Unicorn Sugar Cookies
Once upon a time, my daughter turned 6 and wanted unicorn cookies. I don’t know why this popped into my head today, since it was almost two years ago now, and I wasn’t thinking about birthdays or cookies or anything even remotely related, but there you have it. It did, so I’m sharing these with you today.
These were the first cookies I’d ever iced like this, and I watched some YouTube videos about how to get the icing consistency right, and how to pipe and flood them properly. Other than being really time-consuming, they weren’t difficult at all.
First, I piped the edge with white. Then flooded. Then, I added the mane, one colour at a time. First, each unicorn got its red piece, then orange, etc. To get the icing colours bright, I used Wilton gel (not liquid) dyes. The horns are decorated with pink sugar.
My icing is really simple. I use approximately 4C of icing sugar, a drop of vanilla, a couple drops of lemon, and water to consistency. It’s that simple. Not at all accurate, but it mostly goes by consistency anyhow. If it’s too runny, add more icing sugar. If it’s too thick, add a drop of liquid.
