How to Make Adorable Pink Kitty Cookies
I love decorating cookies with my grandkids. It’s super fun and I love seeing their creativity when they pick up a decorating bag full of royal icing. They didn’t help decorate these pink kitty cookies, but I know my granddaughter Brooke will want to make them the next time we’re together. She loves cats and sugar cookies so I know these will be a hit. All we have to do is wait until school is out so I can spend a week with them swimming, going to Dollywood, and decorating every single cookie they can imagine.
I don’t think my grandson Tripp will enjoy this design as much as his sister does so now I need to figure out what he wants to decorate. I’ll let you know when I have a plan. Until then, will you make these cookies with me? Let’s get started!

- Cat Cookie Cutter- I honestly don’t know where I purchased this cookie cutter, but almost any cat face cutter will work. Here is a link to one by Ann Clarks: 4″ Cat Face Cookie Cutter. It’s super cute and if you want the pointy ears you can trim the dough before you bake it.
All the consistencies of the royal icing are 15 Second Consistency.

- I don’t know about you, but I like to have my design for the cookie done ahead of time. Before I bake the cookies I trace the cookie cutter and sketch how I want it to look. In this case, I wanted to cut out the cat’s nose and use it as a pattern so all of the final cookies looked the same. If you have paper, a pencil, and scissors it’s simple to do.
- I don’t need it yet, but once the cookies are baked I make sure the pattern still fits because the cookies could have spread as they baked. This is a good fit so let’s get started.
- Outline the cat’s face with the pink royal icing.
Time to flood:
- Flood the cat’s face with the pink royal icing and let it dry for a while. You need to add the pattern to the nose without crushing the icing so let it dry in front of a fan for a few hours.
Let the icing dry before you add the nose:
- Once the icing has dried enough use a turkey lacer to scratch the shape of the nose onto the cookie.
Add the nose and whiskers:
- Outline and flood the nose with the black royal icing.
- With the nose in place, it’s easier to know where you want the eyes. Pipe two dots and feel free to make one larger because it adds a lot of character to the cute little kitten.
- Next, pipe three whiskers on each side and a line from the nose to the bottom of the cookie.
- Use the white royal icing and add a line on the nose. It makes a cute little highlight.
- Pipe a small dot on the end of your turkey lacer (or toothpick) to add a drop of white to each eye.
The ears are next:
- Pipe two triangle ears with the white royal icing.
- Use the turkey lacer to help move it into place.
Add a few dots on the whiskers:
- Next, Add a drop of black royal icing to each whisker.
- Add two pink eyebrows.
- You don’t have to, but you can add an outline to some or all of his face. I didn’t do all of his face and I liked the way it turned out.
Pink nose or black nose?
I hope you get a chance to make some adorable kitty cookies. I know my granddaughter and I will bake and decorate some the next time we are together and I can’t wait! Hopefully, I can find the perfect cookie shape Tripp will want to decorate. Happy decorating my cookie friends!
