Wedding Cake Cookies

I am a tomboy. It is true. I don’t know how I got that way, but it happened. I don’t follow the latest fashion or have my nails done more than twice a year. I do however, love wedding cake. Does that make me less of a tomboy? Well, what if I make wedding cake cookies? I don’t think a true tomboy would make wedding cake cookies! The only problem for me was to make a pretty design that would look like something a girl made and not a tomboy. Well, what do you think about these Wedding Cake Cookies?

Supplies for Wedding Cake Cookies:

Royal Icing Recipe
White 15 Second Icing
Light Pink and a Slightly Darker Pink 15 Second Icing
Gray 15 Second Icing
Pink Disco Dust

With the gray icing, make a thick line for the top of the platter. I know mine looks crooked but it just looks that way because of the martini cutter imprint. I promise, when we  add the white, it will look straight. At least that is what I am telling myself! LOL

Then, make a half circle for the center of the platter.
Next, make the base. Let this dry for about 20 minutes.

Next, make a line above the base.
Then, outline and fill in the part under the top of the platter. Let these dry for 20 minutes.

Next, outline and fill the last part. That wasn’t hard was it? I actually thought it was fun! Now for the roses.

I found this sticker and wanted to make these roses for these cookies. Aren’t they cute? I didn’t want to pipe them directly onto the cookie because, I wanted to add some Disco Dust. I only wanted the roses to sparkle and not the entire wedding cake cookies. So, I made a royal icing transfer.

For information on royal icing transfers, click here. (I took about 50 pictures of these and this is the best one. I tried and tried but, it was raining and my camera didn’t like these so please forgive me.)

I started with 15 second white icing. I made some shapes that resembled the clip art roses. Let them dry for several hours. Anytime you make RI transfers, you need to make a lot of  extras because they break very easily. If you want information on how to store royal icing transfers, click here.

The roses are really fun! Don’t worry about being perfect on these. The more relaxed you are the better they will look.
In the first picture, you can see how I took the light 15 second icing and made a swirl.
In the second picture, I added some half circles to look like petals.
In the last picture, you can see I just added a few more half circles until I made my way around the rose.
I didn’t show this part but, you will need to make some individual roses. Make a few of the bigger light pink ones and a few of the darker pink small ones. You will need these for the bottom two tiers.

With the darker pink icing, repeat the swirl step. You don’t need to do much here because, it is a much smaller space. The swirl is enough without adding the petals.

With a brush, sprinkle disco dust over the roses while the pink icing is wet. This will give your finished cookie a little bling!
Let these dry over night so you can easily remove them from the wax paper.

Now for the cake. With the white 15 second icing, outline and flood the top tier of the cake. While it is wet, add the first rose RI transfer.

Then, outline and flood the bottom tier of the cake. While the icing is wet, add the first RI transfer on the right side of the tier.

Then, add a single light pink RI transfer to the other side of the tier. It is starting to look good! Let this dry for another 20 minutes.

Now repeat the steps for the middle tier. The only thing different is, the rose on the left side of the middle tier is a small darker pink one. The only reason I did it that way was because it fit in that space better and didn’t look cluttered.

I would not be brave enough to ship these cookies because I would be afraid the cake stand might break. I will make them for local weddings or even a birthday parties.

Well, there you have it. This is my attempt at being a girly girl. I don’t have wicked mad girl skills but if I set my mind to it, I can make some Non-TomBoyish cookies.

Happy Creating,



  1. Yes, VERY girly-girlish and VERY PRETTY!!! Lisa, I must be a true-blue tomboy…Like you, I don’t follow fashion, and I’ve NEVER in my life had my nails done:) I prefer to call myself “down-to-earth”. 😉

  2. Those are so cute! And I love how you used the margarita glass cookie cutter to make a cake stand.

    • Thanks Debbie! I also used it on the dressmakers dummy cookies in the sewing set. It works great. I am now looking for other things to put on a stand! LOL

  3. Beautiful

  4. Those roses are unbelievable!! I just keep staring at them. I LOVE that style!!! These cookies are so pretty!!

    • Thanks Georganne! I am so glad you like them. I wish this was my “Style” but I seem to be better at rustic things:) I am still going to let the “Girly Girl” come out to play every now and then! LOL

  5. how elegant and yet modern. Nice job!

  6. Elizabeth L in Apex, NC says:

    Just gorgeous, and I lovelovelove the combo of cutters! They complement each other perfectly and create a fantastic cookie!!

  7. Oh yes, truly a girly girl today! The cookies are BEAUTIFUL!!! I couldn’t live without polish…however, just think of all the time & money you save by not getting your nails done. You have my permission to use that money for more girly cookie stuff! :)

    • Thanks Kim! I do get my hair done and that makes me feel like a girl:) I enjoy getting my nails done but I live in the middle of now where! I can use the extra money on more cookie cutters!!!! LOL

  8. Simple, Beautiful and BRILLIANT! I just love everything about these cookies. I also really like the rose design…very cool.

  9. Fabulous. You are a GIRLY GIRL for the day. Promise! ♥♥♥

  10. You are definitely girly! These cookies are stunning. Great job Lisa!

  11. Wow, I love every little thing about these!!! I love the cake stand look, and then those simplied roses are so pretty… the touch of disco dust, and they are perfection!!

  12. Honestly I think these are my favorite roses that I’ve seen. They look so simple to make, but absolutely gorgeous! I love how you combined the wedding cake cutter with the margarita! Genius!

    • Thanks Jaclyn! You are so sweet. I love the bottom of the margarita glass. I hope to see a lot of people use it to put things on a stand. Have a great day and thanks for the lovely comment:)

  13. Laura Perry says:

    Wow, you just keep kicking em’ out! Love this idea! :)

    • I am glad you like it Laura:) I can’t believe how easy it was. I think RI Transfers just become my favorite way to decorate. I know there will be more in the future:)

  14. Adorable…love how you used the margarita cutter for the cake plate~

  15. These are great for so many reasons!! First-I love disco dust!!! Who doesn’t really? AND-I love any kind of do ahead add-on. Especially when you need a large plaque cookie! Mostly though…I’ve been drooling over cake stand cutters, but they are pricey…and now I don’t need one!!!! Thanks for being brilliant!

  16. Brendag says:

    You are defiantly a girly girl today… those are really good. I also wanted a cake stand cookie cutter but was concerned about the price and how much I would actually use it… so there you go, thanks for the tip

  17. Those are wonderful. I, unfortunately, do not yet have the patience or desire to be so intricate. Maybe someday…

  18. I’m not sure what category I’d fall in. I love to make pretty cookies, get my hair and nails done, wear makeup but I can also swing a hammer like nobody’s business, lay tile, put up crown molding, install light fixtures, etc… So I guess that makes me a girly girl who’s too impatient to wait for someone else to fix things around the house. haaa……. BTW…. girly girl or tomboy, I think you’re perfect just the way you are and your cookies look amazing,

    • You are the perfect one D.J. The more I talk to you, the more I think we are long lost sisters!! I like to hammer and lay tile but I hate hanging crown molding!!! I did install my new kitchen faucet a few months ago.
      So the next time you are in Tennessee, we will build something girly together:) We will make two, one for me and one for you:)

    How do you make the scrolled design cookies in the photo. I watched a tutorial video on the Internet but just can’t get the hang of the design the decorator had down pat.


    • Did you watch the video by SweetAmbs? I have watched it about 20 times! I am still practicing. She makes it look so simple but it doesn’t come natural to me because I am tomboy! I actually threw caution to the wind and gave it a try but mine are not wet on wet. My bottom layer was dry when I added the pink. I will try to practice more and do a simple tutorial. SweetAmbs rocked it on her video!! Here it is if you haven’t see it?

  20. gorgeous cookies!

  21. Lisa, these cookies turned out so cute. I love the disco dust on the roses and the soft pink color.

  22. Beautiful cookies! I just love them! Okay I have a question, the other night I was lovingly sprinkling disco dust on my cookies, when for the first time I read the label and it says, “non-toxic, for decoration use only”. What?!?! I had used this on cake projects before so I was a little concerned. I searched the internet and got mixed feedback. Whats your opinion? Okay to eat right??

    • There has been a lot of debate over disco dust. I have to admit, I was as surprised as you to find that is it was “non-toxic” and didn’t say edible on the label. To use it or not is up to you. I think this is one of those things that people have to decide for themselves.

      However, I would suggest if you have a client that asks for it, you should tell them that it is non-toxic and says it is for decorating purposes only on the label. Let them decided if they want it or not and tell them about other options such as sanding sugar.

      Hope this helps!

  23. simply fantastic!
