We'd write notes during class discussing
These little locker cookies are a breeze to make...easier than remembering your locker combination...and so cute as a back-to-school treat! Try pairing them with some composition notebook cookies, apple cookies, or pencil cookies for a fun back-to-school set.
A little side note...the REAL star of the show here? The cut-out cookie itself. I'm calling these:
Super Vanilla Confetti Cookies. Ohmygosh. They are SO GOOD. This is one of two exclusive recipes you'll get when pre-ordering Decorating Cookies Party. Find more details about how to get the recipes here.
To make the locker cookies, you'll need:
- rectangle cut-out cookies
- royal icing, divided and tinted with AmeriColor Royal Blue, Super Black and Bright White
- couplers and tips, #2, #1
- disposable icing bags
- squeeze bottles
- silver luster dust
- small (clean) paintbrush
Use a #2 tip to outline the cookies in blue icing. Reserve some of this icing.
Thin the remaining blue icing with water, a bit at a time, stirring with a silicone spatula, until it is the consistency of a thick syrup. You'll want to drop a "ribbon" of icing back into the bowl and have it disappear in a count of "one thousand one, one thousand two." Four is too thick, one is too thin. Count of 2-3 is good. Cover with a damp dishcloth and let sit for several minutes.
Stir gently with a silicone spatula to pop and large air bubbles that have formed. Pour into squeeze bottle.
Fill in the outline with the thinned flood icing, using a toothpick to guide to the edges and to pop large air bubbles.
Let the cookies dry for at least one hour.
Use a #1 tip to pipe lines for the locker vents.
Use a #2 tip to pipe a door handle, lock, and three small stripes across the top of the cookie with white icing. Switch the tip to a #1 and add the top part of the lock. Let the white piping dry at least one hour.
Mix 1/4 teaspoon silver luster dust with enough vodka to make it smooth, but not overly thin. Paint this mixture onto the dry white icing. Let the luster dust dry for 30 minutes.
With a #2 tip, add the center of the lock in black icing. Switch to a #1 tip and pipe numbers on the top section.
Let the icing dry completely, uncovered, for 6-8 hours or overnight.
Here's hoping all of your kids got top lockers this year! :)
