I made these fun elephant and onesie cookies for my lovely sister who recently had her first baby. They were a huge hit at the baby shower! I have some other fun treats and pictures to share with you of the shower in a few days.
I used the sugar cookie recipe from Our Best Bites. I love it! I added a little almond bakery emulsion along with vanilla extract….yum! The royal icing recipe is from The Decorated Cookie. While I absolutely love the taste and texture of the icing for eating, I just can’t get it to decorate the same as the more traditional royal icing recipes.
For the super white cookies, I added a little Bright White AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste to the original icing (see Bake at 350 for an explanation). The black cookies were actually more of a gray color. I didn’t want to add a ton of black coloring to the icing, so I just planned on having gray cookies.
These cookies were a lot of fun to make! You should give some a try!
