Daisy Cookies With a Rose Tip

My daughter loves daisies. They are her favorite flower and I can see why. They are beautiful! In the movie “You’ve Got Mail,” Meg Ryan said daisies are the friendliest flowers and Madison and I agree! I am going to show you how to make cute daisy cookies that are really fast and simple. You won’t believe how EASY they are to make!! I love the color brown. I wasn’t sure how these were going to turn out but I am really happy with them.


Your favorite cookies outlined and based with your favorite colors

Thick White Outline icing in a bag with a Rose Tip

Rose Tip # 102

Outline colors for borders and daisy centers

First, outline your cookie with whatever background color you want. This time I want blue:)

Next, flood your cookie and let them dry overnight.

Now, with your thick white outline icing, hold the fat side of the rose tip away from you. Hold it slightly above the cookie and apply a little pressure and let the icing build up a little without moving the tip.

Then, gradually begin to pull the bag toward you as you continue to apply pressure. As you get close to the edge of the cookie, gently decrease the pressure until you reach the edge.

Make as may petals as you want using the same steps. You can do a full daisy in the center or just make some on the edges like I did.

Next, with your yellow icing, pipe a few dots in the center of each flower.

I added a second layer of petals to these. It still needed something so I added a few dots and a border.

I like the double petals on the green too.

But these are my favorite!! I love the white flower with the brown background.  Hope you like them too:)

Happy Creating,

    What a great technique! I adore the brown version – they are so eye catching & work so well as a colour scheme.

  20. Well, I don’t know if anyone loves daisies as much as me – they were my wedding flower! I might be the only one on the planet who had daisies for their wedding! Wish I would have had these cookies too! :) Beautiful!

  21. I will have to try this technique; they sure look pretty! Sunflowers are my favorite, but daisies are a close second:)

  27. The cookies are great, but could you tell me where I can find the ant cookie cutter. Thanks

    • It is the caterpillar cutter in the second picture. If you click the link to Off the Beaten Path or Karen’s Cookies it will take you right to their sites where you can purchase it.

  28. Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for these, pretty girly and who doesn’t love a daisy. Yes, and just love all the colours and cannot pick a favourite. l am new to the wonderful world of cookies, but am hooked hooked hooked. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring. I did try to emulate your daisy, but disaster!!. I know you hold the fat end of the tip away, but is that the narrow side or the wide as I just must try again. Warm wishes from Australia.

  29. I’m a cake decorator but i love to make cookies. I really love your cookie design & etc. like everyone I can’t wait to try your tips. thanks
