Vintage St. Patrick's Day Postcard Cookies

Speaking of images printed on frosting sheets....

Printing vintage images and pictures is my favorite way to use the icing printer.  I LOVE vintage postcards....the artwork, the verses....they are so sweet!  So I scanned some old St. Patrick's Day postcards and printed them on frosting sheets.

Curious to try themI uploaded the images to Scribd just for you!  Download the document and crop and resize until you get them the size that you would like.  Then, follow the tips for printing, either at home, or at a shop with an icing printer.

The images were just placed on wet royal icing.  I used a #16 star tip and stiff royal icing (piping consistency) for the edges.

Have fun!  And may the luck of the Irish be with you....and your icing printer! ;)

  22. Hi Bridget! I am SO lovign your blog and all of your helpful tips! After reading a few other blogs, I've decided that I'd love to embark on a cookie decorating adventure!

    I was watching your sugar cookie recipe and then I watched TidyMom's video on how to roll and cut out, but since I've never done this before, I have a couple of questions...

    1. How long to you refrigerate before you cut out your cookies?
    2. How long do you bake at 350?

    Thanks for inspiring me! You are fabulous!!!

  24. Hey Nicole! I tried to answer your comment via email, but there is no email address linked to your blogger acct....it just goes to "no reply"). :)

    Go to the "cookie index" at the top of the blog; you'll find the cookie recipe pinked there with all of the instructions. Happy baking!
