Ooo-la-la...and awkward.

You know what feels strange?  Taking pictures of lingerie cookies at 7:30am. It just seems wrong.  Maybe because I'm in yoga pants with yesterday's mascara smeared under my eyes.

Speaking of strange and awkward...I posted a picture of these cookies on Instagram this morning as I was photographing them and then thought, "hmmm...have I just totally embarrassed kiddo and his classmates who follow my Instagram feed?"  Probably. 

Oh well.  Once you get over the awkwardness, these are just the perfect cookies for any lingerie wedding shower, bachelorette party, honeymoon shower, etc.

Your options are really limitless with the bra/panty sets. (I'm sorry to those of you who hate the word "panty"..."underwear" just doesn't cut it when speaking of lingerie.) ;) Take a peek at the Victoria's Secret website and you'll want to be making these all day.  (You'll also want to send those models a few cookies.)

use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make bra & panty cookies...decorating tutorial
You don't need a special cookie cutter for these.  Just use a heart-shaped cutter, flip it upside-down, and cut off the pointed end with a bench scraper or paring knife.

The corset cutter comes from Copper Gifts...

...as does the little marabou slipper cutter.  I'm of the opinion that no honeymoon should be without marabou heels...they are the sweetest things.

I loved mine so much.  Until we got back from our honeymoon and they started shedding, leaving feathers all over our closet.  Ah, romance.


To make these lingerie shower cookies, you'll need:

  • cut-out cookies, modified hearts, corset, and slippers
  • royal icing, divided and tinted with AmeriColor super black, copper (or warm brown for darker skin tones), electric pink, light pink, and white
  • icing bags and tips: #2, #1
  • squeeze bottles
  • sugar pearls
  • tweezers (for applying pearls)
  • white sparkling sugar
For all of the cookies, you'll start by outlining the shapes with piping consistency icing, then you'll fill the cookies with thinned icing.

To thin icing, stir in water a little at a time, until it is the consistency of a thick syrup.  When you drop a ribbon of icing back into the bowl, it should disappear back into the icing in a count of one-thousand-one, one-thousand-two.  One-thousand-three is ok, four is too thick.

Cover the icing with a damp dishtowel for a few minutes to let large air bubbles rise to the surface.  Stir gently, then transfer to squeeze bottles.

For the bra & panty sets:
You'll want to start by covering the entire cookie with a base of skin-tone icing.  For lighter shades, use copper; for darker shades, use warm brown.  Once the base layer has set for an hour or more, you can start with the rest of the decorating.

  5. Bridget,
    These are sooo cute. Did you reroll the dough you cut off the pointy end of the hearts or did you they get eaten? ;)
    I'm sure your son and his friends had a few giggles over these.

  22. Hi - Sorry for the dumb question. You filled the cookies with the "skin" colored icing and then let dry before you piped the bra/panty details?

    1. not dumb at all!!! You're exactly right. Fill in the cookie completely with a "skin" color, let it dry a bit, then add he rest. :)
