Cookie Templates for Chips & Guacamole Cookies
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available for the new food cookie sets.
You can download these cookie templates HERE.
If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
The Cookie Decorating Process
For these nacho cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Tortilla Chip Yellow royal icing. (I mixed Americolor Gold and Egg Yellow, with a touch of Orange.)
- Darker Yellow flood icing. (I mixed a little Americolor Warm Brown to the yellow above.)
- Lighter Yellow flood icing. (I mixed a little spoonful of the tortilla chip yellow icing above with a cup of white icing.)
- Green flood icing (I mixed equal parts Americolor Egg Yellow and Americolor Mint.)
- Black piping icing (I used Americolor Super Black.)
Tortilla Chip Cookies
Begin by filling the right side yellow tortilla chip area. Immediately add the freckle dot details with the darker and lighter yellow icing. Shake the cookie smooth. Let this icing set for 10 minutes, repeat forthe left-side chip.
Allow for this base icing to dry for about an hour.
Finish this cookie by adding the eyes with black icing. Outline the edges of the chips and draw on the smiles.
Begin by filling in the middle bowl section with dark gray icing. Let that icing set for about an hour.
Then fill in the two leg sections and the green guacamole top section. Let this icing dry completely.
After the base layer had time to dry, it's time to add the lettering.
Finish this cookie by outlining the bowl and the guacamole top for dimension.
