Join us as we explore the step-by-step process of decorating these chick-shaped cookies with vibrant royal icing, piping simple details, and adding the perfect finishing touch with a pre-made royal icing bow. With just a few simple techniques, you'll create cookies that are as fun to make as they are to eat!
Before diving into the cookie decorating, we'll start by pre-piping all the royal icing bows using the bow pattern sheet and following its instructions. Once the bows are ready, we'll move on to decorating the chick cookies.
Using yellow flood consistency icing, outline and flood the body of the chick. Use a scribe tool to ensure smooth and precise shaping. Next, we'll pipe the chick's beak. Allow the icing to crust over. Outline and flood the chick's head, followed by the wing and feet. Once the icing has crusted, we'll add the final details by piping the chick's eye and lashes using stiff black icing. Finally, we'll attach the pre-made bow to each cookie with a dab of royal icing.
