What I love about the new cottage house cookie cutter is it can be decorated in any style you wish. There's just so many styles to choose from!
Here's how to recreate your own edible home below.
Cottage House Cookie Cutter
Just added to the shop is this new cottage house cookie cutter.
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of all the new farmhouse housewarming cookie cutter designs, including this cottage house cookie.
Click the link below for the downloadable template PDF file.
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 cutting out the template and tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
The Decorating Process
For the colors used for these cottage cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Light Blue royal icing (I used just a tiny touch of Americolor Wedgewood.)
- White icing (I used Americolor Bright White.)
- Black icing (I used Americolor Super Black.)
- Sage Green icing (I mixed Americolor Wedgewood with Americolor Ivory.)
- Brown Icing (I used Rainbow Dust Chestnut.)
For those without a projector, mark the guideline where the window, door and roof line should be, as shown. I made a template with template plastic from the PDF file above and used a food marker to draw the guidelines on the cookie.
Begin by filling in the window with a thin layer of light blue icing. Let this icing set for about 15 minutes.
With white icing, fill in exterior siding of the house, as shown. Let this icing fully dry (about 2 hours).
OPTIONAL: Once the white icing is dry, airbrush gray shiplap stripes. I used this pinstripe stencil in our shop. Be sure to cover the window area first with a small piece of plastic.
After airbrushing, add the black shutters, the black roof above the door, the brown door, and the small white chimney section.
Next, add the remaining black roof line. With stiff green icing, pipe the wreath on the door and the accent heart at the top.
Then add the decorative tree, the top of the chimney, and then the outlines around the door, window, and the center of the house.
The steps above are summarized in the time-lapsed video below.
Farmhouse Housewarming Cookies
Additionally, for farmhouse fans, I also came up with a 4-piece set of farmhouse decor designs. This cookie cutter set includes a blanket ladder, a floral pitcher vase, a charcuterie cutting board, and a thin house plaque. You can purchase the 4-piece set or each one individually.
For packaging ideas, I'm a big fan of this BRP long cookie box (12" x 5" x 1.5").
The set of four farmhouse decor cookies will all fit nicely in the box, as well as the three housewarming cookie designs too.
