realistic look and it may help to look up some pictures of zebra print first to get a better idea 🙂  Let them dry for 12-24 hours before packaging.  Now I’m not an expert on sugar cookies by any means but I think they came out pretty good!

    Thank you everyone for your sweet comments!! the trick to the icing for those who asked is the consistency-thin enough to spread but thick enough to hold its shape 🙂
