Strawberry Royal Icing Transfers

Summer time is a perfect time for strawberry treats like cookies, cakes and cupcakes. Make them a little cuter by adding a strawberry royal icing transfer. They are easy to make and will add a cute touch to all your summer treats.

I think the strawberry royal icing transfers really did the trick. Don’t you?

You don’t have to be perfect with these because all strawberries are not exactly the same. If you look closely at the picture above, you can see some of the patterns under the wax paper. It is OK to have a carefree attitude with these. It will actually make them cuter.

Once you have flooded your strawberry shapes, let them dry overnight.

Strawberry Royal Icing Transfer Great for cupcake, cookie and cake decorations www.thebearfootbaker.comI stop decorating there because I don’t like storing these after piping the caps because the tips will break off.  So store these cute little guys and when you are ready to use them on your cookies, cakes or cupcakes, place a strawberry where you want and then pipe the strawberry cap.

Once I dropped them onto the ice cream, I added the green caps with a leaf tip and had myself a nice little treat. I just with the ice cream would have been strawberry. You can find the cute little cups over at Bakers Stock. They have all kinds of neat things there.
