How to Decorate Cookies for a Bachelorette Party

Spice up a bachelorette party with cookies in shapes that evoke the wedding... or the honeymoon.

Instructions

  • Step 1: Gather cookie cutters Look for wedding-themed cookies cutters, like a wedding gown, a diamond engagement ring, a tiara, or a wedding cake. Depending on the guest list, you may opt for more risque, adult-themed cookie cutters.
  • Step 2: Roll dough Roll out the sugar cookie dough with the rolling pin. Use the cookie cutters to press into the dough to form individual cookies.
  • Step 3: Bake Transfer cookies to a cookie sheet and bake as directed or until golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely.
  • Step 4: Divide icing Divide the icing into thirds, using a different food coloring for each.
  • TIP: Use the wedding colors to personalize the cookies.
  • Step 5: Frost Frost the cookies with one color icing using the offset spatula or butter knife and allow the icing to dry completely.
  • Step 6: Pipe Fill the pastry bag with a different color frosting and use a fine tip to outline the cookies and create details, including rosettes, flowers, names, or initials. Just think of your cookies as giving the bride a taste of married life.
