How to Make Easy Woodland Log Cookies
Woodland Log Cookies are fun to make and simple because you don’t have to use a specific pattern. You can pipe thick brown royal icing to the edge of a circle cookie and fill it with tan royal icing and you’ve got yourself a really cute woodland log cookie. They’re great for Father’s Day, Yeti, hunting, and many other cookie sets. I enjoy them because you can freehand the entire cookies and they look a little like logs you see in nature.
If you add a little airbrush color to them I think it makes them look more like the real thing. Let’s get started.

Woodland Log Tutorial:
- Begin by making a few circle-shaped cookies in different sizes.
- Let them cool completely before you begin decorating so your royal icing doesn’t slide off the sides. Warm cookies and royal icing don’t play well together.
- Pipe a squiggly line around the edge of the circle so it will look like the bark on a real woodland log.
- Let the icing dry for about twenty minutes.
- If you have trouble with your royal icing sinking after it dries you can pipe a line of tan royal icing and let it dry for a few minutes. This line will act as support for your flood icing and help prevent it from sinking as it dries.
- Next, flood the center of the cookie with the tan royal icing and pipe over the top of the swirl.
- Use a scribe tool or a turkey lacer to smooth out the royal icing.
- Pipe a dark brown swirl on the tan royal icing and let the cookie dry for about twenty minutes and then get ready to airbrush.
- These cookies were airbrushed with The Cookie Countess Totally Brown Airbrush Color.
- Airbrush the swirl.

- And then airbrush the edge with the same airbrush color. See, I told you these cookies are easy to make.
- Now it’s time for the flower so pipe a dot of tan royal icing where you’d like to add it.
- Add the royal icing flower.
- Pipe the green leaves with the #352 leaf tip.
- You’re all done! Aren’t these cookies simple? I hope you have as much fun making them as I’ve had.
I know I mentioned in the last post that I was going to share this post with you the next day. Well, I should have shared it, but something unexpected happened. My son, his wife, and my two wonderful grandchildren came to spend the weekend with me. We were going to go visit and then we learned about the coronavirus so we canceled our trip. Thursday night I got a phone call asking if we’d like some visitors and I was thrilled! It was the best weekend we’ve had in a really long time.
We played in the creek catching crawdads, fished, rode canoes, played board games, and laughed a lot. So forgive me for being late with the log cookies. I was playing like a kid and loving every minute of it. I hope you all have a great weekend planned and get to see your family soon because it feels wonderful to have time with the kids and grandkids.
Now I’m back at work and loving every minute of it. More tutorials coming soon. Notice I didn’t say tomorrow? LOL
