I Scream, You Scream....

ice cream cones
...we all scream for Ice Cream!!!

So, they won't help to beat the Texas heat, but they're much easier to bring to a picnic!

Obviously, I really couldn't decide what sprinkles I liked best on these ice cream cone cookies.

Here's how to make them:
  1. Using a #3 tip, outline the ice cream scoop in white or pink (or whatever color you want) royal icing.
  2. Using a #2 tip, outline the cone in brown (AmeriColor Chocolate Brown mixed with AmeriColor Copper).
  3. Thin the icings with water until they reach the consistency of a thick syrup. Cover with a damp dish towel. Let sit several minutes.
  4. Run a rubber spatula through the icings and transfer to squeeze bottles.
  5. Fill in the ice cream using a toothpick to guide into corners.
  6. While the icing is still wet add the sprinkles of your choice.
  7. Fill in the cone in brown using a toothpick to guide into corners.
  8. Let dry at least one hour.
  9. Add the cone detail using the #2 tip in brown.

  10. I just found your blog a few days ago and have had fun looking at all your creations with cookies. So fabulous and Sooo inspiring! I'll be checking back often. I know this will get me going to try on my own. I work at an elementary school and was trying to think of something I could do for a back to school cookie to treat the staff.
    Any ideas?

  13. Even though I'm partial to chocolate ice cream, I'd definitely go for these cookies! I have a cookie cutter in this shape, and sometimes my decorating friends will turn it upside down and use it to make Santa heads.

  17. My favorite sprinkles are the long, narrow ones (cylinders???) --HA, homeschooling momma should know the term, shouldn't I?!? :)

    All the ice cream cones are adorable! (And your photographs of the cookies was excellent, as always, too.)

    My two older girls are interested in a couple of baking and decorating lessons. Would you consider tutoring (in real life?)

  24. I have made many different cookies. But have yet to make the ice cream cone. The sad thing is that I have it in my draw with the rest of my cutters. Now that you have made some. I guess I have to find a reason to make some lol.

    Yours came out great!

  28. YAY!!! I'm screaming! I know it has been hot there in TX. I have been in MS for a couple of months and it has been just as hot and dry there too. I have been in TN for the past 10 days and hate to tell you, but it has been in the upper 70's for highs and 50's for lows. I've even seen rain!
