Bridgerton-Inspired Royal Icing Cookies

Dear readers—let it be known, if there is a secret cookie technique out there, I shall uncover it and share every last detail. Lol. Today, we will go over how to make Bridgerton cookies.

The designs I chose for us are what I think we would find on a treat table like macarons, cakes, and flowers. I also had to include the paper and the queen’s silhouette.

All of the cookies in this post were hand cut. I searched an image, printed it, and used it as my template to cut around the cookie dough. Let us begin!

Supplies:
-royal icing in the colors of your choice (in both outlining and flooding consistency)
icing piping bags
Wilton tip #103 or #104 and a star tip

Macaron Cookies

Step 1. Outline your macaron cookie.

Step 2. Flood the areas you outlined and let dry for about 5 minutes.

Step 3. With the outlining consistency, squiggle icing along the gaps. Let crust dry another 5 minutes.

Step 4. Using your toothpick or scribe tool, poke your squiggles so they they resemble macaron feet. Let them dry and you’re done 🙂

Silhouette Cookies

Step 1. Use an edible pen to mark the face/hairline area.

Step 2. Outline, flood, and let dry.

Cake Cookies

Step 1. Outline and flood your cookie and let it dry.

Step 2. Add text to your cookie. You can learn how to do this in my post, 3 Ways to Add Lettering to Sugar Cookies. I went with Bridgerton quotes.

Step 3. Using your star tip, pipe a shell border around the cookie. I placed the tip against the cookie at about a 45-degree angle. Apply strong pressure to get a bigger base, then taper off.

Flower Cookies

Step 1. You’ll want to add some extra powdered sugar to your outline consistency icing because we want it to hold its shape a little better.

Step 2. Working directly on the cookie, use tip #103 to pipe a base for the flower on the cookie as shown.

Step 3. With wide end of the tip down, wrap the icing around the the base (this is your bud).

Step 4. Wrap the icing around your bud (about 3 petals), then again to add 5 petals, or as many needed to wrap around the flower.

Step 5. If you’d like to add leaves, cut your icing bag tip in a v shape. Like the shell tip technique, apply pressure and taper off.

Gossip Paper Cookies

Step 1. Outline and flood cookie and let it dry completely.

Step 2. With an edible pen, draw/write what you’d like on the cookie.

Step 3. I chose to make a royal icing transfer of the silhouette on the paper like we learned in this post, but you can easily draw any decorations on the cookie.
