Popsicle Royal Icing Transfers & Templates

Who doesn’t love a good Popsicle in the summer? I know I sure do. I like them so much I decided to make Popsicle royal icing transfers & templates for you today. And with this new “add a face to everything” phase, you end up with some pretty darn cute Popsicle Royal Icing Transfers.Easy-Popsicle-Royal-Icing-Transfers-thebearfootbaker.com_-(1)I wanted to let you know that you need to make extras. The popsicle stick will break so if you need 2 dozen, I would suggest you make 3 dozen. I always try to make my templates to be a bit more durable but, these were so cute that I had to make them even if I knew a few would break.

Supplies for Popsicle Royal Icing Transfers:

Popsicle Royal Icing Transfers thebearfootbaker.comBegin by making the popsicle sticks with the tan icing. Let it dry for at least 30 minutes.

You can fill them in totally or make it look like they have had a bite taken out of them. I like it both ways so I did a few of each. Be sure to add the popsicle icing onto the stick so it won’t break off as easy.

If you want your transfers to stick straight up in a cupcake or cake, pipe a white tale on the end of the design. White won’t bleed with your cupcake icing colors and it will allow you to see your entire transfer design without it being stuck in the cupcake.

I hope you are enjoying “Template Tuesday” as much as I am. I am working on some of your design requests and will be sharing them soon. I also linked these up at Whipperberry. I love her link parties. You can find so many cool things there.

  18. They’re so cute!!!! Thank you for sharing us the templates :) Do you print them with your printer or do you go somewhere? If so, do you print them on regular paper?

    • Hi Sofia,
      I print them on my home printer and then tape the template to the back of a baking sheet. I use painters tape to hold them in place. Then, cover the temmplates with wax paper and tape it into place. Once you do that, you are ready to pipe your designs.

      Just remember, let them dry completely before you remove them. It may take a couple of days. 😉
